To Rococo Rot Hotel Morgen
- Words: Martin Turenne
- Label: Domino
The time has come to pull the plug on bands like To Rococo Rot-talented fellows, but prone to flogging dead horses all the same. On Hotel Morgen, the Germans are but shadows of their former selves, passing off lazy electronic squiggles as fully-formed songs. If there's redemption to be found here, it comes in the form of the album-opening "Dahlem," a midtempo schaffel piece which serves only to raise hopes before the debacle to come. Alas, computerized folk never sounded as tired as it does here.
