Upwards At 66N

Album Reviews
They make music with echoes of a Teutonic influence; they call themselves Tank. No surprise then, that this group are actually French. This 1999 album pulsates and throbs with metronomic efficiency and precision. 'Kino Art' uses an intense groove that is hard to shake off. Its twitchy drumming and organ swell seems to last forever and that's the problem throughout 'Upwards At 66N'; an initially exciting loop soon becomes a drone with little sign of deviation or progression, so much so that 'Gunnar Reverse' goes backwards in more ways than one. The best two tracks are saved until the end; 'C'est Un Joli Matin/Vestur' has a pleasant bluesy feel but 'Nord : Sd' is a metallic tour-de-force that builds into an epic. If only they could have started the album this way and taken a few more risks this could have been a much better effort.
