Mona Mur - Into Your Eye
Electro, Industrial New Wave Punker Mona Mur. I didn't know of her existence before I got this CD. But I have a feeling that she's been mostly known in Germany. Anyway, her music sounds a bit decadent but at the same time fresh and a bit ripping. I would like to say that her music is me for about six years ago. A little bit of a rebellion but still well balanced.

Since this seems to be some kind of "best of" record this must be some kind of summary of her music from day one till today. I must say that I like the songs made in the early ears more than those made later on, and the most recent ones are good too.

Some songs I can recommend are "My Lie", "Eintagsfliegen", "120 Tage" and "Indra". Sometimes I think the music sounds very much like Joy Division and other similar bands and sometimes it sounds more like Nena, remixed by Skinny Puppy which makes it hard for me to make a grading for this CD, especially when the musical qualities are so shifting.
