Project Pitchfork - Black
Electro In opposite to many other people's opinions, I feel that Project Pitchfork's best releases has been their later once, more specifically 'Dream, Tiresias!', 'Continuum Ride' and I guess also 'Quantum Mechanics' in some sense. Sure, I agree, Project Pitchfork have made many classic tracks and I used to love many of their albums, but now, when I look back at them and remove the feeling of nostalgia, many of their albums are not that great, some of them are even quite crap (like 'Inferno' for example).

With 'Dream, Tiresias!' and 'Continuum Ride' being my favorites, I thought Project Pitchfork stagnated a bit again with 'Quantum Mechanics' and unfortunately, the stagnation has continued with their new album 'Black'.

The first video from this album was "Rain" and they did that spot on. "Rain" is the best track of the album. A lovely, quite depressing melody, a slower beat and Peter Spilles is at his best in the chorus. One of my favorite Pitchfork tunes.

The track before that is also one of my favorites, "Circus". There's no secret that Peter (and perhaps the band) has very strong animal rights thoughts and "Circus" is a perfect way of showing it. A bit faster and straight forward than "Rain", and it has a nice flow and beat through it.

A track that goes in the same direction as "Rain" is the beautiful "Acid Ocean". One of the slower and softer tracks of the album. Strong melody and a beautiful chorus, that is what I want from my lovely Pitchforks.

And sure, there are some other tracks worth to mention, the 7 minutes and 26 seconds long "Pitch-Black" that opens up this album and maybe "Storm Flower" as well. But many of the other tracks feels a bit slapped together, they are not bad, just a bit "meh" from what I expect from Project Pitchfork.

And that is also my final conclusion of this album, it's good, just a bit meh.
