If you know me you should know that I am a big Die Form fan. I was unsure about the new release "Best of XXX"
I thought it was another compilation but I am pleasantly surprised; Eliane is given a bigger role, especially in the older stuff. Sometimes her voice can come across as forced operatic, but with her new vocal recordings you can tell she is enjoying herself with having more input in the rerecordings of the old songs. I'm loving her involvement in Automatic Love which I have already loved but having her sing on it makes it fun. I just like that it seems she's given freedom to sing; some older songs seem like she was dictated on how exactly she should sing. Plus there's an updated version on the 3rd disk of "Glassphyxie" from Extremum which is my favorite Die Form song. I do like the original better but it's nice to have a reworking of it. Apart from that I've been quite enjoying Camouflage's "Motif Sky" EP, Delphinium Blue's version of Fleetwood Mac's "Sara" and the occasional song by Onetwo.
