Dreadzone - Once Upon A Time mp3 album
Once Upon A Time (CD, Album). Last Call Records, Wagram Music. Too bad, but for me Dreadzone kind of lost it on this album. It's too formulaic, too digital and - never thought I would have to say this about the Dreadzone that gave us 360°, Performance, Second Light and Biological Radio - a tad uninspired. Potentially interesting ideas just never seem able to escape or grow out their place of birth : a dead sounding, repetitive and mechanical computer

Once upon a time" is a stock phrase used to introduce a narrative of past events, typically in fairy tales and folk tales. These stories often then end with "and they all lived happily ever after", or, originally, "happily until their deaths". The phrase is particularly common in fairy tales for younger children, where it is almost always the opening line of a tale
The fact that this is very hard to find in any mainstream record shop shows the decline in their commercial appeal, but I was expecting great things nonetheless. However, my over-riding feeling of this album is mild disappointment. Roughly half the songs sound live Sound (spot the pun), some of the others have a more contemporary rap/r&b feel and one even sounds mildly Jamaican dancehall! This is the problem with this CD for me. Are Dreadzone trying to sound more 'urban' (how I hate that word), or are they the Dreadzone.
