About this album

Mistrust the Angels is “In Strict Confidence’s” 5th full length album. It was released on September 10, 2002 by Metropolis Records.

“In Strict Confidence” has been providing a creative voice in dark electro for years. Their previous release, Love Kills!, both embodied and helped define what this vein of gothic-touched electro had to offer.

Mistrust the Angels is not just more of the same. It is a more assured release, with all the musical talent of “In Strict Confidence” rendering the hard-edged and dramatically sweeping electronica to perfection. This release is nothing if not polished, experienced, and engaging.

When “In Strict Confidence” isn’t composing another predestined club hit with this method (“Herzattacke’s” driven synth line and solid beats fulfill this fate), they are performing in another area of their forte — creating a new sense of the gothic electronic melody (such as “Au Milieu des Anges” smooth female vocals that glide with delicate synths and stab over electronic washes, which could be played by a string section). Because “In Strict Confidence” is made up of veteran performers, expect Mistrust the Angels to tour between these poles throughout the album — it’s a good mix of feeling.

It is a mature release, being consistent in terms of both execution and theme — a solid, well-defined release that should not be missed.
