5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Dark - best of 2012, 17 Nov. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: (III) (Audio CD)
On (III), Crystal Castles go for a darker, more refined sound, creating an extremely good album.

Plague - The first release from (III), dark and progressive with a grinding bass. 9/10

Kerosene - With a strong bassline and a combination of high pitched vocals and high pressure,dry, jagged synths, plus one my favourite synth riffs of 2012, this is my pick of the album. Perfect song. 10/10

Wrath Of God - Opening with warm but sombre layered synths, the track explodes into an apocalyptic chorus, featuring icy chords and distorted vocals. Bleak,sinister and excellent. 10/10

Affection - Drenched in reverb, Alice's vocals drift across the sprightly instrumental on this chilled out track. 7/10

Pale Flesh - A minimal, jittery synth line is hit with vocals dripping with pain. Dark & emotive. 9/10

Sad Eyes - Pulsing, sorrow tinged dance track. Most commercial song on the album. Melancholic. 8/10

Insulin - Opens with 80s horror synths, before breaking into crackling menacing distorted basslines and shouty vocals. 7/10

Transgender - Eerie and haunting dance-tinged track with echoing vocals. Pleasant. 8/10

Violent Youth - An upbeat electro song featuring chunky bass synth lines and simple but memorable melodies. 8/10

Telepath - Uplifiting electro-dance track, one of the best on the album. Happiest track on the album. Every chord & note is perfectly chosen. 10/10

Mercenary - One of the more experimental tracks on here, has a spiritual vibe to it. Interesting string-like synth riffs. 8/10

Child I Will Hurt You - Mystical, beautiful closing track. Twinkling instrumental complimented by angelic vocals. Sounds festive. 9/10

This is the perfect dark electro album. Everything about it fits together perfectly, the variety of soundscapes created, the song titles, the visuals, all create an intriguing atmosphere.
As my favourite release of 2012, this is a must have album!

Perfect review!

I agree to every iota with you, apart from the fact that I would give Sad Eyes a glorious 10/10.
God, what an album!
