the BRUTAL, UGLY truth of my FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL life.

1:07 p.m. + 2004-01-12 = and now a brief essay on the darkness...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


i must admit that the darkness is not my type of music. the debut (at least i think it the debut) album was listed in spin's top 40 albums of 2003, which i do, pretty much, esteem since it's highly suspect of paradigmatic credibility. the video for the first (again, at least i think it's the first) single certainly raised my level of interest. AND, the song is catchy.

trés catchy. so incredibly catchy, in fact, that i had to buy the entire cd in order to have the first song of the second side of recently-posted mixtape. but i haven't [until today] given the rest of the album a fair shake.

and now all i have to say, after listening to about 60% of it whilst running about town, it's quite damn good. it's like all those american metal hairbands of the 80s (though more poison-esque pop than guns 'n' roses-esque tripe) that i missed out on thinking heavy metal was far too "satanic" for my jesus/bette midler/the replacements -loving ways. props to an english band trying to bring back 80s american bighair metal... and doing it far more tunefully, might i add. and the lyrics are somewhat better. though, i'm pretty sure track 3 [ growing on me ] is about an std rather than a person... which is slightly creepy... yet it's british, so i find it done in good taste. [oxymoronic; "ode to an std" and "good taste"].

so in conclusion, the darkness is a pleasant surprise for an incredibly ridiculous, spontaneous purchase. perhaps, they are a fleeting phase. but right now, i'm rocking out in my car and wearing ripped jeans. MUST FIND DENIM JACKET. PREFERABLY ACID-WASHED.
