The Dark Romantics: Heartbreaker (lujo)
release: September 9, 2008
style: dark romance
[rating: **] Like She Wants Revenge, the entire record from Dark Romantic is blatantly about heartbreak, torn relationships and dark romance. "Love and Pain" and "The Death of You" are only a couple of the titles that represent the content. With a band consisting of spouses and a best friend, it's ironic that the songs are so solemn and brooding. Not nearly as intense as the best work from Interpol or Editors or SWR, but the dark side of reality is always welcome. -Kenyon

right, because bands always sit around & write songs and lyrics about each other...not about anything else in the whole world. definitely not anything fictional or literary...that would be prepostorous.
