Carbon Elektriq Futurepop, Synthpop Conetik This is an album that has been lying around at my desk for a very long time now; I have bad conscience about it. But now while I sit writing down my thought about Conetik's album 'Carbon Elektriq' I understand why I haven't done this sooner. I really haven't remembered to do it. The album is very meaningless and I haven't felt the urge one time after the first listening to listen to it again. That is how I feel after every time I have listened to it. It's soft, it's meaningless and it's melancholic. The music needs more bass and more synth loops due to be memorable. Maybe it's just that sound that the two Norwegian boys are trying to deliver, or they are trying to get a harder sound but fails. The numbers of songs on the album are as many as 17, much too many according to me, 12-13 would have been slightly enough. One of the songs is a cover of Pet Shop Boys'' "Heart", and sure, it's okay, it's synthpop. Some other songs worth mentioning are "I got away", "Dead end", "Superfluous" and "Elektronova". The last-mentioned song is according to me the best song on the whole album. This review was written 2005 by Jenny Sjöström and initially published on Neurozine.com 250
