Avis sur l’album

Guided by singer and principal songwriter (and, on this album, producer) Gwynneth Haynes, Sophe Lux purvey a sort of cabaret-cum-alternative rock on their second album. Indeed, the opening track, "Target Market," sets you up to expect some sort of mesh of Lotte Lenya and Nina Hagen, so pronounced is the Teutonic dark circus feel. The record quickly veers toward more standard rock arrangements, however, even if a somewhat mannered dramatic feel permeates much of the material. It is a varied dish: "A Time of Light" isn't far from an after-hours torch song, yet other tracks, like "Little Soldier of Time" and "President," approach breezy new wave pop.

Sophe Lux (rough Latin for "the light of wisdom") is primarily a showcase for the highly theatrical singer and songwriter Gwynneth Haynes, who comes by her artsy tendencies naturally:...
