I can't say if i'm able or not to appreciate Rocktone Rebel's 8bit-like music, diy electroclash, dissonant indietronic, composed with casiotone, gameboy and other (not so) unusual digital hardware. I mean, maybe the music is even good in its minimal hardcore peak, - it features some interesting patterns, even if not yet memorable or with any particular sparkle, but, principally, i have a problem with the vocals, eaten by distortion, deliberately nearly incomprehensible, probably hidden into production because of faint engilsh accent, or just because Rocktone Rebel is not a real singer but a guy having his fun with technology, ready to share it with You. This ep still looks to me as a demo, i think He should refine tunes and vocal parts, and - next step - make the difference. De gustibus.
Non saprei dire se sono capace di apprezzare o no la musica ad 8bit del genovese Rocktone Rebel, - diy electroclash, indietronic dissonante, composto con casiotone, gameboy ed altre (non cosí) inusuali hardware digitali. Ovvero, forse la musica è anche buona nel suo picco hardcore del minimale, - e figura dei pattern interessanti, anche se non ancora memorabili o con una qualsiasi scintilla, - ma principalmente, io ho un problema con il suo cantato, mangiato dalla disorsione, deliberatamente pressappoco indistinguibile, probabilmente nascosto nella produzione per qualche deficenza da inglese debole o magari giusto perchè Rocktone Rebel non è un cantante, ma un ragazzo che si giostra bene con la tecnologia, pronto a condividerla con Voi. Questo ep a me sembra ancora un demo, penso dovrebbe raffinare le melodie e le parti vocali, e - passo successivo - fare la differenza. De gustibus.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
