Scanner - Scantropolis - reviewed by: EC
In fact I would venture to say this is one of the worst pieces of trash my CD player has been exposed to in recent months. Of the album's ten tracks, only two of them are even remotely heavy metal. The first being the glorious "Sister Mary" and the other being a throwback to early Scanner, "Hallowed Be My Name". This release is just a pop, industrial, anti-metal nightmare. I can't believe that this is the same band that put out "Ball Of The Damned" five years ago! Wow, its just amazing how a band can change that much in that length of time. The lineup is almost completely different now, with guitar player Axel Julius and Marc Simon being the only members left from past glory.
I suggest all Scanner fans, and metal fans in general, to stay clear of this record. If you like teeny-bopper pop albums like Michelle Branch or Avril Lavigne, please pick this one up and tell all your friends about it. I really hope that Scanner can get their ass back on track and put this album far behind them. Scantropolis.....for God's sake give me a fucking break!
