It H-Hurts the Instrumentals
Instrumental versions of Anti-m songs, many remixed. Features 5 songs from the Film YOU ONLY DIE ONCE available on Filmbaby.com Reviews: Five years on and.haven't we heard this before somewhere,..and the band reconvene, only, even more strangely than ever, to do a CD comprising instrumental version of their best tracks from the previous two CD's, and even including extended versions and remixes, on seventeen tracks (nothing by halves, this lot!!) in seventy nine minutes (value for money for sure!!). Best bit is that it all begins to make sense in this form with synths to the fore, guitars in there too, and a set of predominantly three-four minute tracks that really deliver, from punchy rhythmic stuff full of synths and the odd guitar line, to more atmospheric offerings and all sorts in between. With Ronnie Montrose on guitar on the same four tracks, Steve Weber on guitar elsewhere, and plenty of synths and electronic drums, this is a most engaging album, but where you classify it, lord alone knows. Andy Garibaldi-CD Service This is very cool stuff. The members of this group must have had movies in mind; their instrumentals would make exceptional soundtrack music. Guitar guru Ronnie Montrose (how in the world did these guys hook up with him?) peels paint with his licks on a number of tracks, and the synthetic keyboards---never my favorite thing, they actually epitomize everything I hate about Eighties pop music, in fact---are employed to great effect here. This really should hit the eardrums of film producers: the opening is a clever James Bond salute; 'Television' and 'Lonely (FX mix)' remind me of 'Miami Vice'; 'Coma' would fit right into 'The X-Files' with it's spine-tingling effects. Again, I could not be less enthralled with electronic music, but even without Montrose's six-string wizardry, Anti-M have produced a really exceptional example of this sub-category of pop music. Buy it, listen to it, and if you're a creative sort like I am, write to it; I will. -EG.
