Re:Legion - 11:11:11
EBM, Electro-Industrial The Re:Legion album can be divided up into two parts. One has merit and something they should strive to continue with. The other part needs immediate attention if Re:Legion wants to play with the big boys of the EBM genre.

I got the 2CD version of '11:11:11', but this review will focus on the 11 original one CD tracks. Going through and writing about a whole CD of remixes will not be interesting for either you, or me for that matter.

Let?s start with the good news. What Re:Legion does right is the music parts of '11:11:11'. Even though they might come off as not so evolutionary nor anything new, they are solid beats for the dance floor, nice melodies when it comes to the both highlighted and less highlighted ones. Here, Re:Legion has the chance to shine on the heavier dance floors of your local club. The instrumental dance tune "En:trance" is a perfect example of when all comes together and where Re:Legion truly shines. Simply the best track on the album.

The bad news? The vocals are simply terrible and that goes for most of the lyrics as well. Themes about war was done and overdone by Funker Vogt and I think they have done it so much; most of us have a bad taste in our mouths. The grunting vocals are overwhelmingly out of key and sound simply bad during most of this albums playtime. Sure, nothing uncommon in this genre, however, I will never accept it.

Re:Legion has the potential and with efforts made on the right places, things can truly go their way.
