While I did enjoy Pygmy Childrenís previous release, it did have a lot of Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy influences. Also, all of the songs sounded the same with a mid-tempo pace and distorted whispered male vocals. Enter a whole new Pygmy Children now with much more power and passion with dark energetic electro beats and cleaner rougher angry vocals that release rage with catchy chorusí.

While each song here does stick to a similar formula, they do feature ever changing verses and chorusí unique to each song making them all stand out on their own. This is a consistant CD from start to finish delivering solid well structured songs throughout. This is due in part to the excellent production of George Hagegeorge (Under The Noise/Urania).

If you want a good solid quality aggressive electro-industrial/EBM album with a touch of melody, this Pygmy Children CD is a good choice.

This is very electronic music. The beats and rhythms are extremely catchy. The vocals are slightly distorted, and some samples are thrown into the mix. All of the songs tend to sound the same. They don't offer anything new. The rhythms are slightly different, but play along at the same pace. The vocals don't change, either. It's pretty much the same singing style on each song. All of the songs are good, but none of them really stand out. They each have their own unique groove, but still sound very alike. This music could be played in clubs due to its groovy hooks, but it is a bit slow paced and moody.
