Now & Then...
x Lykke Li
Rarely do electronica and gothic go hand in hand so elegantly dancing, but with a hint of winter's own sadness in charge of the Swedish artist.
The emotional second album is neatly debated between the frenetic dance and the hypnotic trance, the result being a notoriously strange darkness.
"It's very simple. There aren't many tricks. There's some reverb in the voices, but the songs were recorded in one shot and they have errors. I think you could describe the album as the chronicles of a woman's youth, love, lust and despair, but it's really about the feeling of breaking a heart... or having a broken heart", the young woman describes about the LP.

Pocas veces la electrónica y lo gótica van de la mano tan elegantemente bailando, pero con un dejo de tristeza propia de invierno a cargo de la artista sueca.
El emocional segundo disco se debate prolijamente entre el baile frenético y el trance hipnótico, siendo el resultado una notoria oscuridad extraña.
"Es muy simple. No hay muchos trucos. Hay algo de reverb en las voces, pero las canciones fueron grabadas en una sola toma y tienen errores. Creo que podrías describir el disco como las crónicas de juventud de una mujer, amor, lujuria y desesperación. Pero, realmente se trata de la sensación de romper un corazón...o tener el corazón roto", describe la joven sobre el LP.

Currently playing the Command and Conquer 2: Tiberian Sun Original Soundtrack CD, released through Westwood Studios. My copy of this CD came with the Platinum Edition of the game, which came with a cool pewter figurine, a booklet with the making of the game, and a numbered box.
Composed by Frank Klepacki and Jarrid Mendelson, the soundtrack to the sequel of the legendary Command and Conquer: Tiberian Dawn marked a major change in the sound. Instead of the Klepacki's diverse set of industrial, metal, orchestral, and hip-hop genres, Tiberian Sun went for a moody, ambient music with little fast action tracks. He hired Jarrid Mendelson to co-compose several tracks and even additional songs to the game. Admittedly, it took me a while to get used to the dark and gloomy music but it grew on me as time passes by. There are some catchy tracks like Pharotek, Lone Trooper, Scouting, and The Defense, while there are mood setting pieces such as Time Bomb, Approach, Gloom, and Dusk Hour. There are a few hard hitting tracks like Valves, Mad Rap, and Heroism. Sadly, a few great tracks like Storm Coming and Nod Crush never appeared in the CD.
Overall, the soundtrack did a great job with the sci-fi theme in a fight between the GDI and the Brotherhood of Nod, while you build and control tanks, infantry, and mecha units and simultaneously harvest and deal with the Tiberium scourge affecting the global environment. The add-on disk, Firestorm, added brand new songs that returned to the fast and upbeat feel from previous Command and Conquer titles.
