P.A.L: Modus CD Ant-Zen
P.A.L is somewhat a mini legend in the scene, and has been around for the long haul. Fair to say I was extremely interested in what to expect with this latest affair. A short Intro leads into ‘Agentenfister’ which kind of made me think of what it would be like if Whitehouse chilled out and went all musical on us.
Strangely enough, next on the agenda is some far out cod jazz and ambient. It’s a quirky mix and one which I am rather fond of.
There isn’t much in the way of aggression on Modus. Okay, maybe it’s an enforced, restrained aggression. Modus, for the majority of the album is relaxing, simplistic and an almost gentle affair. Take in ‘Delusion’, with its strings and meandering beat.
A genuine surprise in all its soundtrack attire. An oddly sparse album, but an enjoyable, mature and immersive journey nonetheless.
