No Comment is a synth-pop band with female vocals. Franziska
Kalb has a sweet voice that sings along to the music with an attractive
accent. She is also joined by deep accented male vocals from time to
time that help to add even more dimension to the songs.
What I like about this band is that while they create upbeat electro-pop
music, it never sounds sappy or cheesy. It’s always energetic for the
clubfloor featuring driving rhythms and beats.
The lyrics are interesting and well written for the most part like short
stories. Everything is done extremely well throughout this entire album. The
music is tightly textured and layered with catchy beats and beautiful synth
melodies. Both singers are very talented with a lot of range to their
voices. The songs contain a lot of twists and turns to keep them quite
interesting from beginning to end. I like the fact that there are no really
slow or boring songs here. Everything moves at a rather fast pace to keep
the listener entertained.
My only complaints are that I would have liked greater use of the male
vocals and longer playing times for the songs. While Franziska is a great
singer that can carry the songs with her voice alone, the male vocals add an
extra element to the songs they’re on. Also, some songs are a bit short
ending before they should. But these are minor complaints considering the
overall quality of this album.
My advice to the band would be to continue creating the kind of music that
they did on this album. I could easily see them going more commercial pop in
the future, and I would hate to see that happen. If anything, they should
get even darker. Some songs on this album lean toward commercial pop while
others lean more toward dark synth-pop. This CD is a must for synth-pop fans
that like female vocals.
