Look, Converter/Sonar may be dancy, but they are also very noisy, and abrasive, yes they are industrial, its quite simple, I am actually quite a fan of both, yes yes, Some of Converter gets a little lame, but all and all they are quite nice. Structure wise, Converter is pretty advanced, for example, track 3 on Blast furnace, has almost the perfect progression for industrial music. It starts out dark, bare and sparatic, then it builds up with little explosions of noise, then it organises into powerful assaults of industrial sounds, abrasive noise, and short dark melodies, as well as a little rhythem to keep it in line, and it ends with an explosive climax. I think Converter lacks in the sound department, he needs too manipulate sounds a little better. But most of Converter is'nt really dancy.
Oh I completly agree with you Ike, Raison does get very boring, the monophonic way too low pith choir melodies get really really old, really really fast, and the same metalic sounds over and over again. One would think he uses the same patch for all of his songs, and just changes the melody a little bit and then Scrapes some metal and reverbs it and throws it in behing the melody, ON EVERY SONG.
