Alien Skin’s arrangement of chords always manages to throw you off with some calculated change from major to minor. A fantastic representation of life.
Your experience will dictate the way it affects you; that’s how real art works. That’s what Alien Skin gives us, time & time again. This album is stunning.
The imaginative nature of these songs is superb, the atmospheric instrumentation surrounding & underlining the concepts is always striking.
It’s a deeply thoughtful, unusual & beautiful collection – one of the most interesting & out there releases of the past few years.
When creating an Alien Skin album I enter a self imposed impenetrable vault. I never ask for advice as this will most likely derail the creative process.
There’s a strangely cinematic effect to the music, whereby the art of it stretches much further than what is audible. It’s a stunning effect.
