A Bleak Review

Last week I logged into MySpace, something I rarely do. I had one new mail to my amazement. It was from a guy who had reviewed Bleak.

Some exceprts:

The song sounds as lifeless and cold as it’s title suggests, but only in a good way. It starts with a strong, repeating and echoing note from what sounds like a bass guitar with no actual bass-frequencies audible.

A distorted radio-like sample in the end leads me to thinking that the artist was aiming for a post-apocalyptic (or such) soundscape, and in that he succeeded.

It manages to sound lifeless through it’s whole lenght, while still retaining some grasp to the listener with it’s repeating rhythms.

Always fun to be reviewed, and you can read the whole thing here.
