Album Review

The "Best of" is always a great and a horrible idea at the same time. For a band that had been playing since 1993, like FAITH AND THE MUSE, it could be possible only with a double CD and thirty songs on it. Of course some favourite songs of number of fans will always be missing... That's why it is even a better idea to make musicians themselves to choose the songs they love the most. The fans will get to know the band better. And those who have never heard the band before - will get general impression.

Each of double CD-compilation has an idea behind it. 'The Land' is about rougher dark rock direction, while 'The Sea' includes rather classical, acoustic and ambient tracks. Together they create dark atmosphere of real old school Darkwave club. In general it is classical American Gothic Rock with a beautiful balance, created by two people, two talents, and two lovers.

If FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM and CHRISTIAN DEATH are not only simple words to you - you'd be definitely interested in FAITH AND THE MUSE. Not only the musicians of all the named bands cooperated at different stages of their histories, but they have the same background, and they share the same stage. Yes, Gothic rock and Darkwave is still alive. And it lives in the US. As the duo of William Faith and Monica Richards do everything possible to preserve the genre and to save it in their artistic expressions.
