yooohaaa!! this is MR.MOUSE handling and
torturing the keys of that old 'n rusty 
c64! what have i got for you this issue?
a lot!!! a whole lot!! yeah, really!    
let's give you an impression:           
          music reviewed from:          
           YOUNG ORGASM/fluid           
            THE SYNDROM/tia             
      RAGMAN & LEECH/comic pirates      
how's that for a change eh?             
before i start a message to YAZOO:      
what is your problem son? we don't do   
you any harm! why should you be arrogant
and rather see our mag dead? why don't  
you mind YOUR business and let us mind  
our business, ok! we like doing this!   
well, here it goes:                     
handle: CYBERDYNE                       
name  : ralf e.                         
group : trinomic                        
age   : ?                               
sex   : male                            
this dude send me some techno-ish wares 
on a tape and a c64 tune. that tune is  
added to addybook.                      
first let me talk about the tape he send
it contained 8 songs done by him and i  
believe done on amiga.                  
4 slowish songs: "silence", "fantasia", 
"lightshadow" and "just for justice".   
4 speedy techno/house songs:"spacerace" 
"d.o.p.e.", "trance" and "bpm".         
so what about them?                     
"lightshadow" and "just fo justice" are 
in my opinion the best of the slowish   
songs. why, you'll ask.                 
well, the melodies are nice to listen to
while they are accompanied by good bass-
lines and good drums.                   
it's of course impossible for me to show
you the music as it's on tape or amiga-ä
disk! but i shall continue.             
the techno songs are great! as mr.ammo  
said worth listening to! in my opinion  
they are very well structured and       
contain nice sounds. the moment i       
write this i listen to "d.o.p.e.": it's 
got a nice swing to it!                 
"trance" is a cool song , with some nice
digitised female pornographic speech    
probably ripped right out of a top shelf
but the best one to dance on is         
good basslines, good beat, good effects 
and well structured.                    
that is what you'll could get if you    
contact cyberdyne or me!

NOW on with the C64 zax by him.         
you cannot compare this too the music   
mentioned above, so i will not either.  
i can only say, that it is nicely done. 
it has got an okay solo plus an okay    
basspattern which doesn't change.       
the variety in the song is being done   
by the solo.                            
check it out!                           
it is good for intro's but perhaps for  
a demo part too!                        
the review ends here.

this guy's from norway and uses the     
future composer version 4.1.            
because he uses that editor you will    
recognize it inmediately: the sounds    
are alike.                              
now let's talk about his music, the one 
that is added to addybook.              
it has got a nice intro, but when the   
drums start, the beat is still not      
there: the drums are to weak. after the 
intro there is a nice basspattern and   
there we have it: a beat! but now there 
is a solo that could have been done     
much better. the background is good, but
the solo is mediocre. the drums do not  
change, it is one pattern.              
there could have been more effects in   
the zax i suppose. but it is a good zax 
for playing in the background of a game.
nice intro zax as well.                 
so in all the solo can be improved, the 
rhythmetic structure and the effects.   
but i know it is possible.

sooo, this is the third review this     
month and we're still going great!      
of niet, holland freaks!                
dacht 't wel!                           
hhhmm, if you've read addybook regularly
you probably must have heard some tunes 
done by the syndrom.                    
what does that mean? well, that means   
that blaze-headquarters thinks he is    
good. i shall prove them right or wrong.
the songs he sent me come from his first
collection. he made a second one, but i 
didn't get it from him yet.             
the song i ad to this issue is the one  
i'm going to talk about.                
i think that the syndrom knows what he  
is doing. he produces quality solo's    
plus lots of variety in his songs.      
as you can hear for yourself, the song  
is varied with a nice rhythmetic change.
what about the basssound-colour? well,  
it is nice and it fits to the song, but 
i heard in other songs not much variety 
in basssounds. this might be due to the 
fact that i've only got his first       
collection and his second might be some-
thing completely different, but let's   
say we talk about his first collection  
here. i do admit that it isn't all that 
bad(do you fuckin' know what IS bad?    
that this stupid 128 fuckin'            
powercrashed when i had just finished   
this review and started the next one!!! 
that IS and i repeat IS baaaddd!!!!     
and you know what? IT WAS MY OWN FAULT!!
but hey, you probably don't care!)      
but it does show that the basssounds are
alike. and not only the basssound, the  
chordsounds too. i think that is the    
main thing that is too bad about this   
music. and what about the solo?         
the solo is very melodic and you'll     
remember it when you listen to it       
regularly, just like jeroen tel, hubbard
and galway.                             
the rhythm is well done and there is a  
nice change.                            
so blaze h.q. were right. he is good.

these guys have been at the composing   
for, as they claim, 2 months.           
they think they are not bad. well,      
i'll see about that. anyway, they're    
nice chaps. let us talk about the song  
added to this disky!                    
i think that the song is very           
atmospheric and it is nice to listen to.
there is not a great solo nor overall   
variety in the chords, but it's         
atmosphere does it. perfect for a puzzle
game, a magchapter or long scrolltext.  
they sent me a whole lotta zax to check 
out and i noticed immediately that the  
basslines are alike! they go:           
c (2x), gis, ais. and only the rhythm   
changes. yes, they sometimes put in an  
extra g, but that's it!                 
so there is not much variety in chords, 
not only in the song itself, but in the 
whole collection of songs.              
yes, nice techno mix, but nothing       
really different.                       
so the atmosphere is their strong side  
and the rest will improve in due time!  
i'll quit this review and give them     
some grades:
