More like Van Nuys after 9 p.m., actually. Despite pretensions to goth greatness, Los Angeles's London After Midnight are probably best described as journeymanlike. On this reissue of an album that first bowed in 1996, LAM turn out about an hour or so of slickly produced death rock--nothing that will offend the ears, but nothing that pushes the envelope either. Still, ringleader Sean Brennan is a capable vocalist and songwriter and gets a decent groove going on the driving title track and the slower, anthem-like "Kiss." Psycho Magnet will no doubt find appeal among those who've kept a torch burning for Bauhaus and its spinoff projects. --Steve Landau

This band makes some pretty basic Gothic Industrial Rock music, similar, I suppose, to Marilyn Manson. The CD that I have is strange because it doesn't have all the same tracks and the songs are in a different order than listed, so watch out for that if you get this CD.

"Alright. I heard about London After Midnight several years back and I am thinking, "what the f--k?", why don't i just go out and BUY this kickass CD? So (FINALLY) i order it off of here and sure enough it arrives on Feb. 3, 2005...I was IMMENSELY BLOWN AWAY when I popped the CD in the player. I read some of the lyrical content, it is SO gothic, dark, depressing, and deep that (right away) I knew it fit MY taste perfectly! I am what people like to call goth, and so I guess you would say this is JUST what the doctor ordered for me! Some of the lyrics on here are hard to take, since they are sooo deep in sorrow, doom, depression, and lust. But you have to remember when buying this CD that (most of the songs on here) work out nicely like gothic poetry...and the mixtures all click together to form one sensational (if forgotten) alternative goth rock album that will remain a legacy in the dark underworld of this particular genre. A solid 10/10! AND, a must for anmy goth fan!!!"
