“From the stuttering faux-funk of opener ‘Carnival of hearts’ this hypnotic record draws you into a netherworld of poisoned dreams and half-remembered nightmares; the effect is akin to someone obsessively turning the radio dial in some acid rain-drenched dystopia of a futuristic film noir but failing to find anything to soothe the troubled soul.
The theme of modern society’s shiny facade, diverting us from the human cesspit that festers beneath, is not a new one but has rarely been so convincingly executed.
Stylistically diverse, lyrically blade-sharp and peppered with voices – some muttering, some incantory, some cheering and some in the form of eerie, ethereal backing vocals, the album is infused with a highly invective soundwash.
Throughout, Jack Pound sings/talks like a man who’s really lived the life and Colin Gibson’s arrangements would flummox musicians half his age, but who exactly is Cole Hammer -The man from paranormal?
Their first Album ‘Domestic Bliss’ was merely excellent, this is truly exceptional.
Sleep well children.”
