Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2003-06-24 
Electroclash, strange. Dirty electropop with industrial funk flavor. Great stuff with funky elements, male duo w/ hip hop vocal delivery often. Best songs aren’t FCC friendly though, unfortunately, as this could easily be described as “youth positive inspirational music with a message”. Honestly, these songs deliver messages like “you aren’t alone” and “its okay to be a fucked up kid” without some cheeseball gloss. Great stuff that needs to be heard.

1) FCCs, no no no
2) electroclash feel, slow beat w/ hip hop voc delivery
3) FCC upbeat funky industrial feel
4) punk electroclash
5) FCCs
6) slower gothy rap FCC
7) new wave feel
8) excellent dark approach
9) silly sorta, more low fi, Suicide feel somehow in vocs
10) FCCs toward end, too bad as this is epic anthem to kids these days, worth cleaning up really
