    My favorite album of 2013 is ...

    NRSB-11's Commodified


    The people behind NRSB-11 are Drexciya's Gerald Donald and Sherard Ingram aka DJ Stingray. Legendary talent in the field of electronic music and they delivered. Themes of ever growing corporate power and control, slave like consumerism, industrial espionage and bioethics. Dark, moody, cyberpunk, dystopian ... the perfect soundtrack for cruising through the night, replicant hunting or fabricant freeing.

    Thesis, the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer dubbed with NRSB-11's music, perfect match

    Now that 2014 is almost over, and I've had that many more months to listen to all the great albums from 2013, my favorite is definitely Volcano Choir's repave. And isn't that the best way to determine these types of things (wait for time to pass and see what's still left)?

    NOTE this choice different from the one I made at end of 2013.
