3 stars Ok, this is the long waited album for Nekropsi, everybody thought they disbanded but after 10 years they came with a new album called Sayı 2:10 Yılda Bir (Number 2 : One in Every Ten Years) The title is a mock on the subject that it took 10 years for them to release another album. The first album was the most experimental Turkish record I've heard and it was totally unique and innovative. It's still an ageless record, so the fans were really curious what Nekropsi would bring onto our plate this time. The album is very different in style than the last album, which is good because this means the band is reinventing themselves. The electronic elements are persistent on the album, Die Neue Papa is an example to this. It sounds like German electronica, like Kraftwerk, I wouldn't expect such a track from Nekropsi so this was a sort of surprise. The track Yok Var contains female vocals and sometimes it's similar to Baba Zula, it surely is a homage to Traditional Turkish Music. The track Bağlama, uses the Turkish instrument Bağlama in a way I have never heard before. The tracks Erciyes Şokta and Baba are solid prog metal tunes sometimes sounding like Tool. Now we come to the real gem in the album: Ebo. I think this is the best track on the record, very unqiue, strange, moody, King Crimson like, contains female vocals again, Kerem Tüzün's bass performance on this track is amazing. The production quality is pretty good when compared to other Turkish records, every instrument is perfectly audible and doesn't dominate the other. The main instruments are guitar,bass and drums, but the band sometimes use vocals, sometimes female led improvisational Great Gig in The Sky type vocals, sometimes whispers and talks over the music. The performance of the band members are really good, mostly I think the inclusion of Kerem into the group is a perfect choice. Despite these qualities the album cannot compete with the first one and it's not easy to get into. Sometimes the songs become boring and we search for the experimentalism on the first record, but who knows maybe my ideas on the album will change as i listen to it. 3 stars for this record, keep up the good work guys!
