Violens - Amoral
Amoral by New York City art rockers Violens is not a bad album but it's not great either, being a fairly mediocre collection of 80s pop pastiche. The arrangements are lush and the musicianship is top drawer, but the the songs are all pretty samey and tend to just run into each other without much distinction. The exception is 'Are You Still in the Illusion?' - a brooding, menacing triumph, it overshadows the other tracks making you wish the band had come up with a few more gems like this. It would have definitely made for a more interesting album.
