The Mechanimal debut takes you for a stroll around secret hideaways of the dark ambient sounds of the last decades, thus being an ideal example of well-implemented ideas which though inspired by yesterday perfectly reflect today.
Though many will disagree with me, I believe that we lost the chance to see the birth of a Greek-spoken electro-rock genre that could immediately erase any such effort (in Greek lyrics, that is) that has been released since the ’80s. Thankfully, however, it does erase the English-spoken ones, and this is just as cool somehow.
This is by far the best Greek album for the year that just ended. An album that clearly illustrates the loneliness of the urban landscape; better yet, it reflects big city sorrow.
The 10 tracks included in Mechanimal’s debut album stand before you with that tongue-in-cheek expression, they use a pin to burst the bubbles you placed on bedtime stories or utopian dreams, and challenge you to face the truth.
