Neither/Neither World is essentially a solo project of Wendy Van Dusen albeit
this particular album has several guest musicians. For the most part the vocal
work of Ms. Van Dusen is the entire album. Each of the tracks does indeed
contain music but almost without mention it is only a minimal addition at best.
Instead her voice and lyrics create the mood at atmosphere of each piece with
the bare minimum of music serving only to fill out remainder of the track.
Lyrically the album deals with a wide variety of counter culture concepts
ranging from vampires, satanism, and murder to more common themes of love and
hate. However, the one singular theme of the album does indeed seem to be the
total corruption of the soul and the eventual decline into the fiery inferno.
While definitely a slight disturbed story line is it nothing new about it and
in the end the album seems to be lacking a certain integral component that
would make it work. I'm not quite exactly sure what that might be so perhaps
the ultimate decision should be left up to audience to decide.
