"This is an outstanding following album for HOW. While at first, casual, listen the CD seems hard to get into, a closer listen and then repeated listenings lets the album open like a flower (sorry, bad analogy but true).
This is music that grows with you, it does not just grows old. A couple of years later and I still put this on from time to time. There is soemthing very engrossing about the songs here. While many seem simple they can be very complex. And the lyrics are thoughtful, something often missing in the synthpop genre.
Yeah, I said synthpop, which is pigeon-holing the band too much. They sound like Depeche Mode the way Depeche Mode sounds like Don McLean, i.e. not at all. But they do make left of center pop music with electronics, so...
Heck, I would release them on my label in a minute :-)-Dave"
May be the best CD you've never heard

"This may be my favorate cd of all time. House of Wires is an obscure techno group that was on Tooth and Nail's Plastiq Musiq label. Why they were dropped I do not know.Monogamy is influenced by 80's techno pop but is more arty and thoughtful. The vocals are understated but wonderful, going perfectly with the music. If you like OMD's vocalizations, as I do, House of Wires is even better, if you can believe that.The cd has quite a range in mood, from the fun World of the Future and Caroline to the downbeat The Door with 5000 Locks. The later is an incredible song, both in it's slow, etherial, yet powerful instrumentation and in its spare, but deep, perceptive lyrics. Creating a sound like a camera going off, yet also using haunting strings and piano, The Door with 5000 Locks is typical of HofW's creative versitility.Yes, this is a "Christian" cd. But don't let that scare you. It's not preachy at all. It's a shame this cd has not reached a wider audience. It deserves to.But, hey, you can know some incredible music hardly anyone else does."
