THE YOUNG GODS / Second Nature (2000)

The Young Gods are no strangers to genre blending; they’d been merging ambient, industrial, and dance for years before this 5th album emerged.
Song structures on most tracks are similar to what they've delivered before but the techno element (what I call techno – I'm no expert on the subtleties of the genre) is much too overpowering for my liking.
Consequently, the tracks which I feel stand out are the ones that go in the opposite direction, into more experimental territories using sounds and contrasts that no one else is coming even close to.

Songs of Note: Attends; Love 2.7

2½ abstractions out of 5
