gibsonfan159 Posted March 25, 2018 Share Posted March 25, 2018 "Connected By Love", I sense a little bit of Bowie, maybe some T-Rex, and some Pink Floyd "The Thin Ice" with the piano. There are a lot of sound effects on the album I'm certain I've heard on early 90s video games. Almost like he brought a hungover Trent Reznor into the studio. It's a shame because White is a hell of a guitarist, as evident on "Respect Commander". "Ezmerelda Steals The Show" has a Pink Floyd vibe. "What's Done Is Done" has the old White Stripes feel to it, with retro vinyl record scratching. Musically, certain parts sound like a rock attempt at Skrillex. White seems desperate to sound poignant and philosophical, but sounds out of character and over-reaching. An artist can go two ways when reaching an audience- catchy, simple, and mainstream or deep with substance over cheap thrills. If you do the latter, you'd better make damn sure the substance is good enough to leave a mark on the human brain that's capable of understanding it. Otherwise you sound like someone who recorded an album while high on LSD. This album treads that line. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
