Hidden Souls – All That We Destroy (Album – Echozone)

Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop, Future-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Four years after the promising debut album “The Incorruptible Dream” Argentinian formation Hidden Souls strike back with their new album featuring eleven songs.

Content: “All That we Destroy” is a well-crafted Electro-Pop production which sounds ‘poppier’ than its predecessor whereon the band also mixed harder EBM elements. The songs are elaborated and often carried by strong leads and choruses.

+ + + : Hidden Souls confirm the strong potential from the debut album although this work is more sophisticated. The Electro-Pop sound has something personal but I’ve been mainly impressed by the song writing. I also have to say a word about the great vocals reminding me of the charisma of Tom Smith (Editors). One of the best cuts also is the hardest one (cf. “We Are All Escapists”).

– – – : I think this album could have been improved from a pure technical point of view; the mix sometimes revealing compression especially on the kicks.

Conclusion: Hidden Souls definitely deserves more recognition and attention in the Electro-Pop universe.

Best songs: “We Are All Escapists”, “Dive Into My Dreams”, “Nobody”.

Rate: 7½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
