„Hail to the Employee“ is the fourth album of Andreas Gross in four years and he still invents his own musical universe. Miles away from any trend in the pop, wave or gothic scene the songs from this album are fragile wave-pop compositions with an individual magic touch. And this magic keeps growing stronger when you hear Tabita Anders’ unique voice. Musically “Hail To The Employee” has gone through a lot of progress compared to its predecessors but Andreas Gross still is balancing between heavy melancholic and dark gothic-like styles. Sometimes his music is even com-pared to early Clan Of Xymox, This Mortal Coil or Breeders kind of sound. And within all this progression the band still keeps sounding fresh and pleasantly innocent, without going too much into the usual wave-gothic clichees. On “Hail To The Employee” there are also some cover versions –like there were on the other albums. One of them is the excellent Birthday Massacre song „To Die For“, the other one is a remix of „Under The Line“ from Akanoid. Since the songs have a very strong visual potential, which can be seen
in a lot of self-produced videos the band did for this and the previous albums. For this album they already shot three videos for the songs „Hopeful Despair“, „Bloodkiss“ and „Malfunction“ and can they be seen on MySpace and YouTube. They are planning to release a special DVD-Edition with all their video clips. “Hail To The Employee” is also available in a white VINYL collectors edition.
