I really vibe with this haunted tape recording of a 1950s girl group. However, I have the distinct feeling I'm going to die in seven days now.

Post-traumatic noisy dreams.

A great album, for me, it's an album that keeps me awake at night. An album that doesn't evaporate, that stays, that continues to gnaw at my eardrums in the darkness of silence, that haunts my mind. The kind of album that slaps you in the face with the fingerprints that remain visible, a big kick in the gut. Alone, you stay for hours, absent-minded, and looking towards a horizon that no one else can see; your own singularity.

It didn't take me a lot of listening, ... read more

I’ve never heard of Cindy Lee before looking at the amount of hype surrounding “What’s Tonight to Eternity”. But after listening to it, I would love to hear more. This is a beautifully haunting lo-fi record that switches from pretty harmonies to noisy passages throughout while filtering it through your uncle’s old radio. Cindy Lee’s soothing voice contrasts surprisingly well with this dark, morbid themes of this album and I’m expecting this to grow on ... read more

Fallout 4 afterlife waiting room music.
Patrick Flegel of "Women" makes an artistic leap with his "Cindy Lee" project. He gives us 9 tracks of bittersweet and melancholic vibes for a rainy day. I will get my gripes out of the way: the vocals can be nearly impossible to decipher for a good portion of this record and some of the songs meander and drag out just a bit. But in terms of just throwing something on and daydreaming, you won't get much better than this in 2020. The ... read more

What's Tonight To Eternity is the perfect example that something terrifying/morbid can also be a totally exciting and thrilling experience. (And no, I reassure you, I'm a completely normal person)

Musically, this album is stunning and I am conquered by the work of Cindy Lee (a.k.a Patrick Flegel) who has once again succeeded in building with old musicalities (which transpire the garage and psychedelic pop styles of the 60s) something quite real in a totally astonishing way. Going even further ... read more

early early Twin Peaks on VHS pop.

Shame on you if you're sleeping on this.

I know nothing about Cindy Lee or her/his/their past projects. All I know is this album is fucking nuts.

This thing can go from beautiful to shrewd in a matter of seconds. One minute you’re listening to a beautiful harpsichord melody, the next, that same progression is being blown out over a mono keytar. Like, what?

I like it. It just took a little time for me to get...acclimated. It was a lot to take in at once. Lucifer Stand is a masterfully suspenseful song, one of my favorites of ... read more

2020's first stone-cold masterpiece. Cindy Lee has been building up to this. What's Tonight... grabs all that made Act of Tenderness and Malenkost special and streamlines it to a perfect, cohesive experience, even finding the time to experiment quite a bit. Flegel's most adventurous but also most accesible.

I had no idea who Cindy Lee, or Patrick Flegel, was and I had never heard of his previous band, Women, but I was intrigued by the reviews for this album. After the first two tracks I was already sold on it. The sound is unique, very lo-fi, and kind of unsettling, yet strangely soothing at the same time. This is consistent throughout the entire album. Outside of pretty much one track(Speaking from Above), there are very few dull moments.
Overall this is the most unique and interesting album I ... read more

Gave this a full listen to seeing as the whole she-bang is available on YouTube and this album is quite something. It's pop sure, but it's like pop you found recorded on a dusty VHS inside a secluded house you always knew held something sinister. It sounds blown out, beaten down, worn, almost alarmingly lo-fi at times with breathy vocals often buried under roiling walls of sound and clacking percussion strikes. Half the time I have no idea what is even being said without lyrics, but this album ... read more

pros: haunting ambient and dark electronica tunes, to say it's atmospheric would be an understatement; cindy's fleeting vocals that seem transparent in the background, never making them the highlight of the song but rather joining alongside the instruments. it's blissful but also dark, intertwined in a beautiful amalgamation of synth-pop that's reminiscent of early 70s and 80s pop but of course with a darker and experimental tone coalesced with lo-fi textures.
cons: not the most easy listen, it ... read more

This album is very dreamy and psychedelic. The vocals feels distant and everything feels hazy. At times this album is scary. I feel like I'm lost in this twisted world, searching for the beauty. The beauty is definitely there, some of the tracks really showcase that.
However, I didn't adore this album, a lot of it felt too distant for me to connect to it.
Favourite tracks: I Want You To Suffer, Just for Loving You I Pay the Price

Cindy Lee's 'What's Tonight to Eternity' is a jarring listen from start to finish. It features harsh, high-pitched sounds paired with creeping, lo-fi vocals. The end result is an album that stands out from the pack without feeling too forced or contrived.

Favourite tracks: I Want You to Suffer, One Second to Toe the Line, Lucifer Stand, Heavy Metal

what's tonight to eternity is fine. it's dark, almost spooky, mysterious, and probably a whole lot more, but it's also boring, which isn't what i want to say about an album like this. the only parts keeping me hooked were the several slivers of noise throughout, and even those got old after a bit. the only part that really stuck with me was the noise on "i want to suffer," since the rest wasn't that memorable.

FAVORITE TRACK: Lucifer Stand

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Plastic Raincoat

First time listening to this, I didn't get the hype. Noise pop records that have bursted on to the scene as of late like Weatherday's latest release just really haven’t been doing it for me and I thought Lee's album would fall into that category. But after a second listen, I realized how depressing this album actually is. Heavy Metal and Just For Loving You I Pay the Price are the saddest songs on the album expressed ... read more

With their fourth album under the moniker Cindy Lee, the former lead of Women, Patrick Flegel, has created a sound akin to black licorice. WHAT’S TONIGHT TO ETERNITY soundtracks the feeling of the breaking and the reforming of self, confronting life in its existential enormousness so I might live no more tortured than I need be.

Like eternity, like the human condition, WHAT’S TONIGHT TO ETERNITY flows in-and-out of chaos and serenity. Synths beat like an anxious heart, ... read more

Beautiful and haunting harmonies are balanced with fragility beneath a sheet, only to pierce through with monstrous noise, producing an awe-inspiring lo-fi, psychedelic experience.

Really digging the haunted vibe (especially on the opening two tracks and Lucifer Stand, but wishing there was a little more substance behind the ghostly veil.
