Country of Origin

Rolling Stone (p.66) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] stripped-down set of Nineties-style trans-Europe synth grooves. They revel in the dark-wave textures and autobahn beats of 'Single Blip' and 'Skip This Track'..."
Magnet (p.60) - "Sleeker and more technologically refined, SSSS is a showcase for new tools....Completists will be sated -- as they invariably are -- by this fun, beat-happy collection."
Billboard (p.33) - "It's a hard-thumping minimal-techno set with instructive titles like 'Bendy Bass,' 'Single Blip' and 'Windup Robot.'"
Uncut (magazine) (p.88) - "The ominous production and gothic moods illuminate rather than overshadow the real life experiences and striking stylistic advance at the album's core."

Pop / Rock
When the man behind the first Depeche Mode album (plus Yaz, Erasure, and a couple other things) reunites with the man behind all the rest of their efforts (which turned them into a more lyrics-driven group) you'd think the synth pop-and-somewhat-goth fan base would consider their album release a holiday. VCMG stands for Vince Clarke (first album) and Martin Gore (the rest) and their release, SSSS, is hardly what you'd call ambitious, but it is inspired, filled with minimal techno tracks that have identifiable contributions from the two. Punchy drum machines and chimey, "Just Can't Get Enough"-styled synths (Clarke) mix with atmospherics and other touches that suggest deep space (Gore) and everything runs clean five to seven minutes, allowing for head-bobbing and hypnosis without tedium. To say this sounds like raw demos for Erasure's Circus or a dubby freebie given away with Depeche's Ultra clues fans into the sonic landscape, although it's obvious these songs weren't designed for vocalists as they all feel standalone, ready to be shipped off to Mute, or Tresor if that doesn't work out. Adjust to it being low-key, sometimes background music, and SSSS won't be leaving the average synth pop fan's headphones anytime soon. ~ David Jeffries
