IAMX – Metanoia

'Say Hello Melancholia'

'IAMX' is no easy listen­ing music while driv­ing a car or jog­ging through the park. For a unthink­ing listen­ing beside of oth­er activ­it­ies, the soph­ist­ic­ated songs are much too good. Rather, it is the pure enjoy of elec­tron­ic music with deep essence.

The open­ing song 'No Maker Made Me' is an awe­some sound­scape with a lot of stut­ter­ing synth effects and futur­ist­ic indus­tri­al sounds. I can strongly identi­fy myself with many songs on this record.

Especially the song 'The Background Noise' did this to me. This is a very emo­tion­al song that you can truly cap­ture only with an cor­res­pond­ing exper­i­ence of life.

But I love also the singles 'Happiness' and 'Oh Cruel Darkness Embrace Me' as well. Both are breath­tak­ing songs, ana­logue to this the music videos are too.

After the mediocre album 'The Unified Field', 'IAMX' found back to his strength. Every track on this album sounds unbe­liev­able unique. And it's such a fant­ast­ic voy­age to listen this album over good speak­ers in your liv­ing room very loud.

If you like bizarre sounds and extraordin­ary com­pos­i­tions, then you are guar­an­teed happy with this album. All songs move in mel­an­choly mid-tempo and sound extremely bleak. I bow to this bold and impress­ive album. I love it.

By the way, this album also made it into our art­icle ‘The best Synth Pop and genre-related albums 2015‘. Read now.
