Funker Vogt hits us again with this amazing realease Code 7477. With their harsh melodies and intensive programming Code 7477 is in your face Funker Vogt. The first song brings me back to the days of "Thanks For Nothing" with "Funker Vogt (Completed) This song is up , up , up. , meaning I want to get up and dance. Well, this is what I got from the first song, the next track Funker Vogt - 2nd Unit (Krolled) was even better. I sort of like this better because it has less harshness , and more melodies that were even better to dance too. The first song has a lot more angst. Well, back to the second song that brings be back to "We came to Kill", but still this track is definitely a dance floor anthem. There are four "Funker Vogt" songs done differently, and track 2 is my personal favorite on the album. "Funker Vogt" (March On) has more guitars, and that heavy thick sound you might find in KMFDM. Another good approach by Funker Vogt for this mix. "Funker Vogt" ( 2nd Unit Transmitted) is more in the vein of the 2 track. It has more melodic beats, and not as harsh vocals, which for me helps the song more danceable. This track is has smooth synths, and a good beat with the main programming. There are 2 other tracks besides the Funker Vogt" tracks, and that is of "Black Hole" I would say that the last track before the bonus of Tazi Zum Mars, is "Black Hole" Blind. This song has a slower tempo and has a slow bounce to it. I really like how the programming has been done here. It sort of swings back at you. I like the dance beats within this song, it is not made for fast dancing but the dance that you just fall into to. Again, Funker Vogt has given us many dance anthems that will ring out on the dance floor with Code 7477.
