Album Review by Erica
My love affair with electronic music has been a bit rocky as of late, so when I first heard Mr. Negative’s new album, Dark Star, it felt like rekindling an old flame. I was craving something fresh, and Mr. Negative’s new sound gave me just what I needed.
“Weeping Wonder Land” is a great way to kick off a stellar album and to draw the listener in. Upon first listen, I liked this track straight away, and was pleasantly surprised when I found that several tracks on the album were even better. Although “Static Kingdom,” “Time to Die,” and the album’s debut track, “Shades of Negative” are by far the strongest tracks on the album, all of them are important. When listening to all the tracks in sequence, it takes you on a journey into dupstep space, and an artistic storynunfolds. “Vektor 9” wasn’t my favorite at first, but the Dark Star story would be incomplete without it; it grew on me after the second listen. The album’s concluding track, “Nocturnal Submission” is a bit of a new sound for Mr. Negative, but it’s a well delivered ending to the album, and a cool song to listen to when you’re feeling a bit mellow. “Nocturnal Submission” was a great addition to my “Just Chilling” playlist.
Over all a great album; if you’re tired of the same electronic sounds that are done over and over, Dark Star is the new sound you’re looking for!
