Album Review

Reviewed 2005-10-12
Fem vocals, guitar based goth/pop. Drum machine and simple synths gives it a late-80s post-punk feel.

+1.mid-uptempo, a little dreamy, shoegazer fuzz, do-do-doo backup vocals
+2.voice here reminds me of old His Name us Alive, music is amateur industrial goth. Bridge lyrics=thoughts at tawdry pickup.
3.lyrical, melodic, pleasant plaintive love song, but lacking depth
+4.mid-slow, mostly sequenced synths but echo guitar starts in 2nd half.
5.She’s reminding me of Sinead O’Conner. Gets loud in 2nd half.
+6.goth mid-fast tempo, echoy vocals, lots of cymbals, distant guitars
+7.nice slow beat
8.mid-slow and no percussion, pretty bell and strings
+9.midtempo, clearer production (less reverb to muddy the simple vocals) good descending chord pattern.
+10. Spoken verse, sung chorus. 1-bit distortion as part of the beat, guitar solo
11.slow, pretty, somewhat sparse. starts dub.
+12 catchy beat- the easiest track to dance to on this CD
13.quiet noises & piano intro, rain in first two minutes, then chill downbeat song.
