Clinical, precise and brilliant

"The industrial pioneers released one of the albums of the year with this. Minor MTV hit Isolation isn't even the best song, as Eggshell and Metamorphosis will attest. The old industrial/thrash chesnut was taken a step further with 'the german James Hetfield' Jurgen Engler firmly at the helm, planting richly distorted riffs down over pumping industrial drum tracks. Very good, and recommended to people who like heavy music with clarity and intelligence"

"I was impressed by Die Krupps varied vocal styles. Each track was distintive and well mixed. This album was my first CD from this band. Oddly enough I had never heard this band before I bought it and I wasn't let down. This was a great disc and I think it is a must have for industrial fans."
Jekyll or hyde? metal or electronics?

"'Odyssey of the Mind' maybe was the logical evolution of a band which had begun in the early 80's with a techno-industrial music with similarities with 'DAF' or later Nitzerr Ebb and which from 1991 would develop a kind of metal-industrial; with every album they added more guitars but also they worked the electronic parts better. An example of this is 'The Final Option', which is for me an example of good blending of metal and electronics and their best album ever. 'Odyssey of the Mind' does have some songs which are similar to those of their previous album: 'Metalmorphosis', 'Isolation'... but the album relies more on a metal basis which I let the fans of this type of music rate it; Engler's voice is usually much too typical (does he want to rival Pantera?) and his pose is much too stereotypically heavy-metal. Most of the songs follow a very recognizable pattern: they begin very electronic and then the metal guitars enter the game and the song ends almost forgetting its electronic elements, which are usually put in a second place dominated by the guitars. There're good songs though: 'Last Flood', 'Isolation', 'Scent' or 'Metalmorphosis'; the others are much too metal for me. The real jewel in the record is 'Alive', a very beautiful ballad and one of the best DK's songs ever. Their following album would even envigourate the metal elements leaving the electronics much aside. But new album 'Dekaydence', which features singer Engler in his new side-project sounds more like an evolution from 'The Final Option' as if the two following more-metal albums would have never existed."
