As for me: it's far too hope-loaded, and lyrics are usually cringeworthy. Synths sound irritatingly similar in almost every song. Furthermore, it may just be my impression, but it doesn't sound honest at all. Stardust is good indeed though. Generally he released weak some albums before, but usually I could find more than only one good song on them.
блин, AINL, мать его, мощный весьма.
но есть два фактора, которые не делают его самым мощным : 1) нету взрывного, крышесносящего трека наподобие No Maker Made Me ; 2) мало. вроде бы 9 треков достаточно, но ИМХО, маловато будет. Stardust, Break The Chain - топ.
p.s. после полного прослушивания альбома почему-то тянет слушать часами Volatile Times. вот такие тараканы в голове Х)
I personally thought it was totally uninspired and devoid of creativity, I really hated it. I understand it's my point of view (and it's nort worth much) and others might like it but I have a hard time finding the passion and the sincerity behind those tracks...
I've listened to Alive in new light quite a few times now and still think it's mostly weak material and a 2/5 album ..maybe a 2.5 'cause I love the title track and mile deep hollow. This is the first IAMX release that I don't think i'll be buying unless i see a copy going cheap. Glad most people seem to be enjoying though - Chris is very underappreciated!
I don't get the big disappointment??? Maybe not his best but certainly not bad. Only on second listen and I already like 7/9 songs. The funny thing is most people disliking the album seem to like different songs.
enjoying the new album on first listen, some of the vocals seem really strained though like he's trying hit notes that are uncomfortably high? Not an attack on his voice in general though which is great
"Unfall" sounds like the kind of thing you'd be "listening" to very late at night in some not well-known club. Which makes me presume that the whole album would be better appreciated if one would have already had their share of booze beforehand. Maybe I'll try just that.
