CD Reviews

Kenneth G. Sodergren | Arlington, TX United States | 01/10/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got this cd by mail order a year after it came out, I had no idea what I was getting. This CD is to ambient music what Frampton Comes Alive was to 70s rock, revolutionary. Project 80, an hour long, is an unequaled journey into darkness. Complex, textured, emigmatic, all words that describe this music. Nothing really compares to this cd, in its darkness and complexity. If you like your ambient deep and dark, do yourself a favor and find this cd."
Marking the end...a true work of musical art
William Petersen | MD United States | 12/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For many fans of dance, ambient, ebm and industrial, they all can find roots in Cabaret's music. Cabaret is defined by their own distinct sound that has no definable sound. Early works were terse, paranoid, brilliant and a challenging listen. The later works moved from Code's cold pop dance to the current Conversation's ambient feel. This album is the last proper one by the duo and its title is clear. It is a conversation between them and you. Take a listen and then progress to their earlier works to experience a band's own musical evolution and appreciate the subtle but profound impact on many of today's music. Dig further and enjoy Richard H. Kirk's solo work including that done under Electronic Eye."
The quintessential, crucial, unparalleled ambient album
James T. Heeney ( | West Caldwell, New Jersey | 10/22/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can only put William Orbit's "Strange Cargo III" in the same league. Here, the duo who, perhaps more than any act other than Can deserve the credit for changing modern music in the electronic age, present their swansong. Extremely different from the "dance" albums of the mid-eighties, this evocative album overwhelms the listener subliminally and overtly. Like so many artists, Cabaret Voltaire do not receive the attention that is given to their far less talented and innovative imitators."
