There are lots of good songs around, but not very many good bands. Bands that have quality on every song, every album. I do look for new music regularly. The one band that I have come to truly respect is Diary Of Dreams. "Nekrolg 43" is a great introduction to their sound. 80% of their songs are in english, the rest are in German.

I agree with you but in the mean time please get the album "Fearless" by the Icelandic band Legend. Their music is like a perfect mix of DM, NIN with some Peter Gabriel on top. Highly praised and Very addictive stuff..

Best Electro album of 2012.. :cool:

I was thoroughly enjoying discovering unsigned artists whom were fans of Depeche Mode's/New Order's/Simple Minds' electronic sounds, and whom were making great records in the early 2000's. These are just a few of the best:


Intervox - One Is, (2000)
Borrowed Wings (2000)
and The Ghost In You (2004)

Enchanted Mood - Katie Doesn't Mind (Fracture mix), 2005

Trust No-One - Positive Thinking (2000),
Passion (2000)
and These Feelings Fade (2003)


and finally... Empress Touch

Yes, Legend is a good band from what I had heard of them so far. I'll have to get Fearless. I even shared the some of the youtube links to some of their songs with a friend. There seems to be a lot of good pop music out there. You just have to look beyond the radio sometimes.
