KMFDM [reviews]
Na´ve |WaxTrax!, 1990|

1. Welcome, 2. Na´ve, 3. Die Now-Live Later, 4. Piggybank, 5. Achtung!, 6. Friede (Remix), 7. Liebeslied, 8. Go to Hell, 9. Virus (Dub), 10. Disgust (Live), 11. Godlike (Chicago Trax Version)

KMFDM is the industrial rock/metal powerhouse, created by Sascha Konietzko. Na´ve is the band's 5th album, and the most interesting to date. This time, Sascha is backed by En Esch, GŘnter Schulz, Rudolph Naomi, and Christine Stewart on the album.

"Welcome to a world of KMFDM. Let me introduce you to our new album, Na´ve". A heart-felt opening statement when I popped in the album blasted throughout the speakers. Immediately following the message came the track "Na´ve". If fans of KMFDM were comfortable to the reggae vibe of UAIOE or the experimental vibe of Don't Blow Your Top (two earlier KMFDM albums), then they're in for another new ride. "Na´ve" has a relaxed atmosphere the entire time. Stewart's sexy vocals are perfect for backing up the relaxed atmosphere created by the others. It's extremely hard to even slap a genre tag on "Na´ve" due to the uniqueness.

Other songs on the album give off a nod to the metal experiments of KMFDM. "Go to Hell," "Piggybank", and "Liebeslied" have heavy notable guitar riffs that are prominent within the tracks. Some of the other tracks have an almost danceable funk influence to them. "Friede (Remix)" and "Virus (Dub)" come to mind.

A disappointment about the album is that a better tracklist could have been assembled. The songs "Friede (Remix)", "Virus (Dub)", "Disgust (Live)", and "Godlike (Chicago Trax Version)" are all Ś yep, you guessed it Ś remixes of their original counterparts. I've heard the originals, and all 4 are better than the remixes that are found on Na´ve. If you're interested in this album or KMFDM in general, then I suggest to seek out the 4 originals.

Overall, Na´ve is a solid and refreshing effort by KMFDM. Even though it'll disappoint those reggae lovers that listened to UAIOE on constant rotation, Na´ve is worth picking up anyway. (Xenerki)
