Do Na I saw the clip for Light Mind and got the vibe, and knew this album was something special. Unique for our days, definite 80s new wave feel, but somehow fresh. Cool stuff! Favorite track: Light Mind.

Neil Grace I love this record! Not my standard fayre but done to perfection. Beautiful arrangements with repetitive, almost hypnotic rhythms.
Although the lyrics border on nonsensical to me it will be a staple of my musical arsenal for a long time.
Dark synth-laden pop and fairly gothic in parts but ultimately very catchy. Good for evening driving if you ask me! Favorite track: Light Mind.

kreuztot Going rounds on the 80s memory lane. Favorite track: Sulfur.

leepomeroy If Depeche Mode now come across as your usual, comfortable, stadium-friendly firmament of the establishment, then these guys certainly hark back to the hedonistic early 90s era of that band. But with some (dare I say it?) proggy and doom metal chops thrown into the mix. I applaud.

The cenobite tamed Megastructural reign The Parsifal Gate Realtime has ceased At the Godhead’s feet Determining the separators Where did you get the notion that time could turn into space? Reclothing the emperor The multiverse manifest in hypostasis Libera me Domine Uh huh Single living organism Hologrammatic lens Malice information Scanning the curve of an eggshell moon Penetration of the medium Libera me Domine Uh huh
2.
You could be like the sun You could be like the rain Everywhere at once Don’t reminisce your views Communion is to touch So why subject it too? All things choose to fall away Right thoughts lead to light mind Seeking the master She who travels all day long Without ever leaving home She studied rejection She studied the negative She studied it all But the inversions intoned She says… I let go of the law I let go of economics I let go of control I let go of the common good
3.
Night Sides 04:48
Night signs on the carriageway Crystal stains on the windowpane White hair follicles dilate She hears the morning news A lifetime to ignore the waves Her unbridled mind On the weeping way Spirals fly on the visible plane She said… When I was young I used to hear things That were being said Miles away Weeks away I was the only one I was alone I often thought myself someone else At the same time In a different place Why is that so? How can that be? It was an unfair invasion! She fears her own power She never recognised her ability to heal

Sulfur 05:32
A liquid form Encased in gold Inside a rock upon the cliff Facing the echoing caves The guard’s a witch Deservishing round a black square Bored of the air The taste of green The scent of Sulfur Alone I made a door to which I found no key Alone I made a key to which I found no door
5.
Gaudy hotel pattern Makes you feel secure in nostalgic immersion The jewel of the lotus Multi-storey carping Metallic erosion A universal destiny Spinning crazily back through time to the Seventeen Nineties An arcing curiosity From the tempting dessert menu variety Some details of his history and a wealth of life in good facilities Using local materials Pick a part and get a job in the ministry Perambulating river Taking note of the cherubic faces Always looking for kindness Narrative uniformity in the archetypal
6.
Dreamours 03:51
It’s time to turn the lights out Turn off the radio And focus on the shadows and the sounds Of the man outside your window Vaporous and lost and crying out... Won’t you let me in? It’s so cold I might die Echoing around the room as if he were inside Frozen in the place you lie Your mother is asleep She is most devoted to the voice you hear so deep... We’ll offer to take you down Down where there’s no light Over and underground Chasing the tigers around An ocean locked inside Burning up the air Lost but without a care The shining point where all lines intersect What does the water teach? It’s nothing you won’t find at home Attached to nothing other that itself It harbours the life within Immeasurable bodies growing smaller Until nothing’s left Except the moment
7.
In a four cornered enclosure Winter seems to be much longer Made across the heavy water That you ponder into light In the morning you slip under The veil of illusion Feathered dust At what hour was the owner Allowing praise to affect Your better judgement again And again and again Why the acrid embers? Eyes made sore Paying the blackened toll Drinking the liquid gold
8.
Angelix 08:47
Quite simple Your head The rest of your body Your temples Every time you speak So you can imagine All this work Find it in yourself Find an opening Rest and hold Quite simple End

about

Dark synthpop duo MIRACLE return with their sophomore full-length and first album in over five years, The Strife Of Love In A Dream. Consisting of Steve Moore, one half of the progressive synth-rock duo Zombi and composer of contemporary horror soundtracks including The Guest and Mayhem plus vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel O’Sullivan, known for his work with a myriad of art rock luminaries including Ulver, Grumbling Fur, Æthenor, Sunn O))), Guapo, Mothlite and This Is Not This Heat plus special guest drums from A.E. Paterra (Zombi, Majeure, Maserati), MIRACLE play moody, stylish, synth-driven pop that evokes vintage Depeche Mode at their most dramatic heights. Self-recorded over a four year span in London, New York and Pittsburgh and mastered by Matt Colton (Aphex Twin, Caribou, Flume) at Alchemy Mastering, London, The Strife Of Love In A Dream is an incredible display of synthpop composition, infectious arrangements and gothic lyricism that is nothing short of a modern masterpiece.
