Rotersand - Random is Resistance
Electro-Industrial After Rotersand's release of the EP 'War on Error' I felt some major excitement of their upcoming full-length album 'Random is Resistance'. Still, I feel this was somewhat of a trailer failure scenario, you know, where all the explosions and cool stuff are shown already in the trailer and when you see the full movie, you've already seen the good parts.

After the great slow-going and acoustic introduction "Yes We Care" (a sarcastic blow against Obama's "Yes We Can" perhaps?) we are ready for "Bastards Screaming" which was one of the best tracks from the EP and it really builds the momentum for "Waiting To Be Born" which is an outstanding song and simply begging for a single release, since it's the best song on the album. More EP material is to come with "Speak To Me" and then "We Will Kill Them All" where the later one had an awesome "Lullaby" version on the EP, but unfortunately it's destroyed through and through in this album version.

From that point things go downhill, "First Time", "Beneath The Stars" and the other four priory unreleased songs are all quite boring and at least to me, they don't manage to twitch my electro nerve. The title track from the EP, "War on Error" is also included, but just like with "We Will Kill Them All", it's a boring version where the "Declaration" version from the EP is a hundreds times better.

I don't think I've never done this before, but I urge you to buy the EP instead of the full album, since the EP is actually better. I guess sometimes less is better.
