2 stars I don't like this "synthetic" album from Antony very much.

It is too much drum-machine oriented, too little (almost none actually) guitar parts. Just a combo of keyboards, totally eighties oriented and quite flat as far as I am concerned.

After a dreadful opener ("Prelude 1984") one gets two long and instrumental tracks without any emotion. They are cold, impersonal, and weak.

The only track that I like on this album is the short and closing "Anthem 1984". Finally a good piece of music! It is all harmony, poetry and melody. It is totally keyboards driven but in style.

I really wonder what came through Antony's mind while he released this work. Two stars is the real limit I can go to rate this below average album. Sub-par synth music from the eighties: that's all that it is.
