Big Top Karma - _Contagious Bacteria_
(Independent, 1997)
by: Adrian Bromley (4 out of 10)
One guy, fusing together industrial beats, keyboards, and metal riffs? Sound familiar? Hasn't this been done before? Anyway... BTK is a one-man show led by sole creator Mr. Gib from Vancouver. Heavily doused in industrial/metal cliche sounds and ideas, BTK steamrolls through six angst-ridden numbers about love, truth, and understanding. Again, hasn't this been done before? I hear a lot of Ministry and NIN (go figure!) in this project - too much maybe? I must admit, the numbers are catchy and well-written, but there is just something about rehashed music styles that doesn't turn my crank. Sorry Mr. Gib.
