"Becoming Aware" CD
PO Box 20088
Kalamazoo MI 49019
May 5 - 11 2003
is the perfect record for curious listeners looking to get
a taste of the goth genre. Fantastic in it's melodic structure
and accessibility, Becoming Aware offers a simple, exciting
glimpse at female-fronted goth music. It's the type of record
that's an asset to its genre because it gets new audiences interested
in the music.
And part of that allure may be because Unfinished Thought's
style isn't purely goth. There are elements of electronica,
rock, and even pop present on Becoming Aware - and these
influences greatly help to make the
album more accessible. Songs like "Xoe"
and "Voices" are very goth-like, but perhaps a little too
catchy for diehard fans. Meanwhile, "Reflection" is an
almost Portishead-esque pop number.
Altogether, Becoming Aware is recommended for both goth fans
and those just wanting to give the genre a try. Energetic,
daring, and passionate about their music, Unfinished Thought
have taken the genre to a whole new level.
