Sensuous Enemy - Fragments (CD - Sonic Mainline)

Industrial Music CDs at Storming The Base

Hailing from the US, the music of Sensuous Enemy is the musical vision of Jai (voice, lyrics, piano) and John (programming, guitar) and their music is a polished, passionate and expressive style of electro/goth rock underpinned by synthetic rhythms in a manner that should appeal to fans of Ego Likeness while the passion the music evokes should appeal to Cruxshadows lovers who aren't averse to a guitar-heavier sound. The band's main strength lies in the way that Jai's vocals are able to match the expressive heights that John's guitar licks scale (even if they do seem to get a little lost in the mix on occasion) and this holds true just as much for such faster tracks as the opening "Whispers" or the surging vitality of "Shiver 2008" as it does for the slower and full-blooded "Tidal", where her voice really finds its niche. At times, the music takes on an epic, even pompous feel; "Ashes" and "Over", for example, both benefit from a decidedly epic sound while the instrumental "WWIIWD" takes this to its logical conclusion in an almost classic rock style, sounding like the sort of music TV stations use to cover really driving or any similarly action-packed subjects. Similarly, their cover of The Pet Shop Boys' "It's A Sin" should give them a leg-up while allowing them to pay tribute to their influences. Testament to the album's sound qualities is the fact that even so august a figure as Romell Regulacion doesn't sound any better during his remix of a track called "Jaded" (not does he need to!) while Jose V Ferraro gives "Shiver" an appealing synthpop edge which is rather more enjoyable than Andrew 'Iris' Sega's version of "RedBlueBlack" (although I can't help wondering if the track's exotic edge was more prominent in the original!) before the album is rounded off by a serviceable dance mix of "Whispers" which should do well enough in its intended environment. This album actually dates from 2008 but never received the attention it deserved at the time but it's well worth catching up on now as Sensuous Enemy's poppy but passionate sound and romantic lyrics has a potentially wide appeal that could find favour among both gothic & non-gothic music lovers.
