Los Angeles synth-pop outfit's newest effort is a minimal synth wet dream with tracks immaculately fit for a night at the night club or just drunk dancing alone in your room, all lights out. The synths are prominently front-and-center with relentlessly pleasurable tracks overflowing with positive vitality and melodic atmosphere. I could never think of any synth-oriented record that I highly enjoyed than this one. Feels is a one feel-good track that is wholeheartedly euphoric.

Toujours un petit goût de Manchester pour Black Marble dont le nouvel album, plus léger et plus pop se laisse apprivoiser en quelques écoutes.

Not sure why this has such bad reviews. Black Marble aren't pushing the envelope or doing anything out of the ordinary in this latest LP but this is full of solid dancy synth pop songs. The arrangement of the instruments are great and I find the monotonous vocals quite catchy in most songs.

It's a bit boring and very dissapoiting because it just doesn't fly.
