Radio friendly unit shifter
On a label that has always been associated with extreme metal bands during it's history, the exception to the rule is Thine. Imagine if you can, and goth pop version of Morrissey combined with The Cure, Brit pop and rock influences as well and you'll get a bit of an idea as to what to expect from this release.
The songs here on their second album are quite catchy in a way that you wouldn't normally associate with goth music. They could very well get radio play if this album was pushed in that direction. The melody lines are very distinguishable, and are backed by almost happy sounding chord progressions as opposed to the typically minor progressions that are common in both goth and metal music in general. A couple of times, the album begins to sound a little bit the same as it moves from track to track. However, songs such as the opener Best Kept Secret, the very catchy title track, and Contact Point manage to keep the album moving along nicely.
In Therapy is a good album that was quite surprising upon first listen. Fans of any of the artists or styles mentioned above should take some time to listen to this album. It might not be the type of album that you'd buy without hearing some of it first, but those who take the time to check it out will see that it was worth the effort.
