Review by colorofmoney91
2 stars Loyal to a Fault: For fans of Depeche Mode who want to listen to something other than Depeche Mode.

The Present Moment is a modern day coldwave group that is very reminiscent of similar groups that were popular in the '80s. The songs on Loyal to a Fault are very pop- oriented, short length, simple synth-pop/rock songs. While the songs on this album are catchy and well done, I've been having a hard time finding much here in the way of "progressive" music. Some of these tracks have mild progressive tendencies but only in the way that the synths get progressively harsher or more powerful; this doesn't really seem like enough to call them progressive though, considering that the 3-5 minute long songs never progress beyond a 4/4 time signature and there are no apparent sonic explorations of any kind.

I've recently, finally, become a fan of Depeche Mode after trying to enjoy their music for the past decade. Only last week has their music finally clicked with me, and I'm glad to be a part of their fandom which has always inspired me with their die-hard dedication to what I've always considered to be simply depressing synth-pop with a vocalist who is tougher than nails. Depeche Mode have a certain type of integrity to their style that most music lovers wouldn't argue against. The Present Moment, however, don't have much integrity for playing in their very own style, and Loyal to a Fault is simply the electronic equivalent to a modern rock band deciding to play songs that sound only like The Rolling Stones; it's been done before, and it's been done better.

The best that I can describe Loyal to a Fault would be a darker and slightly more industrial version of Violator-era Depeche Mode pop music with slightly more modern production value. I will not say that this is bad music because, while I do think it is unoriginal and only very, very loosely progressive (I guess), it is still enjoyable for simply electronic pop tunes for the more mature pop fans among us. Just don't download this album expecting something mindblowing.
