Apart from the preoccupation with string patches and the Claus Larsen style vocal effects, this debut album by Controlled Fusion isn't that bad. Ignoring the obvious Leaetherstrip comparisons and going for the heart of the music one can sense the artist struggling for his own personal style. One thing he has an excellent grasp of, is the ability to write a beginning and ending of a track. It seems many artists are made or lost simply by their ability to properly end and close a track and Steffen Schurke has finely honed that skill better than any debut artist I've heard. However he does need to work a bit on distinguishing one track from the next as many of the tracks on this album sound too similar to one another. Given time and the skill set he has already acquire, I feel confident that his musical abilities will grow and find a niche.
