Reflections & Refractions is a follow-up remix album for England’s Libitina who has started becoming very popular if you have not noticed already. This remix album also offers songs from past Libitina albums now with the new singer’s voice. One the things I said in the past about Libitina was that their music was meant for the dance floor and they must have listened because this is a very dance friendly CD. When I first started listening to this CD and heard the Terrorfakt mix of “Valedictions,” I have blown away. What an awesome industrial mix. This is aggressive and I don’t about you but it made me what to dance. I was shocked when I heard this on this new CD, but at the same time I was so happy! What an entrance this song makes on this remix CD. At this point I am not sure what to expect next? “Dirt I cannot Wash,” now has more of gothic style with thick bass and guitar. This is a strong remix with plenty of industrial, gothic and electronics pushing its way through the remix by “Pretentious, Moi.” You can hear another remix of this song that has more of darker electro feel. Wow, another impressive song. Ok, onto “Mea Culpa Libitina Vs. Inertia. This is an explosive track with more EBM structure and less Industrial. So, who won? Well, I think both of these guys did awesome. I am now stunned with how good this is. Now comes Swarf, ! and “A Higher Unity” This is pure EBM, I mean pure! This is one of the best club beats I have heard in a long time. This song also has added guitar which is a great mix which was not expected at first with the EBM clubby beat starting things off. Other tracks that really impressed me were: the remix of Shibboleth by another great gothic rock band from England called Syntheic. This track had anthem like feel and was driven more by guitars then electronics. This is a great remix effort by the band. I was able to get into many of the tracks. There were a few that did not go over well with me, but the others make up for that. Definitely check this out!
