This might not be for everyone but for those who truly understand avant garde pop music this is a treasure. While retro pop Maus twists his music with an intellectual depth and skill that is very rare these days. I can't stop listen to it.

Great music 17 Oct. 2008
By Eric R. Wahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the few albums I've listened to in the past year that's instantly catchy. It has a very dark synth sound to it; imagine a cross between Joy Division's sound on Closer with a more electronic sound and deeper, Scott Walker like vocals. I've been playing this non stop since last week and as far as I can tell there's really only a few tracks towards the end that seem a little bit repetitious (if there is to be any complaint made about the record it is that some of the songs sound similar to each other). But this isn't necessarily a bad thing, being that I like his sound. Bottom line here is that this is a fantastic record, and while it does sound similar to certain post punk bands, it's very original and catchy.

Mix some Joy Division with a little Tangerine Dream, and stir slowly 7 Dec. 2008
By Babytoxie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Maus' second release is an interesting mix of `80s synth and dark atmospherics. Some songs are for dancing (the superb "Rights for Gays"), some are for chilling out ("Do Your Best", "Tenebrae"), but overall this is an amazingly consistent collection of songs that would have fit right in with the post-punk movement. The track listing is as follows:

01. Heaven Is Real
02. Do Your Best
03. Rights For Gays
04. Love Letters From Hell
05. The Silent Chorus
06. Navy Seals
07. Pure Rockets
08. My Whole World's Coming Apart
09. Don't Worship The Devil
10. Tenebrae
11. Too Much Money
12. Green Bouzard
13. Old Town
14. Times Is Weird

The only problem I have with the CD is the lo-fi production. Some of the songs are so muffled that they obscure the obvious artistry that went into them. At the same time, this replicates the sound quality of the homemade mix tapes I made on my old cassette recorder in the `80s, so perhaps that makes them more authentic? Hmmmm...
