At last!, I thought, A British Christian electronica band worthy of the name. With the Brits having largely pioneered the musical genre we've left it to those Americans far too long. In the great tradition of electronic music, the band turns out to be one man, holed up in a home studio with a whole stack of equipment (in this case Chris Wickland at Pulse Studios, Fareham). For a couple of tracks the effect of sonic experimentalism is maintained but then Chris/Metamorphic nearly blows the whole thing with "Jump", one of the feeblest attempts at World Wide Message Tribe territory I've ever heard. Clearly the chap can't rap and his attempts at jumping for Jesus merely weakly recycles the genre's cliches. It's when Metamorphic settle for other things, like the '80s sounding "Matrix" that listener tolerance returns. If someone can encourage the lad to discard the cheese and go for the experimental end of Jesus music we could get something good.
