Even without cyberpunk lyrics, did you like it?

Mr. Roboto said:

Yeah, I liked it. It’s a good album IMHO, but hearing about how it could have been make me hope for a re-release as it was intended.

Definitely worth hunting down.

Klaw said:

Thanks for the write-up… it’s an interesting story as to it’s original concept I agree… although as scary as a concept album is, to me a rock opera is scarier. :)

Definitely will keep an eye out for it.

Not sure if this information is of any use, but the name Rodney Orpheus rand my bell immediatly- He is a practicioner Thelema, a philosophy divised by Aleister Crowley. He has an interesting site that for some reason doesn’t work right now. Interesting guy.

I saw them live 2 years ago @ WGt in Leipzig. Still rocking after all those years. True industrial.

I really enjoy this album, i think everything about it is great. Ugly and Sleeper by far my favorite songs.
I urge anyone to check out the ‘new’ Nine Inch Nails album, one of the best they’ve released. (For anyone interested. ;P)

Track for examination?

[…] trawling round the net, I found this somewhat odd review of Cyberpunx. It’s pretty strange to see an album being reviewed 17 years after it came out, but I take […]

Thanks for the unexpected review! As it happens we’re heading back into the studio in the next weeks and one of the things on the agenda is a possible remaster of this album in the correct form - which would mean a totally different track order and several additional tracks.

Seeing the replies here gives that idea yet more impetus.

Could anyone maybe upload or post a link to listen to one or two tracks off this album? I really wanna know what it sounds like before I go and get it.

I remember I bought this around 91 or so…Much of Cassandra Complex Work has a very Cyperpunkish Feel to it, also Theomania, I think.
And, given the growing Islamization of ‘Neuropa’ Rodney was really prophetic “Jihad is coming, the Third World War is coming home…”

I also bought it in ‘91, just because of its title and cover., as an LP, and a year or so later as CD. I liked it a lot then, still like it a lot. Because of it I bought all of their discography. Since you have quoted Orpheus’s remarks, you already know that their website contains all the lyrics of all their songs.
“Fire and Forget” from Finland EP is my second favourite after Nightfall.
I also like Orpheus’s notes from the album covers, they show someone who really likes SF.
I would suggest to also check VALIS (yes, from the P.K.Dick novel) from their album “Wetware” (2000, their latest so far). The title is, of course, a reference to Rudy Rucker’s novel with the same name, just how much more cyberpunk can you get…

Alexander Giochalas said:

It just crossed my mind that you might like to check the band Covenant
(Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covenant_(band), band website: http://www.covenant.se/)
Their 1994 album “Dreams of a Cryotank” contains a song called “Replicant”, which tells the story of Blade Runner.
Also, throughout the album, especially in the long track “Cryotank Expansion” there are samples from Blade Runner and other SF movies, like 2001. (this is straight from one of the band members, we had exchanged some e-mails back around 2001).
Their album “United States of Mind” (2000) contains a track named “Like Tears in Rain”, another homage to BR.
I think they have quite a few songs that might be considered CP or have CP themes.

>> “Then again, Europe doesn’t get off easy either (There’s not much to Europe really, it’s so small)”

I think you’ve missed the point here a bit. The above line is something that the “American tourist” in the song is supposed to be saying, showing his ignorance of Europe. It’s not lyrics slamming Europe, it’s the ignorant worldview of the travelling american.

So, it’s really going to happen :)
The Cassandra Complex at the Castle Party in Poland. Good choice and hope you have fun :)
Thanks!
