Klyne: Klyne

review klyne x1 cong

We’ve waited a long time for an electro/dance/pop album as good as CagedBaby’s* 2005 Will See You Now … and we’re still waiting.

We had high hopes for Klyne, as the early tracks we heard were good. Like Cagedbaby, they were pleasant pop tunes played electronically and with edge and coolness. Obviously, the early tracks are the standouts and parts of the album don’t reach that level, but it’s not bad at all.

The album is made up of outstanding tracks (the atmospheric Don’t Stop, the falsetto dance tune Still Not Over You), the very good (crisp opener Break Away, Paralyzed, the danceable Sure Thing) but other songs tend to be the fillers, though it does all grow; after a dozen plays we were less sure which the filler was. A lot to like. Not bad at all.

*Aka Thomas Gandey, DJ and producer, last seen working on Jeff Wayne’s musical version of The War of the Worlds.
