DOS COBROS: Misadventures in Dystopia: CD

Jan 05, 2022

I don’t know that I’m the most qualified reviewer that could be assigned to work the cyber/industrial/whatever beat—to me, everything like this always kinda sounds like Ministry, not necessarily because it actually sounds like Ministry, but just because I don’t have a particularly well-developed frame of reference for it—but if this were playing at a party where the lights were low and everybody was walking around wearing a half-dozen glow sticks, I’d imagine it’d sound as good as anything else along those lines. I don’t think it really sounds like Ministry, just because I don’t get the sense that anyone is trying to dickslap me with their ego, which is certainly a step in the right direction. Some of the songs have those sort of ’90s alterna-metal guitar licks to them, some don’t. I like the ones that don’t. I state unequivocally that this is the best cyberpunk CD I’ve heard all month. BEST SONG: “Simonsaze (Rebellion Mix).” BEST SONG TITLE: “X’s in Our Eyes (Native Mix).” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Packaged in an old school floppy disc case for purposes of resetting the Matrix. –Rev.
