Psideralica! Let's jump right in, shall we. First, we have "Fight" which comes in with a good solid metal riff backed with a great electronic back drop. Lady Marian's vocals provide both anger and harmony in a very well rounded great musical track.
Next, on the amazing platter of music is "My Toy," which may be the favorite of mine. This has the ability to reach to all sorts of alternative people. It has every element from metal to industrial with a little bit of goth thrown in for good measure.
"Get Out of My Life" is a heavy metal song that basically says: "FUCK OFF!". It’s an anger filled song that you would send to an ex that really hurt you, bloody marvellous. It’s amazing how Lady Marian manages to keep harmony in a hate filled song.
Then we have "Clone," which to me is a metal industrial masterpiece, you have an amazing electronic industrial back with some very decent chuggy guitar riffs.
"Oceans Of Time" is like a story told by Lady Marian with the picture being painted by the music. It’s a nice easy flowing song that doesn’t loose Psideralica’s metal base.
"Tonight" is a very sexy song that contains a lot of heavy energy from Lady Marian in the chorus and some lovely industrial backbeats.
"Disturbing Dreams" starts with a musical tribute to the black and white horror films. Following into the song you are followed with a disturbing but very likable track. It is in this song that you really discover the musical talents of all the band both in the music and Lady Marian’s vocals. "Disturbing Dreams," I must admit is my favorite track on the album due to the sheer music talent it exudes.
"Little Wings" is another track that I think will be appealing to all alternative folk. The song has this beautiful musical harmony but yet a heaviness that leaves you amazed.
Close your eyes and imagine a music box. Next, start listening to Music Box, and you can hear it and see it in your thoughts. Powerful vocals, amazing music with a lyrically genius story being told.
"Your Enemy's Best Friend" has a pop element as well as the industrial-metal feel. I feel this song has the power to cross genres and appeal to a much wider audience.
"Superblind" has lovely guitar riffs and amazing drum beats. This is an amazing song and a fitting end to an amazing album. Everything ties together in this song very nicely.
All in all I believe this album will appeal to all and definitely a great buy. Well done my peeps on this stunning album. 9/10
