I think this is the best album by The Soft Moon, again it feels like they didn't finish it... there is not enough evenness, but the record is good, I am sure the peak is ahead.

I love myself some goth tinged synth music. Sisters, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, that's my jam. The Soft Moon should be right up my alley, but the songwriting seems like it's synth goth put through an AI meant to generate it at will. It lacks substantial structures or strong melodies or even the throbbing intensity bands like The Sisters of Mercy had in spades. It has a few hits, but entirely too many songs forgotten as soon as they end.

it's the band's most exploratory album. it's still stuck in their classic industrial synth, but it's mostly in the vocal performance that we notice the difference, they sing louder this time, you can notice the voice and the words more. the flaw is mostly in the musical structure and the melodies, with songs that lack the nerve and aggressiveness of yesteryear.
