Left Hand Solution : Shadow Dance



'Shadow Dance' has all the characteristics of an oh so sweet and lovely fairytale that went terribly, TERRIBLY wrong. A fairytale of the darker side perhaps? The bitter sweet melodies mixed with a heavy monotone undercurrent leave you devoid of any hope for a happy ending.

And they are just one part of the tale. Female vocalist Kicki vocals are hardly angelic and she definately is no damsel in distress. Her deep and at times almost out of key vocals fully compliment the music. This album simply leaves you devoid of hope and definately will shatter any ideas of a happy fairytale Disney style.

The only annoyance is the fact that the bonus track is "hidden" behind the last track by about 20 minutes (!!) of silence, which perhaps is fun in the beginning but quickly starts to be annoying. The lyrics from the track 'Solitary Fallen Angel' are perhaps the best illustration of what to expect: "Pretty princess ran away, pretty princess came his way, pretty princess never smiles again."
