Mean analog and chop vox make mad groove.

"In this side project from God Lives Underwater, the industrial penchant for driving sound comes through beautifully while maintaining (or establishing) some kind of super-pop house feel. The analog skill Mass Hystereo wields is astounding, and it's hard not to be drawn along. Although extraordinarily professional and distinctive, the percussion left me feeling somewhat cheated as it failed to truly interface w/ the melody. All in all an excellent single. Anyone hungry for a taste of pseudo-80's technocore, face-lifted and polished by soft-spoken electric handlers should totally scope this disc."
This is 1/2 God Lives Underwater

"Mass Hystereo is basically Jeff Turzo from God Lives Underwater. I love GLU so I was expecting this cd to be awesome. It's not bad but its problem is-it doesn't know what it wants to be. First it'll start off techno then dance then jungle, then acid chomp box, then weird. You can't get into it without it all of a sudden changing in one song. If you love GLU I'd suggest picking it up, it's different and experimental. But personally I didn't even really like the Mass Hystereo mixes of God Lives Underwater-'From your Mouth'. I did like this cd in a weird way though.
Jeff Turzo has a new band called 'WIRED ALL WRONG' you should check them out!
'David Reilly - INSIDE e.p.' is due out late May 2004 on corporate Punishment records. [...]"
The bottom of the barrel. Bland, flavorless dance music at i

"I fished this out of a discount record bin after being amused that any retailer would even bother selling a CD that they had marked down to $0.50. I still think I overpaid. Mass Hystereo is an exercise in the most banal, generic of all dance music. It sounds something like a watered down Crystal Method - a blend of big beat and acid house, but in a boring repetitive manner and without anything to set it apart from all the other material out there.
It's totally flavorless music like this that gives dance music a bad name in some circles. God Lives Underwater is responsible for some interesting music, but this side project is so by-the-numbers and unremarkable, that I have to wonder what Jeff Turzo was thinking when he made this.
