||When I first started listening to "Redemption"
I didn't know what to expect. The intro to this disk is from a Simpson's
episode, so I wasn't sure if their music was going to serious or not.
Braindance is definitely
serious about their music. They have some pretty good leads, and quite
a bit of feeling in their music. The style of music that Braindance
plays is unique. They consider themselves progressive darkwave. That
is probably the best way to describe their music. You could also say
it is similar to Type O Negative with some progressive rock and darkwave
influences. You can feel the atmosphere in some of the songs, especially
in one of my favorite songs "Return." After listening to
this album a few times I realized that there are really no bad songs,
and pretty much all songs are at least decent. A few of this songs
include "Refracture," "Resurrection," and the
title track "Redemption." An interesting aspect of the song
titles is that they all start with a "Re." Braindance has
a total of eleven tracks on this disk that last sixty-four minutes
plus. Among these tracks is an interesting intermission type song
that kind of splits the album into two parts. "Reduction"
is a track that is made from a mix of excerpts from movies, tv shows,
sports and other clips. It is all put together as if it was telling
a story. It is a unique track, and with all the sound clips they use
throughout the album, "Reduction" also ties the album together
as a whole. I believe Braindance has something brewing here that might
take off in time, but only time will tell.
