Merging the musical lexicon of the dance floor with their own dark musings, Nitzer Ebb evokes an occasionally stunning mix of techno and industrial on their second full-length effort. At its best, Belief is a captivating call to surrender the pretensions of free will and control; escape is only possible through dance. The vocals, which alternate between athletic direction and threatening whispers, reveal an internal dialogue at work that both bullies and stalks the listener. Mute. 2001.

interesting step in the development of this band
Great music; horrible lyrics; overall good album

"Nitzer Ebb's BELIEF starts off on a good note with the excellent track "Heats and Mind," but unfortunately, the rest of the album is plagued by petty problems. The major complaint with this album that I have is the lyrics. Any adolescent, 13-year-old boy with a dark sense of humor and an unexplainable (yet typical) anger within him could write these childish lyrics. Just thinking about lines like "You are so you," "I'm driving on the edge," and "There's no faith, no feeling, and no good" make you feel like an angst-ridden teenager all over again, and some of you may not want to relive these strange feelings again.
However, the brilliant music is superb, and it outshines any of the music on SHOWTIME. My personal favorites are "Captivate," "Shame," and "Drive." All of them are prime examples of Nitzer Ebb songs, and perhaps that's why this album suffers: it is a typical album from Nitzer Ebb. No new ground is explored here, and even if the music is better then on their other albums, it still sounds the same, and the lyrics are truly terrible.
A good album overall, but the lyrics are a definite bust. It may deserve higher, but I'm going to give it a solid 4-stars. Don't get me wrong, this is a good album, it's just not my favorite"
