Zeromancer - It Sounds Like Love (But It Looks Like Sex)
Electrorock Zeromancer's latest album 'Sinners International' was not liked by many reviewers, but I really enjoyed it and thought it to be a really strong album. Now they release their first CDS/EP from this album and it's one of my favourite tracks from the album, "It Sounds Like Love (But It Looks Like Sex)".

"It Sounds Like Love (But It Looks Like Sex)" is in its album version in this single and therefore not different in any way. It's a real rock bash out with a habit forming refrain, like a classic rock song should be like. Furthermore, we also get the B-side "Mercenary" which is a great tune, I don't know if it is a left out from the album or a new track, but it sure would fit right in to the album as well, pure Zeromancer all the way. It is a bit slower than the title track, but doesn't drag the experience down one inch.

Depeche Mode's "Photographic" have been covered so (too?) many times, but Zeromancer does lives up to the original and does perhaps one of the better covers of this tune, worth checking out.

We also get two remixes, first off is the album title track, "Sinners International" in a Snifferdog remix, where things get more or less purely electronic. This is a great new way of looking at the track, perhaps it could work as a dance floor remix? The next remix is Red 7 of "It Sounds Like Love (But It Looks Like Sex)" and I don't like it all. It got a mumbling soundscape and no distinct sounds are to be found, in my opinion, it actually manages to destroy the original completely.

Overall it's a great release from Zeromancer and if you liked the album, you should really check it out.
