Is a future embrace,
This review is from: TheFutureEmbrace (Audio CD)
Yes, this takes a while to get into and I mean 5+ listens but once you get there these songs really get under your skin and have you humming their melodies and whispering lyrics.
It isn't an upbeat album, but behind the darkness in the production the lyrics are tame in comparison to the bitterness of Corgans previous work but his style is still evident "on the 9th day God created shame"- Walking Shade.
Apparantly there is only one guitar track on each song, sometimes it sounds like this was a mistake sometimes it just sounds great, heavily effected guitar sounds, distorted drum machine beats and sequenced basslines, it really is all the tools of '80's industrial music, I like that combination but it isn't everyone's cup of tea. But like any good revival it couldn't sound like a record created in the 80's the production is bangup to date regardless of the core equipment.
