I love it when things come out of Eastern Europe, as my music seems to be saturated with British and American music. This probably meant I gave a little more time to COG than I otherwise would have.
They are a noise band, with drums dominating and punctuating throughout the songs and guitars distorting somewhere behind. ‘101’ starts with just drums and bass and the minimalist intro definitely strikes a chord with me.
Being a bit of a word nerd, I like to understand the meanings of songs, but I also wish bands would sing in their own language. So many European bands come here and sing to us with American accents, and I just wonder what the point is. Unfortunately that’s one of the flaws I find with this album.
However if that doesn’t bother you, then this is an album to listen to on its musical credits.
