Android Lust is
the solo industrial music project of Shikhee. She is a very emotional
and talented audio artist and singer. You don't just hear her music,
you feel it.
This release offers a lot of variety throughout the eleven songs
delivered. You're given heavy and aggressive industrial assaults, as
well as more mellower dark and somber moods. All of the ingredients are
present. The songs are created with vastly layered electronic
programming, bass beats, dark melodies and Shikhee's emotionally charged
Shikhee has a unique voice, and it fits perfectly with her music. She
unleashes her words with genuine feeling and pain. But she's able to do
it in extremely addicting songs that you will want to hear over and over
This is not an EBM dance album. So don't go into it expecting that.
While some songs are energetic and catchy enough for the dance floor,
the majority of the CD is artistic and experimental in sound that will
make you think more than move.
There's a good blend of somewhat heavy industrial songs and more toned
down darkwave tracks that keep everything varied from start to finish.
You can tell from listening to this recording that Shikhee poured a lot
of herself into it.
As much as I enjoy straight up dance style industrial, EBM, synth-pop
and future pop music, it's nice to hear something a little more thought
provoking and emotional such as this Android Lust CD for a change. While
there are a few tracks such as "Panic Wrought" that you can
pick out of the crowd and crank loud, this overall album is best listened
to as a whole. You really feel its emotional impact by hearing it from
beginning to end.
