Um, Slightly Downbeat

Musically intricate, powerful vocals, but so very, very dark. Not in the late Soft Cell sense, where there was a sense of grandeur about the songs of self-destruction, but just a mixture of depression, anger and regret. Honestly, I can’t listen to the whole thing right through in a single sitting, it’s frankly depressing listening. Strong emotive vocals and nicely textured synths and guitar work, but so gloomy. Makes “Commuter 23” sound like bouncy accessible pop.

Next time around I’m going to listen beforehand - life’s depressing enough without inflicting extra bonus helpings of misery on myself for entertainment.
