Voltaire is back! His second album is quite different from the first one(the Devil's Bris) in the sense that it's more "dancy", the rythms are happier and it's a little less "dark" than Bris. However, what makes the charm of the first one is still present in this release: the gipsy-like violins, state-of-the-art drumming still accompain every track, and Voltaire's sarcastic lyrics (Dead Girls, God thinks,...) get to the point. I really enjoy this CD as it's a welcome and fresh change from the linear, "marketing-people music" the radios sink us into. Gothic for everyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars I cried, I laughed, I played it again! 3 Aug 2000
By Jenna Riane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After I heard the first album 2 years ago I thought it impossible that a second album would grab me and keep my attention the way 'The Devil's Bris' had. I am happy to say, I was wrong.
'Almost Human' is a delightfully dark yet comical look at life. It puts a fresh spin on things, from the loss of love in 'Feathery Wings' to religion in 'God Thinks' to necrophelia in 'Dead Girls.' With lines like, 'Far be it for I/To leave all this beauty behind/I will stay to watch you wither away/And with any luck/You may be hit by a truck'(The Last Word), you realize that this is no ordinary album. The music is an eclectic combination of spirited guitar, romantic cello, eerie violin, and thundering drums. I especially liked the use of harmonic vocals on this album. It gave a fuller, more finished sound that I thought was lacking on 'The Devil's Bris'.
If you are tired of the usual stylings of another Christian Death cover band, give Voltaire a try. His twisted humor and view of the world set to original music will keep you laughing and thinking as you hit PLAY again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep it up! 1 Feb 2001
By C. M. Sharrah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After being a firm advocate of THE DEVIL'S BRIS as having great lyrics, atmosphere, and conceptual meaning -- I somehow left out the possibility that he would return to do ANOTHER! This is definately a must-buy for anyone out there who is a VOLTAIRE fan, or even if you are just looking for something different. This isn't your typical whiny goth music, I should know b/c I cannot stand most goth music -- but there's something unique about Voltaire that makes me listen to his album(s) over and over! Just be careful the first time you listen to it, I was playing in my car driving down Interstate 10 when "God Thinks" came on and I was laughing so hard I almost side-swiped a minivan! =) =)
Excellent Work, V!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarcastic Satirical Fun 26 July 2005
By Natasha Quill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The reason why I bought this cd was to prepare for Voltaire in concert about a month after I purchased the cd. And the only way I was able to trust it enough was through other customer reviews. Let me just say that it is fantastic if you like satirical lyrics and ballad like tunes, especially if you like the use of classical instruments. I feel as if I've been cast into some medieval concert hall. Great fun, especially if you are a fan of dark humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars So goths DO have a sense of humor 14 Jun 2003
By "dustinasche" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm glad to see I'm not the only goth out there with a sense of humor. All of this man's albums range from silly to sincere with wit and well orchestrated melodies. Songs like God Thinks and Feathery Wings show a more provocative side of Voltaire, while tunes like Headless Waltz prove that he is still hilarious and fun to dance to. This is my favorite of his three and a half albums (Banned On Vulcan maxi-EP also available) and I'm lucky enough to boast a signed copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughter at the Art Museum... 31 Dec 2000
By "nekovamp" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Picture (if you will) your standard Fine Art Museum dropped in the middle of a typical large center of population. There is an art exhibit that includes many works by John Singer Sargent and you weave your way through the crowd of art stiffs and critics to view the amazing painter's work. You pause to look upon the famous piece titled, "Repose." Then you have your mind suddenly overtaken by "Dead Girls" by Voltaire and you almost have a giggle fit amongst the art critics because you can't shake the fact that "Repose" suddenly appears to be about necrophilia. That happened to me, and I warn you that this CD is so good that it will stick with you and maybe happen to YOU too! There are a lot of things you might listen to over the years, but this will be the CD you come back to every time. Excellent work!
