Walter Meego : Voyager

6.9 Almost Gold

  “Not a dude, but a duo”, Chicagoans Sconza & Yorck put themselves squarely on today’s ever-widening disco-dance map, alongside such luminaries as former tour-mates VHS or Beta (QRO spotlight on).  While Voyager doesn’t reinvent the electronica wheel, it certainly spins.

Walter Meego start their record with the sexy-sly high technotronica of “Forever”.  The band generally mixes it up in the higher range of things; unfortunately, sometimes too high, like with the cute “Girls” or the stripped finisher “In My Dreams”.  But other tracks hit the right note, like “Forever”, “Baby Please”, or the fuzzy sway of “Lost”.

However, Voyager is strongest when more focused on the beats, like with back-to-back “More Than I Can Say” and “Tomorrowland”.  That’s definitely the case with top number “Letting Go”.  Perhaps the only exception is the darker “Keyhole”, whose more ominous, more disturbing ways make it a stand out.
