Background/Info: Pure Obsessions & Red Nights has already released multiple productions and after having accomplished a trilogy they move on with the first chapter of a new trilogy.
Content: The title sounds intriguing and definitely comes to tease our fantasy. Sound-wise we feel like jumping back in time, dancing on a dancefloor somewhere in the 80s. The vocals are powerful and still sexy.
+ + + : This is a meticulous and subtle production which mainly comes through in the arrangements reminding 80s Wave-Pop influences. The retro sound still has a refreshing and contemporary sensation so in the end the work sounds as a sonic bridge between the 80s and today.
– – – : The album features cool songs but no trace of a potential hit.
Conclusion: A fully enjoyable work although the title of the album remains more intriguing than the content.
Best songs: “As It Shines In The Dark”, “Fly Above The City Lights”.
