Great Pitchfork CD

"... Pitchfork is more into composing songs that make a direct statement compared to Skinny Puppy, who are far more interested in musical experimentation.Honestly, this is one of my favorite Project Pitchfork CDs. It isn't as heavy as some of their earlier stuff, and not as light as the newer material they've put out recently. I think that is what makes this CD so great. I can put on Alpha Omega no matter what mood I'm in, and I'll enjoy listening to it. The closest comparison I would make is to "IO" or "Entities".This is a slower album, but not weak. The songs are airy and dreamy. The lyrics are not as fantastic as on Pitchfork's later works, but are still very expressive of the frustration and exasperation that the songs wish to relate. This is not the Ministry/:Wumpscut: type of industrial. It's not dance-y like V.A.C., and it's not as (sorry) wussie as VNV Nation. That's why I like "Alph Omega", and why I like Project Pitchfork. They really do have their own distinct sound."

"I've heard (and read) a lot of reviews about this album and project pitchfork in general and a lot of them say they sound like Skinny Puppy. Do you people even LISTEN to music? This band does NOT sound like skinny puppy. Skinny Puppy could take lessons from the musicians in this band. Alpha Omega is one of Project Pitchforks best albums. (Entities being the best). Project Pitchfork has awesome melodies and soothing sounds with and edge and words that acually MEAN something. Buy this album and LISTEN."
Catchy and addictive

"Project Pitchfork's music is the harshest I go in terms of ENJOYING industrial music. Mid-tempo industrial would best describe their sound. Harsh, abrasive, loud, but very catchy, dancable and not too fast and frenzied. This cd is pretty much the middle ground in terms of Project Pitchfork's musical collection as well, although both extremes are covered. The organic and divinely dreamy "Green World" is practically a lullaby as far as PP's music goes while "The Animal" is easily one of the harshest PP songs I have heard. That's why I would recommend this cd as the best starting point for someone unfamiliar with their sound. The best songs are the mid-tempo industrial dance songs, which are "Silent Scream", "Requiem", and "Endzeit". "Alpha Omega" is also a good song and if you like it then you will absolutely love the (Over 10 minute!) reprise "Omega Alpha" which blows "Alpha Omega" away. As stated by another reviewer here, songs from the EP "Corps D'amour" should have been included here. It would have made this album a lot better. Amazon.com currently doesn't have "Corps D'amour" available but it would definitely be worth the effort to find it, especially if you enjoyed this album. "Corps D'amour" is a six track EP that is similar to "Alpha Omega" only better.Another note worth mentioning is the nifty Tin box( as opposed to a normal plastic jewel case ), which is really unique and cool, as long as you have the patience to snap it apart and closed.If you're not too partial to industrial but still like your synth aggressive then get "IO" instead, which is their best. Then check out "Chakra:Red!"( 2nd best ) for an even more dance orientated cd with the classic Project Pitchfork flair."
