Album Review

In popular music one thing is for certain: old genres never die or completely fade away; they just recycle. On Danse Macabre the Faint lovingly and accurately resurrect all that was memorable/forgettable about the disposable hits of 1980s: repetitive dance beats propelled by sterile drum machines, monotone vocals, spastic outbursts of cacophony, and hypnotic keyboard synthesizer motifs. But don't hold that against them. Like Soft Cell, Human League, Gary Numan, and Kraftwerk, the Faint have the ability to pen strong hooks, most notably in the tracks "Posed to Death," "Let the Poison Spill," and "The Conductor," which would have been monster hits in the dawn of the age of MTV. The lyrics are decadent but not offensive, often spinning surrealistic tales that vaguely detail the seamy side of disco-club life. Proudly wearing their new romantic/new wave heart on their collective sleeve, the Faint offer a campy yet playfully dark collection that is purely an exercise in Reagan-era pop-culture nostalgia.

Customer Reviews

Agenda Suicide, the drones work hard before they die

This is one of the best bands around today, the techno rock or whatever they play is mind blowing. I went to their show with Beep Beep, it was the best show I’ve ever seen. Listen to it, and do whatever you can to see them live, they are worth it. At least get Agenda Suicide, it is a great song, and the video is first-rate as well.

excellent

Although they are not that original, per se, the faint manage to bring back some synthesizer and dance elements of 80's bands such as devo and depeche mode, and blend it with some 90's indie and throw in some cool new wave stuff. if this had been released 20 years ago, it would not have stood out much, but the faint manage to bring back this style of indie-electro-dance-rock sorta stuff to us listeners today.
