As I wrote in one of my previous reviews, I really enjoy discovering new bands/artists that have some pottential and they have something fresh to offer. That's the case with Electro Compulsive Therapy, a new band from Monterey, Mexico.

They were recommended to me, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by their debut self-titled album. Wonderful compositions, very good and "tight" orchestration, and great vocals by Guillermo Herreros. Yes, I can hear influences by other bands from time to time, like Pink Floyd and/or Porcupine Tree for example, but it doesn't really matter, because they are few, and do not spoil the songs. You just hear a riff, or a keyboard sound here and there that reminds you of some other band, but that's it. As far as I understand, all 4 musicians are very talented and skilled and their performance is excellent! I don't want to mention each song separately, because all are very good. Yes, some of them are better perhaps, but there is not even one song that you will have to skip. Personal Favourites: Glow, Colors Fade Away, Blackstar, Stop...Wait and Trascend.

I strongly recommend the album to everybody who is fond of this kind of music, because in my opinion, this is the BEST release of 2022 so far! I am very serious about that and I am not trying to advertise it. (Why would I?) Do yourselves a favor and at least listen to this album! Then, you will decide for yourselves if it's worth buying it or not. Speaking for myself, I already have the digital version, and I am waiting for the CD to arrive. Congratulations to E.C.T for this really great album! I hope they will continue like that in the future! My Rating: 4.5 - 5.0 Stars.
