State Of The Nation – Departed (Remixes)


Hmmm. I wonder who this lot will sound like given their name? Well that’s a surprise. They sound like Slayer. Actually that’s a big lie. Of course they sound like a New Order lite right down to the bass lines. Mind you to be fair they also sound like The Pet Shop Boys on some of the gulp, seven remixes.

Given that both those aforementioned bands have released two excellent albums these past few months you have to wonder if there is any need for the likes of State Of The Nation. Well maybe. The original edit of the track is a great and enjoyable example of a 1980’s influenced synth pop song even though a fair few of the remixes are a total waste of time. The other track Robben Island provides clues on how they may develop further. Skip the remixes and just buy the original.
