SYNTHPOP.NET reviews ROCKET: A Tribute to Dead or Alive CD and
gives it 4 STARS! This highly anticpated CD is NOW OUT and
features 16 different electro/synthpop artists, including Empire State Human, Tristraum, Spray, Ganymede and 'newcomer' Andromeda
Rising. If you order directly though you get access to bonus tracks
not featured on the CD.

This tribute to Dead Or Alive was released as the first release
from Section 44 records, coordinated and executive produced by Empire State Human.......Overall, this is a extremely well put together and compiled tribute. While not all the tracks worked as well as I
might have hoped, overall it presents a very solid and respectful tribute. Well worth your time and money, and very recommended!
