My opinion

"You, You should've been there" (x 44), "The Fire (x26) The fire is getting higher (x6)", "Wam bam Slam bam, Call my name and here I am" (x24). "In one direction, baby (x4) You got me walking in one direction, baby (x20), Baby, baby (x8)", "Baby, baby (x60)", "Flash baby (x95), Isn't that beautiful (x8), Flash (x40), Flash Baby (x34)", "You, You should've been there (x30).
Thosse words are the highlights from the collected lyrics on this cd of Neon Electronics (or what we made out of them). On this basis we suspect that this cd is about the love for a one-wayed exhibitionist who came too late for a fire. Or something along that lines.
From Neon Judgement (because this is a project of NJ-half Dirk Da Davo together with Remo Perotti, Flemish TV-audiences might recall him as the "Sjamajee!"-man) this project has inherited the dark atmospheres. To that there have been added a firm gulch of electronic beats, samples and synths in various styles. At times from this mixture comes crawling a well-succeeded combination, such as on the single "u.b.there", the Kraftwerk-ish "Time" and the breakbeats of "u.always". But even more often this gives nothing but what is imho rather silly, over-repetitive and kinda boring.
For the time being, this cd can only be bought from the internet, through a brand new label. U there, in the real world, U haven't been missing much.

The lowest price is in yellow, the highest in red. This price comparison doesn't take things into account like deduction of shipping expenses when ordering more than 1 cd, bonus points, differences in guarantees ... Shipping prices are those for customers in Belgium.

Have you seen this record elsewhere on the net, do you own an online-CD-shop with Belgian products in it, or if there's something wrong with my calculations : let me know.
