original score was 95. revisiting this and realizing how much more is here than was available to me in the first few listens. they have built a powerful body of work at this point but surely this represents a pinnacle of their aesthetic and a major achievement. each song is so carefully conceived and constructed. after listening to so many unstructured and disjointed albums in the last few weeks, in listening to this again I am blown away by the cohesiveness of their vision here.

the fifth album from CPV represents a step forward in their approach, with more post-punk accents to their core darkwave sound. this album features more coldwave keyboards, less bass than usual, and even some acoustic elements. the songs are more nuanced and explore themes not evident in their more industrial and atmospheric earlier records. songs like "Still" are firmly anchored in their early 80's inspirations but are now extended in genuinely interesting ways.

Supp! I'm doing a challenge at the moment, the "out of my comfort-zone challenge". This is a challenge where I need to listen projects, I normally wouldn't listen too. After some listen I need to state my opinions in a review. If you would suggest an album to me, it would be great! As long as they aren't metal, hip hop or rap! (experimental/abstract hip hop, weird rap is allowed though)

About
100 = perfect
91-99 = levels of greatness
90 = good stuff
80-89 = worthy of an extended listen
70-79 = good song or two
50-69 = thanks but ...
under 50 = no thanks

I rate generously most of the time, unless something is deeply inauthentic, or overtly venal.

Strong preference for small labels and indies, tend not to rate major label and mainstream stuff unless forced upon me, then look out.
