Cesium_137 - Identity
Futurepop With the major letdown of the re-release of Cesium_137's debut album 'Advanced/Decay' it's nice to hear that they are back on track again with their new album 'Identity'. If you have heard their album 'Elements' you are surely going to recognize the great soundscapes with their danceable and poppy electro.

With 'Identity', you are more likely to listen through the whole album rather than zapping to your few favourite tracks. It seems to have a story to tell and the tracks are well ordered. Still, I have some favourite tracks I would like to mention. The opening track "Embers" really sets the standard for the rest of the album, "Broken" is a bit harder, but is still a very catchy tune. "Always" reminds me very much of our local and quite successful band Code 64, with the same floating and space like sounds as well as the great vocals. "The Lost" and "Firewalker" have some great female back vocals and really put another perspective on the sound. However, I propose you should listen to this album as a whole, since all the tracks are of high standard.

Altogether, Cesium_137 continues to impress and as always I'm curious of what they will put together next. Check this album out.
