An electronic love/hate musical masterpiece
(4 out of 5 stars)
""Wow" is all you'll say after listening to "Sins of the Flesh" for the first time. Being the band's first album, there are wonderful stylistic congruencies between the songs, which define a sound that is difficult to put your finger on. Sometimes slow and melodic, other times fast and pounding, it's like riding a one-hour emotional roller coaster...you'll need some prozac when you're done.......Some personal favoreet tracks:"Not My God" has such a good chorus- I find myself screaming along everytime I listen."Addiction" tells a story of obsession, more than love. Best lyrics on the album. Haven't we all been through something like this?"Why Not" I like this one personally, it's slow and deliberate. The tone of voice and content are perfectly lined up with the mood of the song."Degenerate" AMAZING bass....you won't believe it. Basically, I guess what I'm trying to say is that EVERy song here is a piece to a bigger puzzle...the order was deliberate and effective.And you'd be hard-pressed to find a better voice that Chris Randall's. I haven't. He can serenade you one second and scream at you another. "Sins of the Flesh" is VERY electronic, but in the good way. Everything flows...it's a masterpiece because there are obvious influences (well in MY opinion anyways) but in no way does it ever submit to convention. You owe it to yourself to check it out- just don't look for a love song here."
