Drop-O-Rama: Nothing Changes

France’s Drop-O-Rama makes noisy, progressive and eclectic techno-metal -- think Savatage kicking Rammstein’s ass, stealing Billy Idol’s riffs and pretending to be Mötley Crüe. Nothing Changes, the quintet’s debut, boasts plenty of catchy tunes that also happen to initially be rather annoying. Part of the problem could be vocalist Olivier Campana, who can best be likened to a bizzare hybrid of the late Blind Melon singer Shannon Hoon and Mr. Idol himself. Plus, the album, at 73 minutes, is too damn long. If those points don’t scare you, congratulations. You may very well inhale some musical breaths of fresh air with this one. Multiple spins of Nothing Changes consistently reveal changes galore, providing new aural landscapes to explore and making this an album that deserves at least some of your valuable time…

Drop-O-Rama: Nothing Changes
Posted by Jay Johnson on 2005-10-08 14:48:23
My Score:

I must say I was surprised by this album which sounds very different. I've just found out that this band Drop-O-Rama has actually released a second album last year .
I've bought it on the net and this is a very good opus.
"SUPERLOVE" is shorter and the production doesn't sound "thin".

Great stuff!
