"This first album by Seven Red Seven places them strongly in the category of American clones of Depeche Mode's synthpop sound. If you like the first albums by Cause & Effect ("Another Minute" or the self-titled album), Red Flag's "Naive Art", or Anything Box's "Peace", you will love this album. In terms of sound, Seven Red Seven here is closest perhaps to early Cause & Effect, particularly in vocals. Like all the groups mentioned, the vocalist strives to emulate the British-inflected, deep, resonant style of vocal delivery associated with Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan."

"Seven Red Seven went down as the most under-rated and under appreciated synth group in America. From their 1994 release, this excellent cover of the popular Stevie Wonder hit has four great remixes and every one is worth listening to repeatedly! Look for the full album, "Bass State Coma" (later re-released I believe as "Liquid") to hear the absolute height of synth-pop perfection."

"I wish I could go note by note and describe how this album redeems itself with each passing second. I wish I could take the sound and cohesion of this album and shove it under every other artists nose and say, "See! That's how it's done!"
Okay, so maybe not that great, but certainly worthy of an excellent rating. While it's a shame this re-release left out "Bass State Coma", the rest of the album is intact and certainly can carry it's own weight, thank you very much. The remake of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" is well renderred and classic Seven Red Seven. My personal favorite from this release may be "Listen to the Ground"; a fast, hard-pumping song that makes you want to scream along with the lyrics... in the car at least :)
This album certainly stands in the "Buy It" column of my list. If you enjoyed their first album, if you enjoy Cause & Effect, or Anything Box, or just good music, get it."
"This is essentially a re-release of 1994's Bass State Coma minus a few tracks. I totally disagree with last reviewers comments that 7R7 is immitating anyone.... while there is some similarity... the tracks off this album are already 5 years old and if you're looking for a classic, this one has some good stuff on it. The only downside is they left off the truly excellent track Bass State Coma. All-in-all, worth getting."
"Not a bad release from this electronic/ebm outfit. Very much in the style of sister machine gun, die warzau or very early front 242 (but alas not on par with any of the above.) Does have some good tracks, standouts being: "Burn", "Superstition" and a very Kraftwerk-ish "Electrique". The artwork and "7-boy" logo is very stylish in the anime school of design. Look forward to future releases when this group matures and establishes their own style!"
Thank you very much Tecno71!!
