iTunes Review

Canada's Purity Ring—i.e., singer Megan James and producer/instrumentalist Corin Roddick—pulls off something rather remarkable on its 2012 debut album. The duo takes chilly synths, arctic beats, and space-age vocals and warms them up. The music's mechanical edge is smoothed with melodies that recall the soothing nostalgia of long-passed love and pop songs. Roddick doesn't make it easy. As with vintage Daft Punk, his textures constantly shift—creating the sense that James is jumping from one quicksand patch to another. To her credit, James never loses her composure. She stays on course through the stuttering pulses of "Ungirthed" and hits angelic peaks for the raging waves of "Anemany." "Lofticries" aligns closer to '80s-styled synth-pop, with large blocks of keyboards rising at sharp angles. "Grandloves," featuring Young Magic, throws out a murky hip-hop groove. The synths of "Cartographist" hold down the bottom end, with James filling in the sparse atmospherics with alien harmonies.

speechless!!!!

First of all, i want to say that i have been listening to electronic music for over 22 years to that present day, i know, i know i'm that old right!
Over those years i have discovered a lot of very amazing bands, and still play their cd's frequently, i have more than 4000 albums in my collection.
What purity ring has to offer is beyond words, absolutely amazing, a breath of fresh air in the music industry in general since i cannot put this canadian born based duo in any category that i can think of…….long live FLA by the way.
Just buy it and embrace it, it will take you on a very interesting musical journey…..trust me.

A Masterpiece

This album takes the mind in to the dark creepy corner of your mind and keeps it there. A sound we have never heard, a mix between hip-hop, electronic, witch-house, and post dub step. Canada's finest album and the best so far of 2012
