Genre/Influences: Electro-wave, guitar-wave. 

Background/Info: Here is the fourteenth chapter in the EP-series set up by Alexander Leonard Donat aka Vlimmer

Content: Every EP in the Vlimmer series reveals something different. The previous EP was driven by electro-wave music while this new work is characterized by guitar-wave mixed with electronic arrangements. Some passages are pretty evasive, but the 80s influence remains constant. The lyrics are once again sung in Donat’s Mother tongue. 

+ + + : If you’re into the darkness of the 80s cold/electro-wave music this “XIIII”-th edition is definitely something for you. I like the global approach, but especially the fact every new EP can’t be compared to its predecessor. 

– – – : The songs are easily listening pieces, but I’m missing high lights in this work. I didn’t experience “XIIII” as the most inspired work from the series. 

Conclusion: Vlimmer has four more EP’s to go to achieve the series, but this is not the one I’ll keep in mind.  

Best songs: “Klavierbeton”, “Kaskatoner”.  

Rate: (6).
