NTRSN - People Like Gods
Old School EBM When Belgian NTRSN's debut album 'People Like Gods' fires away with the first track "Flashback" it feels like being thrown back into the golden era of Belgian EBM during the middle of the 80's. I'm truly blown away and instantly hope that this album is able to keep it up all the way.

It continues well with the little more Kraftwerk inspired title track "People Like Gods" before the absolutely mind blowing "Never Before (Section One)". It is fun, it is different and have new sounds that you haven't heard before. By far the best track on the album. They even manage to keep it up with the next track called "Coming End" which is an industrial dance tune alike the good old days.

After that I'm afraid I feel a bit of a change, the songs get a bit more stiff and not as exciting, even though many of them are pretty alright and listenable. Good examples are "Chaosfields", "No Remorse" and "We Hate You", they are far from as exiting as the beginning of the album.

NTRSN sure impress me, but only half the way. Next time I hope they can endure the entire album.
