Well... if you'll get over the horrific idolizing cover (at least they saved the sunglasses for the inside this time) of the new and third Yahel album, and do not oppose a very clubby oriented music, you'll find some surprises inside even if you're far from being a Yahel fan. It happened to me.
Yahel, while still leaving us here traces of the music that is so much identified with him, characterized by colossal build-ups and exploding hormone-filled melodies, shows he can do a lot more. The first sign for that was found in his Evolution in Israliens 3, a progressive Ticonish track, more of these you can find here starting with the groovy and more in-yer-face opener- Come Inside, through the strong Step By Step (T4), and finishing with the powerful tribal and almost dark Heart Ache (T6).
A high point of the album is the collaboration with Infected Mushroom- Electro Panic (T2)- a totally electroish track that causes chaos on every dancefloor, be it in the woods or in a flashy club. Massive, and nothing you would expect from this combination.
As I said, traces of the old Yahel are still here with the exploding full on Avalanche (T3) with some added Goa touches and a nice nostalgic feel. Scratch does the same, but in a more clubby atmosphere, and with much less success. And Bomb Creator (T9) takes it all the way to the very emotional melodic realms, though it is a short one. When it's 3 out of 9, it's can even be nice to have them here, though I'd drop Scratch out. In between you also have the slow, groovy, percussion-based, and almost funky Crystal Blue (T8), and Unusual (T7), a more clubby technoish tune with nice groove and a light touching melodic lines. And you also get a bonus multimedia track for your computer with a lot of Yahel party close-ups, a lot of half naked good looking girls, a censored baby, and a splashing happy end- watching it was quite an embarrassing experience for me, I must say. I'll leave this CD for the stereo.
