Trailog Dark Electro, EBM Digital Factor If you take a minute and think back on your days in the later compulsory school days, who do you remember from that era? Is it the person with regular clothes, regular grades and regular social skills? I think not. Instead, you remember the class clown, the crazy mofo, the bullies, the goth kids, that son of a bitch that got straight A's and not least, the super-hot girl with the big tits that you never could have (her name was Liv and she was beautiful). Digital Factor's 'Trialog' album sometimes borders on being regular. It's in the wasteland that is a good release, but far from excellent and I'm trying to find some reasons why I would come back to this album several months after this review. I somehow feel that I've heard this album before, that it follows the set path of how modernized EBM with Old School influences should sound like. Digital Factor has been in the game for such a long time now (beginning of the 90's), so the experience and knowledge is there and they show it in more successful tracks like "This is the Deal", "The Neighbour", "Steam", "Depression", "Come Push Me Down" and "The Way You Lie". But with six highlights in this 15 track strong album they joys feel a bit to spread out. Also, with the series of interludes, it's like the album is dragging its feet. A bit too much chit chats between the magic. With 'Trialog' I sence a kind of shotgun approach, letting the hail fly and hope that some will head straight for your chest, instead of using 6 Magnum bullets with high impact and with marksman skills. Chances are that I will pick out the few hails that actually hit me, patch myself up and never look back. 3
