Sister Flo: Tragician's Hat

Sister Flo: Tragician's HatCD, Delphic Recordings 2004

Track list: Four Souls - White Noise - Bill and Jesus (Black) - Shortcuts - September + 2 - Guillotine - Feathers - Tina Turner Shitting Position - They'd Better Build a Dam to Field Island - Nathaniel & Isabel

I enjoy a healthy dose of soft pop music every now and then and Finnish Sister Flo has received high recommendations on that area. I'm not sure if the recommendations are spot on, but I have to agree: White Noise is one of the better songs I've heard this year. The rest of the album is less impressive, but certainly enjoyable. Sister Flo's shimmering, slightly introverted pop music will make many people happy, but I can't see a breakthrough coming quite yet. ***

Twilight Ophera: The End of Halcyon AgeCD, Low Frequency 2004

Track list: Chaosworm - Trapped in Husk of a White Crow - Bow Before My Dark - The End of Halcyon Age - Pseudogods - Gothic Prelude to Capricious Equanimity - Leperthrone - Cruciferous Lunacy - Paragon of Pregnant Night

Twilight Ophera is already eight years old, but The End of Halcyon Age is just their third album. When the music starts, the sources become fairly obvious: the likes of Dimmu Borgir or Cradle of Filth aren't that far from Twilight Ophera's symphonic black metal. I'm not too keen on this one, but the fans of more symphonic black metal should enjoy. ***
