ALBUM TRITON RELEASE: FEBRUARY
18, 2002 REVIEW: MARCH 18, 2002
the time Melrow wrapped up the chorus for the mindblowingly fantastic
"Seconds" was when I realised that the greatness of A Spell
Inside is well conserved. The only outspoken difference from earlier works
is the decision to make "Hit" exclusively electronic. The songs
themselves still buzz and crackle with emotion and still have that unmistakable
gothic quality transmitted through Melrow's warm, yet raw-stained vocals.
A Spell Inside struggled some to get this album released, it was initially
scheduled for a mid 2001 release, but it is, as they say, worth the wait.
"Hit" holds a total of twelve tracks, and the only track that
doesn't hold up to the coolness and electronic delight of the other tracks
is the one not written by solely by Melrow, "2nd Invasion".
"Seconds", a sizzling synthpop tune with a superb chorus to
match, "Crags" with its different transformation moods and the
the enhanced gothic touch of "Revenge" are merely three of many
examples of electronic pop candy on "Hit".
Enough said. Find it and take action!
