NamNamBulu is the European synth-pop project of Henrik Iversen and Vasi Vallis. They offer modern synth-pop songs on this recording that blend the energy of EBM with the vocals and melodies of electro pop. As soon as I heard the first track "Memories" I knew instantly that this was a quality band. They know what they're doing, and do it well.

The music is upbeat and energetic with great texturing and layering of electronic programming, catchy beats and mesmerising melodies. The vocals are deep in tone and sing with a lot of emotion and range. Everything is mixed exceptionally well offering a polished sound.

From the very first time I listened to this CD I was hooked. And I haven't been able to stop listening to it. Each and every song is top notch. There's not one I dislike. There's a good mix of club hits and melodic songs. And everything is placed on the CD perfectly. The album flows smoothly from start to finish.

I can't really say enough good things about this CD. Everything that I like about this genre of music is done properly here. If you like synth-pop and future pop music, this CD can't be missed.
