Leaether Strip - Dark Passages + Seasons Change - I Don't
EBM So Mr. Leaether Strip, we meet again. I am not a big fan of Claus Larsen's music, thought I admit he made a few really good tracks back in the days. But just like with Wumpscut, that seems to pump out releases all the time, you get bored after a while.

Either way I got the new released called ''Dark passages + Seasons change - I don't' which is supposed to be a sound track to a new independent horror movie. What I don't really get is why all of the Leaether Strip CD's have to be two CD's instead one just one? Of course this is a bargain if your really a fan of the band, but still for us that listen very little or aren't as big fans, its just too much.

The music is very slow and moody and I can image this would work very well in a horror movie where the music wants to create something and where its more in the background. Just sitting and listening to this type of music just gets boring after a while, at least for me, because there is very little happening in the music and after a while everything seems to sound the same.

So all and all I think this is boring music and that it doesn't make me feel anything at all. The production is good as always (that's one of the good thing about Leaether Strip). And the vocals aren't bad either. It's typical Leaether Strip and Claus knows what he is doing obviously.
