Lights of Euphoria - Querschnitt
EBM, Synthpop To erase all misunderstandings from the very beginning I would like to make clear that 'Querschnitt' is not the new full album from Lights of Euphoria after their latest E.P release 'Fading Moments'. This is a best-of which contains selected tracks from between 1993-2001.

First the thought was that Lights of Euphoria's big hit "Fortuneteller" would be on this record and a couple of interesting remixes by Funker Vogt and some other bands. Now when we can see the results it is very clear that this is not the case. Although we find 10 original tracks with cruel, straightforward EBM and 8 mixes from bands like Leatherstrip and Psyche.

The last time I heard Lights of Euphoria were when they released their Fading Moment E.P. and you can really say that their style have changed under the years but you can find some resemblance from the tracks of 2000. The music we find on this collection is harder, simpler and could sometimes remind of more sound filled Nitzer Ebb. Even though the sound of Lights of Euphoria's really sounds good nowadays I think I like this more. This is simply something for all the fans to stick their teeth in.
