9th And The Last Life Pop, Synthpop Sadman '9th And The Last Life' is Swedish Sadman's second full-length album after their debut 'Cold In The State Of Me' from 2008. Both albums have been released by Memento Materia with some heavy experience of synthpop. ... and synthpop is what this is all about, with heavy on the pop part. Us Swedes have always been good at doing catchy pop and this is no exception. It's moody, melancholic and somehow cold and warm at the same time. Lars Fernström's voice is somewhat influenced by Dave Gahan and you can really tell it right in the first song "I Hide" in the chorus. Generally the album is not that far away from Depeche Mode's calm songs from their newly released albums, but also not at all. Overall, this is a very well produced album, even though it feels a bit plain after a couple of songs. Not to much variation is going on and even though most of the songs are memorable, they are not that different from each other. This is rather an album you listen all the way through, since it lacks those real hits that stands out and that you want to hear over and over again. 450
