Thin Walls - Part I Electronics, Goth The Fair Sex The Fair Sex releases this first compilation of the reason that their first six albums no longer are available. On 'Thin Walls - Part I' we find songs from the albums 'Bite Release Bite' (1991), 'Spell of Joy' (1992) and 'Labyrinth' (1995) together with the new song "The Ever Unreached Aim". The Fair Sex describe themselves as a mix of goth and electronics, but I would rather say that they vary between playing electronics or playing goth depending on the song. The record starts out with songs from 'Bite Release Bite' and 'Spell of Joy' were The Fair Sex have a little more goth rock sound. In the end of the album most of the songs are from 'Labyrinth' were we can find a more electronic sound that are nearly touching what Nitzer Ebb produced many years ago. It's kind of hard to get a grip of this album because the sound varies so much, but that's rather common on best-of albums. We find the hits "Not Now, Not here" from 'Spell of Joy' and "Cyberbite" from 'Labyrinth' that according to me is the best one on the album. A good album for the really hard The Fair Sex fans, but I mainly think it's just a confusing labyrinth of music styles. This review was written 2003 and initially published on Neurozine.com 2
