Liquefaction is the solo dark electro project of Kindel. She's a very talented musician and singer delivering some excellent songs on this Chrysalis CD. She makes dark electronic music that blends elements of industrial and darkwave.

The electronic programming is frantic and noisy, the beats are heavy and the melodies are haunting. Kindel has a soft seductive voice that compliments her music well. She sings along emotionally to the soundscapes. There are also occasions when she yells with distorted anger, but these are rare. There's even acoustic guitar in some of the songs that works great as an extra texture.

This album does a great job of delivering both upbeat and energetic electro pop as well as dark and somber moods. So there's no lack of variety here.

Everything about this CD shows polish. It's very well produced with a high quality sound throughout.

The only thing I dislike about this album are the two out of place experimental noise instrumentals at the end. They don't fit with the rest of the album, and shouldn't be here. But thankfully they are the very last tracks coming in after the three remixes. This way I can just stop the CD after the last remix plays and not even be bothered by them.

The bottom line is that if you like female fronted industrial/dark electro music similar to Android Lust and Collide, this Liquefaction Chrysalis CD is for you.
