Product Description

Merging the musical lexicon of the dance floor with their own dark musings, Nitzer Ebb evokes an occasionally stunning mix of techno and industrial on their second full-length effort. At its best, Belief is a captivating call to surrender the pretensions of free will and control; escape is only possible through dance. The vocals, which alternate between athletic direction and threatening whispers, reveal an internal dialogue at work that both bullies and stalks the listener. Mute. 2001. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Melodic Raving Lunatic Music! April 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is probably Nitzer Ebb's most accessible cd, especially to first-time listeners of the group. The music is a little more melodic in this follow-up to 87's That Total Age, yet still retaining the aggressive tone that flowed heavily in their debut.

IMHO, this may as well have been Ebb's first real debut. Seemingly, their later material elaborated on what they have in Belief. They have form, focus, their own spin in the so-called
"industrial" genre. Right at the onset of the genre when Belief was first released, Ebb could not be mistaken as being one of the very first bands to kickstart the genre. This is evident in "Control I'm Here" and "For Fun", two of their best songs in their entire catalog. Maddening techno sounds, lunatic chants, sensual overtones - how could they miss.
There are times when it feels like the band has managed to
unwillingly make actual radio-friendly songs (standard start to finish, average time length of 4 min.) in cuts like "Hearts and Minds", "Captivate", and "Drive". Driving, dancing rhythms come into play along with aggressive lyrics. Perhaps back then compared to Age, Belief could have been as close to pop/rock- driven as Nitzer Ebb could have pulled off. But in the 21st Century now, Belief is definitely not pop or rock. But I would say that it rocks with attitude and guts. Raving lunatic singer Douglas MaCarthy just has that voice to get away with losing his marbles. It just fits. And for an electronic-heavy/experimental band, the band even has their own experimental track in "TWA".
Belief is where Nitzer Ebb were beginning to become a more-solid electronic outfit. Also, one wouldn't be far off to think the group was beginning to be taken seriously as a band.
And did I forget to mention you can dance to this cd as well.
Even "Control I'm Here" on repeat mode doesn't seem like a bad idea.

5. TWA
6. BLOOD MONEY

8. DRIVE
9. WITHOUT BELIEF
This is well worth the small price you have to pay, considering it's older & short... but still doesn't feel outdated. I had gotten 'That Total Age' album before this, & hadn't really gotten into it as much as I had this one. I also recently got 'Ebbhead', & it's interesting to hear the comparison from album to album. One good thing is that Nitzer Ebb hardly sounds similar from one album to another. To me, they seemed to have gone in a similar direction that Ministry had gone...from more dancy to more industrial to more of a rock edge on Ebbhead. But if you like all those kinds of genres, then you won't mind one bit. This album definitely has a dance feel, & esp. while I'm driving around, I can't help but tap my foot or move around a little. One thing I like better on this album than the previous is they're a little more melodic, but the beats are still just as catchy. I had seen & taped the video (yes, they have a video, can you believe?) to "Control I'm Here" & it was instantly a catchy favorite, & I still say that's the best song on here. Pretty much, if you like one, you'll like them all....so enjoy!!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Nitzer Ebb album March 7 2001
By ainchan
Format:Audio CD
Nitzer Ebb used to be my fave group when I was just a wee little thing. Now, well. . .they haven't exactly stood the test of time. I think their albums got progressively worse as time went on. But this was the first album of theirs that I played into the ground. There's something cold and austere about it that intrigues me. If Ministry is in a black room, then Nitzer Ebb is in a white room where a white jet's flying past the window and everyone is moving in slow motion. They use this one sound I like to call "dog piano" (that was its name on an old synthesizer I saw once). You hear it on some Simple Minds albums as well. I like that Dog Piano sound!

5.0 out of 5 stars My personal favorite Nitzer Ebb release Oct. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just love "That Total Age", "Showtime" and "Belief" but if I had to pick one of them as my favorite it would be "Belief". From start to finish this CD is great, some of Nitzer Ebb's best dance stuff can be found on this CD. I noticed another reviewer saying it was the golden age of EBM, screw that it was the golden age of Industrial!
Great club songs include:
Shame
Control I'm Here
Captivate
Hearts & Minds
A must have CD for any DJ, Nitzer Ebb fan, hell any industrial fan has to own this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Daddy of Industrial Sept. 6 2000
Format:Audio CD
First of all, the song list is totally jacked, and I hope Amazon fixes it soon. NE is such a rarity in that their music gives us a serious edge without any of Trent's pretentious baggage or the club scene's usual (brainless) excess. Doug McArthur's voice lurks between sensual lover and raving lunatic, with the lyrics allowing us to reflect but not relax. This album, made years before that annoying marketing label "Industrial" came about, proves NE was way ahead of their time.
