Kartagon - Natural Instincts
Electro Before I knew that Kartagon really were Kartagon I had heard their second track (first track is an intro titled "The Dawn") "The Hunter" a couple of times in different clubs. When I received the record through my mail slot I became gladly surprised about receiving an album from the group that made that charming and nice song.

Even the third track "Pure Love" is a charming composition with its danceable bass and the sweet loops. This track was earlier released as a single containing a remix by Assemblage 23. Even though you still feel kind of excited during "1000 Words", and a little less excited during "Free Fall", almost everything dies with the kind of wimpy tracks "Deadly Silence", "Disko Queen" and "Flying to the Moon".

Even though this record tries to fight its way up again with the tracks "A picture" and "Love at first sight", it never gets over the surface again, despite the interesting cover of David Bowie's "This is not America", before it all ends with the boring remix of "Pure Love" with the additional name "Slow Motion".

To sum it up this record is very varied with its 16 tracks, both in song quality, production and even sometimes music style. Sometimes a little bit heavier, sometimes a bit slow and every now and then it sounds like greasy pop.
