Europe's leading electronic-industrial magazine, SIDE-LINE, says this about P.O.P. POP  (Rate: (8½)

Content: This album made me rediscover Alien Skin. The electro-pop basis remains pretty similar, but I get the impression the work became more minimal-like and still more original. It sometimes feels a bit like electro-pop has been mixed with elements of IDM. The vocals have something inhibited, which totally matches with the music.

Alien Skin accomplished a true masterpiece. This is a real avant-garde approach in the genre, but it still sounds like a ‘genre’ that has to be explored. The minimal sound treatments reflect an intelligent creation composed by an artist in search of new ideas. The songs are elaborate, revealing cool astral sound treatments, icy sequences, but still great synth lines. Somewhere in between retro influences and pure modernism, this album has something visionary and absolutely refreshing.

Conclusion: If you think that electro-pop is stagnating for too many years, Alien Skin’s new work will be a real relief. This is a great and visionary opus, which also is one of the best productions ever released on ScentAir Records.
