Chris Corner from the Sneaker Pimps is Iamx, - at his third chapter here, - it's total patiné hard-core club-oriented music, epic and blasting through loud volumes and walls of electronic samples, with an after taste of self-satisfied decadence and teenage distress.
Hard drumming like Nine Inch Nails, high pitched vocals, - dangerously melodious, - synthpop partitures, - Think of England and I am Terrified look like meant to be dancefloor top hits - often going even too much superlative, while the unexpected waltz of The Stupid and the Proud is pleasantly and differently hypnotic, almost poetic (but please, no more god-is-dead songs, thank you).
Maybe this guy might be considered as a modern Ziggy Sturdust, but notwithstanding the undoubtful elegance and an enviable sound production which make this album perfect according the rules of its genre, once out of the related whole glam electro pop path all sounds too much déjà vu to be memorable, - You leave the disco behind and be back home.

Chris Corner degli Sneaker Pimps è Iamx, - al suo terzo capitolo qui. E' musica totalmente patinata e confezionata per i club, epica ed esplosiva lungo volumi alti e muri di sample elettronici, con un retrogusto di compiaciuta decadenza e angoscia adolescenziale.
Batteria picchia duro stile Nine Inch Nails, voce che finisce spesso in acuto, - questa pericolosamente melodiosa, - scrittura synthpop, -  Think of England e I am Terrified sembrano studiate a tavolino per scalare le classifiche dancefloor, - si spingono anche troppo nel superlativo, mentre invece il waltz inatteso di The Stupid and the Proud è piacevolmente e differente ipnotico, quasi poetico (per quanto non se ne può più di sentir ancora cantare god is dead).
Forse questo ragazzo potrebbe essere considerato un moderno Ziggy Sturdust, ma nonostante l'indubbia eleganza e l'invidiabile produzione dei suoni - cose che rendono questo album perfetto in accordo ai canoni del genere - una volta usciti dal giro glam electro pop, tutto suona già sentito, e poco memorabile, - si lascia la discoteca alle spalle e si ritorna a casa.
