  • Summary: This 80s-esque goth/electro-pop debut album from the Los Angeles band fronted by P. Exeter "Elijah" Blue (the son of Cher and Greg Allman) finally sees an official release, after five years of delays and two separate major label deals.

  1. Deadsy's mix of electronics, death-metal distortion and lugubrious vocals offers something magnificently alien, yet familiar. [Jun 2002, p.69]
  2. It's enough to make you think Deadsy are all a hilariously high-concept prank. Which it is, um, right?

    [Deadsy's] interchangeable keyboard noodling and flat, faintly robotic vocals will excite only those desperate for labelmates Orgy to hurry up and knock out another album. [Jun/Jul 2002, p.104]
  4. Deadsy crosses cheesy new wave keyboards, metal guitars and overwrought gothic drama in a way that just never jells.
  5. If only they didn't sound like a dying Flock of Seagulls. [17 May 2002, p.78]

    Deadsy has a very unique sound, and it has a very different concept than anything that you would hear in music right now.

    The sound of Elijah's voice just makes you quiver because its so beautiful and the music sends shivers down my spine.

    I thought it was really good, the vocals(Elijah)Kick a$$ and the synthizisers(Renn)were really cool!!!!! They have a very different sound from the regular metal/alternative/rock band and thats what makes them cool. And If U don't like them or there music then thats u'r problum. SO GET USE 2 IT!!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    Best album of the millenium. If you don't own this album you're missing out. They sound like nothing out today and if someone says they do i will personally kick your ass. They are not Orgy rip-offs. Deadsy came out before them. Expand

    I strongly feel as though deadsy is oneof the greatest bands of all time. They are completely in their own catagory of greatness and better than anything on the radio.Their music takes me to a far away place that I only wish that everyone else could hear and see what I do. Deadsy is the fucking greatest!!!!!!!!!! Expand

    Deadsy Sux! They sound like that crappy 80's music with their horrible sounding keyboards. The video is really ridiculous if anyone is unfortunate to see it. Fred Durst must be losing his mind to back these guys! Expand
