Album Review: Twin Shadow – Eclipse

eclipse-twin-shadow-510x510

#aotd is Eclipse by Twin Shadow. In Eclipse Twin Shadow tries to replicate the sounds of 80’s radio with bombastic production and melodramatic vocal deliveries. I’m always a sucker for a bit of 80’s pop nostalgia however this album is far less likeable than it should be. Shadow’s voice is too weak to give the melodies he tries to reach justice making many of the songs sound too flat. Also, the over the top production only sounds decent half the time and doesn’t fit in to some of the quieter moments of the album.
