Ctrl: Secure The Shadow

Ctrl is just another run of the mill Electro Darkwave act. While the production
and overall feel of the music is high quality, the actual composition is
tedious. The programming is morbid, the lyrics mundane, and the percussion
dreary. There isn't a single musical element on this album that allows Ctrl to
stand out from the thousands of underground electronic acts across the world.
There is no gimmick, concept, or hook. In short, there is nothing on "Secure
The Shadow" that would make anyone want to listen to the album more than once.
If Ctrl hopes to make a name for themselves, they desperately need to find an
indentity. I can't begin to make suggestions as to what that might entail,
because, to be honest, I don't know myself, yet something needs to happen.
