In my opinion, The Shape is tied for the best album they've made with Near Dark.

Some of the tracks they later released on B-Sides: Volume 1 really feel like they would've fit in near perfectly on this album and only improved it but were axed for no reason, so in that regard I'm a bit reluctant to say the album is actually number one.

Favorite Track(s): Her Ghost / Screams and Whispers / Horizon / Diabolic / Watching You

Least Favorite Track(s): Quietly Into the Night


Friend of mine recommended me this album back in November. Didn’t take the time to listen to it until now for some reason. Anyways, it was an experience and a half. Sounds like a deadmau5/Kavinsky collaboration with guitars. Good shit. Thank you Saz, hope you’re doing well.

Fav track: Diabolic

Least fav track: Quietly Into The Night
