"Anything That Gets You Through the Night" walks the same path as 2007's "Enjoy the Fall" and does so effortlessly. Album opener "Beyond the Gate", with Iris's Reagan Jones on verse vocals, is one of my favourite pieces 2010 so far. It's cool, yet warm - dark, yet accessible. Perfection.
The sound of the album is mainly contemporary, far away from much of the current retro trend, making Edge of Dawn interesting not only for synthpop or EBM fans, but also techno freaks may get a kick out of this gem. Spinath's classy vocals and Schumacher's clever songwriting make them a winning team, much like Seabound whose sound borders that of Edge of Dawn.
Maybe not an album for the summer barbecue parties, but definitely for all other occasions.
