An amazing dark synthpop album!

"Like most good synthpop bands of the 90s, KieTheVez borrow a lot from the darker, more emotional side of Depeche Mode. Kiethevez if formed from the standard mold: electronic drums, synthesizer-based music that makes good use of arpeggiators, and a Dave Gahan-esque vocalist. However, KieTheVez puts the formula to good use, creating one of the best synthpop albums of the 90s.This album is completely solid. There isn't one bad track here. Standout moments include the emotional bass-driven opening track, "Can't See This", the arpeggiated meloncholy melodies of "One Roman Choir", the slower emotional ballad "Erina", and the catchy chorus of "Seems So Easy".Fans of bands like Depeche Mode or even The Cure will find familiar musical elements here (in fact, the band did a couple great Cure covers on the Fictional tribute album). If you're a fan of darker, emotionally moving synthpop music, you need this album! It's among the best of the genre!"
I imported opium and got hooked on it.....

"Not that long ago I bought opium and was really impressed. I even shared opium with my friends and they seemed to like it too. Opium helps me relax and offers a lot of rythem. My ex-girl friend from Thailand said her grandmother was addicted to Opium too, but the band does not sound like someting she would listen too. Oh well, i enjoy Opium and think they even sound better than most of the wannabe Depeche Mode, in fact they sound better than a lot of DM albums. Check out Opium, the techno poppie sounds are awesome...."
