mind.in.a.box - Lost Alone
Electro, Synthpop mind.in.a.box is allot different from the other kind of music that usually keeps falling down my mailbox. For me it's often EBM, Synth and Darkwave that manage to find its way, but I have never before got an album with Techno-pop.

I get a very "travelling" feeling when I listen to this album. It's almost like sitting on a train and sees the landscape outside the window pass you by to a blurry view, or why not a travel through life with its divided parts. This debut album is hard to describe, but magical.

Stev who is behind the whole project is a computer game musician as a profession and sometimes you are able to hear it since the album is kind of easy to listen to with it's well formed synthesiser loops and static beats. But it's not boring, more the total opposite. If you listen to the song you have many different types to enjoy. Everything from up speeded, pitched, distorted to a voice with no change at all. Sometimes the voice is high and then suddenly becomes dark and dull. Reminds you a little bit the singer Aaron Stainthorpe's voice from My Dying Bride's bitter ballads.

This is an artist that really should register the domain verymagical.com and then pay the yearly bill. Very beautiful.
