"The seventh album of the band Workshop (comprised of Kai Althoff and Stephan Abry) is an extreme. Workshop's pictures of the outside world aren't postmodern reinterpretations - but then neither are they trying to be realistic in an empirical way. They do not value irony, they are moving freely and are responsive to any musical style. House, Rock, Industrial, TripHop, Easy Listening, Folk - no music can escape its 'Workshop-isation'. Yet, Yog Sothoth is a compendium of sublime contemporary popular music. Even in its sweetest moments, when it tends to kitsch, the music of Workshop remains neutral. Natural phenomena can't be kitschy, because they're natural, they do not depict, they're authentic. In its coarsest moments, this music should be brutal and destructive, but - strangely enough - it remains tender and sympathetic. A marvellous album." (label info)
