"No sure if alter ego is even the right term here. It's not like she's superman or eminem/slim shady, where on minute she's janelle monae and the next she's condo mayweather. Slim and Em, and Clark and superman live in the same universe with one another. In the universe of this album, she's always cindi mayweather. "

...so like beyonce with sasha fierce. yeah seems pretty groundbreaking

I never said that it was groundbreaking or original. In fact, the concept did draw me in, however, because it immediately reminded me of deltron 3030, which I'm frankly very surprised people other than me have yet to acknowledge that.

what an enjoyable read! you really pin point everything very well. just as soon as I was going to mention the interludes, you dismiss them so convincingly (although I deleted them from my track listing so it'll get through to the hits quicker). really nice work!

I think there's so much music here that it's almost impossible to embrace completely with its ridiculous run time at first listen, and I think this guy ^^^ is bullshit.

ArchAndroid was amazing. This is a step up in my opinion, it's somehow even better. Suite IV: Electric Overture, Ghetto Woman and Sally Ride are standouts on an overall amazing album.

I've seen that before. maybe they mean "elements" of pop punk but as a once hardcore pop punk fan, I can say that I heard no pop punk on here.

Hmm

It's still odd, I guess I'll have to check out for myself but will take your word for it

Would be interest if it not just happened but was also good, think that'd pretty much confirm she can
do no wrong.

I haven't even heard this yet but I'm already wondering where she'll branch out next

I read somewhere that Dance Apocalyptic is this claimed pop punk song. It definitely has more of a 60's girl group feel though.
I would say this is just a case of poor phrasing. The song is pop, but has some of the most aggressively sung vocals of the album, so maybe that somehow translated into punk?

^ Thanks a ton, bud. It took me unusually long to put this review together.

Cool! Is Q.U.E.E.N. a gender sensitive cover version of Satricon?
Other than that i dig this cover artwork hard.. not sure if the music could be mine... does it have funky guitar licks like chic?
