KMFDM has been self releasing or even better - self promoting in industrial rock music for many years. This CD sounds like a continuation of Hau Ruck released in 2005, what means it's a good direction, because the content of both CDs is an interesting one, easy to dance to at the parties and headbang on the shows.

Lucia temptates using her charm (I Am What I Am, Fait Accompli) to show her claws in a little while. I have to admit the CD grew on me tho. I didn't like it at the very first listening finding beginning songs somewhat standard but I liked it when I reached the middle of the CD content.

Actually once I've heard I Am What I Am mentioned above I was attracted to the songs till the very end of the CD. I have no idea what caused the tracklist set in such an order. If they put a bit trash metal Saft Und Kraft or Spit or Swallow with its simple but drawing attention rhythm at the very top of the tracklist it would sound better to me.
Besides above songs I'd like you to pay attention to Bumaye, with cool Far East music add-ons.

There is a balanced proportion between guitars and electronics on the CD, tho f.e. Looking For Strange is more for dancing and seems like taking a turn towards a different style of music. Superpower track may be liked by older industrial rock fans in love with Revolting Cocks or MLWTTKK because it reminds those early 90's WaxTrax! products which label KMFDM was signed to for many years.
