¡Forward, Russia!
Life Processes
release: July 22, 2008
style: dance macabre
[rating: ****] Seizing the Britishness of Suede, the grandness of Muse and the experimental discordance of the Blood Brothers (who share the same producer), ¡Forward, Russia! follows the debut with nothing straight forward by any means. In fact it's so above me that i am unable to fully grasp the band's intellect. Handling the falsetto vocals and the heavy profound lyrics in songs such as "Gravity and Heat" are a physical challenge. The band that is now using song titles instead of numbers crosses over to so many places and they dare us to classify them. Life Processes is the best thing the band could have made at this very hour. -Kenyon
