Miss FD - Comfort for the Desolate
Industrial Rock, Electrorock You know, the more and more I think about writing this review, and the more and more I listen to Miss FD's 'Comfort for the Desolate', I get more and more of an urge to just spurt out how good and beautiful this album is. If you haven't heard of Miss FD, her self description as a Gothpop Princess fits very well; the music is terrific, and her voice is just as beautiful as she is. She puts a hex on you as you listen to her music, but this is one spell I don't mind submitting to, so long as the music doesn't stop flowing.

A few of the songs are slow, such as "Consciousness of Awe". I found it to be awe inspiring, and a song that I could just fall asleep to. Not because it's boring in any sense, but because it's just so relaxing. I suppose that's a theme that I kept coming back to every time I went deeper into this album. It's just so peaceful, like laying out in the middle of your yard at night, and counting the stars in the night sky.

Now, some other songs, still able to make me melt, had more of a pop rhythm, being more dance floor like, but not too harsh to completely polarize the album in two. Of course, when I say this, I talk about tracks such as "Lover of Fate" and "Wanting is Not Enough".

Personally, however, I found "Incompleteness" to be the most beautiful song on the album. It's very slow, and you get a lot of long, low key synths going along with a slight electro beat with some ambient tones. But, what's best about this song is that Miss FD once again shines through with her awesome voice, and the humming that accompanies the song gave me goosebumps everywhere. I listened to this song twice in a row just to make sure what I was hearing was real.

If I could sum up this album in a word, I could only say that it's angelic. Honestly, I found myself able to relax with a lot of the songs. The beautiful voice of Miss FD combined with the slower tunes coming out of each track really enabled me to just mellow out and focus on the majestic synths and electro tunes that flowed from my headphones and planted a garden in my head. And every time I continued on listening to the album, the landscape grew, sprouting more and more flowers, until I knew not what to do with myself except enjoy the ecstasy that flowed within my eardrums. And this is just one album that shall not be deflowered in any sense.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
