3 stars A lighter version of Shub Niggurath has this band often been described as. This is indeed a correct description of Amygdala on this album.

I am off course referring to the Shub Niggurath's demo and first album here. Their ideas has been taken further by Amygdala on this album. This album is still dark enough to scare the mice away from the table. But the music here is multi-faceted and not as claustrophobic as their French brethren. There is also a healthy dosage of RIO here and some classical music. Even some jazz is present here.

The result is a very good platter of zeuhl. Though is the dot over the i missing. A lot of the i is actually missing too. What I feel is missing most is any woodwinds and contrasts in the music. Drenching the album in synths is not a strong enough paintbrush for these songs. The music does not enthuse me that much either. It is a good zeuhl album and that's it. But it is a very decent debut album and I hope the second album is a lot better. Good effort and a big plus for the artwork.

3.25 stars
