First off, It’s not a heavy dance album. I guess you can describe it as more of a synthpoppier futurepop album, pretty lightweight actually. I would have preferred a bit more oomph, depth and dynamics at times. In relation to this, I also have some problems with his sound design, as Unitary is using way too many standard, cliched sounds for my taste. Vocally it’s a bit uneven as well - Johan is using the traditional “dark” singing voice - and his Swenglish pronunciation shines through from time to time.
All things considered though, it’s a pretty sweet album if you look beneath these technicalities, and if you’re into the above mentioned bands I have no doubt you will enjoy this too. Johan has a firm grip on how to create moods, and tracks like “Clarity” and "Closer Apart" for example just oozes with atmosphere. If only he had worked a little more on the production and carving out his own identity.
