Reflections of Rage Darkwave, Electro The Last Dance In the end of autumn 2003 a little package sent from the states arrived containing an album from The Last Dance. That album was called 'Whispers in rage'. Many of my friends thought it was I pure rip-off of The Crüxshadows and for a start I agreed with them to some extent. But when I had listened to the album a couple of times I found little glimpse of light that I did not expect to find, in the end I started to really love the album. Now it's a year later and I still listen to the album at least once a week, like I have done every week ever since, over and over. Almost exactly one year later The Last Dance releases a remix album as a follow-up to their last album. The name 'Reflections of Rage' nicely bind the album to 'Whispers in Rage' and that includes the design as well. Besides remixes from acts like L'âme Immortelle, Collide, Ego Likeness and Thau Shalt Not and such, the band also bring you two new tracks and a very nice cover of Britney Spears' "Oops, I did it again". The two new tracks, "Desperately Still" and "Simplicity", are truly amazing and the last mention one is absolutely wonderful to listen to. Your mind starts to wander and you start to long for the next full-length album from the band which should be released in the end of 2005. Even though the remixes are interesting and fun to listen to every now and then it always turns out that I listen to the original instead. Laying in the couch, sometimes with a glass of whiskey, and just enjoy it. This review was written 2004 and initially published on Neurozine.com 3
