This latest album from Son Lux is quite literally out of this world. It’s like going on this crazy psychedelic adventure, through an acid induced rabbit hole; and when you do come out through the other end; you’re left feeling a little bit dazed. If you ask me, I’d say it’s a mad mixture of Gotye and IAMX in terms of its futuristic sound, lyrics and the all-round cacophony, yet harmonious use of instruments. While the first few songs on the album were amazing, the middle songs felt like they were dragging a little bit and I really couldn’t wait for the album to be over. However, by the time the album finished, I had hoped there were at least three more songs. For me, I’d give this album three and a half out of five, even though there are a couple of five star songs on it. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.
If you’re into deep, meaningful and trippy music with a thick and heavy bass, this could be right for you. But even if you’re not, this album really does have something for everyone.
