Review Summary: Do you think you are ready for a trip down the rabbit hole? This release really deserves of your attention!

Do you think you are ready for a trip down the rabbit hole" Good because like 'You Can't go Back' warns us you'll never gonna be the same again!
I haven't yet listened to their older stuff that aren't rated favourably in here, but this is a real masterpiece!

I felt the need to do a small write up because although the already existent review is really eloquent, I think the musical comparisons are completely off point. Comparing a recording to Massive Attack just because it has electronic direction, is not that different to my grandmother calling Metallica whatever has a distorted guitar.

I have heard 'Arrhythmia Dreaming' before and I didn't pay as much attention, probably for me the song can't operate outside the context of an album, and what an album... It's a real gem! From the opening notes I screamed ecstatic 'Gary Neuman would love that!' the vocals often have that Ian Astbury quality in his Doorsy moments on them and the fact that some of the songs feel like UNKLE could have composed help draw that comparison, while some times they take a more new wave direction. The latest stuff by the Editors came to my mind on several occasion, but comparing is only to give you an image of what the album is about and it's totally unfair for the band to compare them to anything as they are great on their own right!


The album tells us a beautiful story and it's quite consistent, while not monotonous, until 'Little Alice' kicks in and shake things with its Marylin Manson & Beastie Boys ft. Mike Patton vibe to it, without it loosing much of the original direction of the record, and then; the last tracks of the album go on a more 80's synthpop direction... Imagine something like Depeche Mode or Duran Duran maybe!

The sound is spectacular and funnily enough the album is self produced, but in all fairness Iverson is a professional producer as I only found out later on!

Personal favourites are 'That Which Is' and 'Our Time is Now'. I really think this release deserves of your attention!

Personally, I found the previous reviewer's comparisons more apt... oh wait, that was me. As you were then...



In all seriousness nice to see another review for this. I do have a tendency to overdo musical comparisons so I won't argue with the criticism. Pos'd.

Totally man, didn't take it personally at all. And we agree on the rating which is the main thing!
