METHADRONE - Better Living (Through Chemistry) - CD - Consouling Sounds - 2009

review by: Roberto Martinelli

Methadrone, Craig Pillardís rebirth, impressed us last year as a solid ambient album, and Better Living (Through Chemistry) is an even more surprising progression.

The latest album is more developed in its song writing, yet still retains its initial roots. As good as Better Living is, though, we canít help but note how much it sounds like Jesu. A lot like Jesu, in fact. Like Jesu meets Lycia, with a bit of the dark, semi-acoustic ambient sounds youíd hear on a Glass Throat Recordings release. So while the album is a very fine listen, with excellently crafted tones and performances, and the progress is noted, maybe some progress in a more original direction in the future will yield more relevance. (7/10)
