Hurray, I can finally listen to this new masterwork! Just as Jan Dewulf stated in his interview: "this album is very worked out, going very deep". I love his sweet voice and I am dreaming away, floating on the sound waves. With this CD, Diskonnekted can easily be played on commercial radio's. But I feel they are slipping away, just as sung in the the first song "Yesteryears". I love the retro guitar sound! It really sounds like a sad flashback. We even get a little drum'n bass with "Conspiracy". Nice lyrics too. I'm not gonna give any comment on "Justify", because the lyrics are explicit enough. Just listen to it and maybe you'll also be interested in testing out the dance value on a dancefloor? "Razorsharpshooter" is a real hit for rave parties, a well built song! Move it! "Dark place" (ft GNY) sounds very romantic, but the world is such a dark place... The beats remind me of another Belgium band: The Subs. "Empy" is a dark ballad and fits well in here. Followed by 3 smashers "Sunblind", "Little Darkness" and for sure "Neverland" (love the retro LP sound and heavy guitars). "Dalloway's Journey" (ft Lemongrazz) is a softie, dark ambient, with a very commercial sound. "Tunnelvision" ends slowly, floating out of the tunnel, into the direction of the repeat button. So go ahead folks!
