Brendon Moeller has repeatedly spoken out about the EDM genre as being cliched and lifeless, yet Works plays into the exact same formula. From the opening three-track run of “Welcome”, “Spice” and “In Pursuit”, it seems like Works has virtually nowhere to go and is another electronic record that refuses to let go of an insistence to pound a simple idea to a boring drawn-out death. Fortunately, for everyone, Moeller does pull in a few unique sounds and surprising twists at various points throughout Works, yet those efforts always seem fragmented and are buried in an overwhelmingly mediocre release.
