    Not quite accessible to the unsuspecting ears, Zeros appeals in that inexplicable, morose way, propelled by a certain pleasure entwined with the chaos of the uncertain.

    The changes aren't especially radical, but they're noticeable--and it frequently feels like Vasquez has nudged over a line he might have done better to shy away from.

    The result often sounds claustrophobic, though it's also much fuller than Soft Moon's earlier work.

    The Soft Moon's sophomore album Zeroes is an experimentation in industrial sound that doesn't fully hit the mark.

    All these songs drown together, dissipating like wet Kleenex as soon as they're done.

In a nutshell, this is sort of industrial meets goth, with very little or no vocals. What words there are tend to be mixed right down, and that suits the music perfectly. There are interesting sounds throughout, from chorus heavy bass to howling, distant synths. Everything's been run the effects processor again and again, however that's not a criticism. If there'd been something to distinguish it a bit more from the first record, then the score could have been higher. Having said that though, this is very listen-able to-able, and I'll certainly be in line for the next offering. Full Review »
