NEXUS - THE BEAT SYNDICATE
The fourth album of the top Greek band Nexus,The Beat Syndicateis their most complete music statement.
Intelligent and imaginative, highly atmospheric, steeped in mist and melancholy, but most of all, full of driving dance music,The Beat Syndicate is the group''s masterpiece.
After 3 albums of gothic-industrial madness, Nexus return with an album that shines so brightly and colourfully - a kick in the balls for clubland snobs.
Nexus is a project run by singer/keyboard player Mike Pougounas, the drummer/computer guru Jim Stevis and the bass and guitar player Costas Spanos.
While recording the album in the studio, in Athens, the band picked the title The Beat Syndicate because of the driving compositions with dark bass-lines that form and direct the melodies. Behind the dancy beat that teeter''s on gothic''s edge, Mike''s vocals are deep and dark.
Having a 100% club hit, titled Drop The Luv Bomb, Nexus spin off heartstopping tracks such as the You Always Get A Second Chance and the fleshier arrangements of SavioursOwn Slump.
They have once more opted to give it electronified gothic with wit, wild statements and stormy guitars with Addicted To Ya.
High Heels On Wheels unveils the band as a spiked synthetic pop unit of considerable merit that can jump from the sublime elegance of the minimalistic Happiness Is A Lonely Place to the ala Nine Inch Nails industrial sounds of TV-Whoring.
Long raincoats and perfect, pioneering beats always go together when you listen to this album and the proof can be found in the title track, a pseudo-concert of The Beat Syndicate, as well as in the industrial-jazz teeth of All Clues Lead To Mr. Motto.
The Beat Syndicate will be everybodys favourite Nexus album for a variety of reasons, and most of those reasons are quite simply delicious songs.
Beautifully pale and wan but with an urge to move your feet, there are so many highlights that it seems unfair to point to anything in particular.
A major album !
