Title: Loneliness
Format: 12"
Label: Pale Music
Rated: *****
LONELINESS anticipate Steve Morell's album 'The Life and Death of Jimmy Pheres and his Rise from the Underworld'. This 12" don't function only as an appetizer for the forthcoming album but offers, along with the original version, three remixes that are really worth the purchase. Let's start from the original, it is an acoustic dark ballad which takes the mournful atmospheres of Nick Cave to a new level thanks to deep vocals and a haunting piano/guitar arrangement. The first mix of the track is a doom version made by Einsturzende Neubauten's member Alexander Hacke, who filtered the original vocals making them sound like coming from six feet underground and added a distorted bass guitar during the whole tune. I really enjoyed also the orchestral intermezzo he put on the middle of the song. Punx Soundcheck, instead, did what they do best by making of it an electro guitar driven song with drum machine rhythms and deep bass lines. Luiz Miguilez (Glamour To Kill) made an electronic version which keeps the original flavor of the original but adding pumping rhythms.
