I wasn’t sure if I had to get this album. ORE is good, but their albums are usually quite the same. Also the songs from the band’s Myspace site weren’t too promising: more ORE. I am glad that I got to hear the album afterall though! “Apocalips” is more poppy, more militant, more bombastic and more industrial. More trendy I might say, but these elements that were already part of the sound, but which are now enlarged, surely did good. I particularly like the more industrial/noisy edges in a couple of songs. The sound is still very ORE, but a bit different, as if the band reinvented itself. Better? Hmmm, “Apocalips” is surely one of the better albums, but the best maybe not. Still an album that both ORE fans and lovers of a more military pop sound should get their hands on.
