The Unwanted Sounds Of , 5/10
Satisfact , 6/10
The Third Meeting At The Third Counter , 5/10

Satisfact is Seattle-area band who sound harks back to the new wave and to dark punk. Led by guitarist and vocalist Matthew Steinke (who also plays in Mocket) and keyboardist Chad States, Satisfact have coined a new genre by reviving the ghosts of Joy Division and Cure .

States' synthesizer is still an embryo on The Unwanted Sounds Of (Up, 1996), which boasts the driving Unswitched.

It's Satisfact (K, 1997) that dispels all amateurism and establishes States as a major electronic arranger. The spooky Misprint and How Things Work are still loaded with references to dark punk, but the instrumentals shine of a wicked light (Building Tall Buildings, Four Sided and Moods For Moderns).

The Third Meeting At The Third Counter (K, 1999) is not as creative and not as balanced. The anthemic Locate is the stand-out track, but it is not representative of the rest of the collection.
