Genre/Influences: EBM, Body-Pop.
Background/Info: This new EP is the third one taken from AD:Key’s sixth album “Resonanz” released last year. The work features five edits of the title track plus 2 remixes of another album song “Schlachtfeld Der Liebe”.
Content: “Alles Was Ich Will” is quite characteristic for the “Resonanz”-album; still driven by good-old and well-crafted EBM, but with some extra Electro-Pop elements on top. There’s a “Single Mix” and “Tanz Mix” plus remixes by Final Selection, Implant and less familiar X10ded. “Schlachtfeld Der Liebe” has been adopted into a “Single Edit” as well plus an alternative and totally reworked edit.
+ + + : I have to admit the title song was not exactly my favorite cut from the album, but it remains AD:Key-stuff: danceable and revealing an intelligent retro-EBM style while the German vocals by Rene and Andrea Nowotny inject a special touch to the work. The “Single Mix” sounds cool, but especially the club-orientated remix by Implant is the true attention grabber. There’s also something to say about the down-tempo, evasive remix by Final Selection. And X10ded injected some extra ‘robotic’ elements to the song, which are cool as well.
– – – : “Schlachtfeld Der Liebe” doesn’t really add a true bonus to the EP. The song didn’t catch my attention on the album and both new edits aren’t convincing.
Conclusion: This EP is an item for the fans of the band, but definitely not the record I would recommend to discover this great formation.
Best songs: “Alles Was Ich Will – Club Mix by Implant”, “Alles Was Ich Will – Forever Sentimental Mix by Final Selection”, “Alles Was Ich Will – Single Mix”.
