Parralox - Metropolis
Electro, Synthpop This is my third Parralox review and after two EP's I finally get to review a full-length album called 'Metropolis' that have the same type of stylish cover art as all of the other band's releases.

For people new to Parralox, they are very sweet synth/electropop and if they go anymore sweeter and mainstream, their label probably have to completely change their promotion list, because this is almost getting a bit too regular pop to me. Not to far fetched to think about Robyn or Kylie's more electro inspired albums. The danger of loosing the edge is that it get's a bit generic and too easy going, sometimes seems that the tracks just pass me by without me really getting involved.

However, it's really professionally made, the mixing and mastering is great and they sure have talent for creating good pop music. People keen on synthpop will most defiantly enjoy this, but I would reward a bit more edge to keep me a bit more interested all the way.
