Customer Reviews

Very good song.
H. Lind
As much as you will hear "The Faint are 80's wannabes," I think that is an extremely superficial observation.
Ari Weiss
I can't remember the last time I got this excited over hearing a band for the first time.

I can't name a band I'm comfortable putting above The Faint in terms of sheer pleasure derived, but in terms of talent, I'm similarly hard-pressed. I believe that there is nothing like this particular album. As much as you will hear "The Faint are 80's wannabes," I think that is an extremely superficial observation. It is not entirely wrong. It is what I thought at first, and it is actually what turned me on to them. It is simply that one gets over that within the first 3 or 4 listens. The people who dismiss them for their 80's imitating have made no attempt to delve into their music. I find it's very easy to dismiss anything without trying to get a feel for it. As I've listened through Danse Macabre an infinite number of times, I now cannot hear the Duran Duran, Cure, Depeche Mode. I love Depeche Mode in their own rite and do feel that they are the biggest influence on The Faint, but by no means do I dwell on their musical likeness when listening to these guys. They are their own entity with lyrics that rival the best storytellers and a "dancebility" more powerful than anything I've ever heard in a club. Listening to The Faint sing incessantly with fervor and style about death and sex throughout this album brings me to laughter. However, their music is far too intense and all-encompassing of my emotions to allow a chuckle during a song. The transitions are too perfectly conceived to get a chance in between songs. And So, I must wait until I've finished listening entirely through the album, for what is most likely the fourth time on repeat, before I can enjoy their unique sense of humor that suits me so well. Every single song is one to turn up extremely loud and go crazy with.Read more ›

Describing is truely impossible with this band...if anyone can explain how these guys sound genre wise be my guest :). I'm from Lincoln, NE which is about 50 miles away from where these guys are from and I'll tell you what they are really neat guys that have the talent that it takes to get big. They started out as a indie band, sounded like another Omaha band Bright Eyes. On their second album they started toying with electronica and brought in some keyboards...it was quite dark and dirty but that is just what I loved about it! With this new record Danse Macabre, the synths are clean and beautiful. With party anthems like "Glass Danse" and a dedication to all the conductors out there "The Conductor" you can't go wrong with this record. (personal fav song is "Total Job") So if you want a record that is different from the rest and gives you the chance to take a bite out of it The Faint are a great place to start! Check these guys live if you can!

As a big synth fan of all types and as a long-time Faint fan, I would say Danse Macabre is still one of the best, if not THE best, cd in my entire electro collection. Their other albums are also definately top runners. To any new listeners who are trying to decide which album to buy first, pick this one up and if you love it (how could you NOT?), then check out their newest release: Wet From Birth. It has some irresistable violins in some songs. Danse Macabre is best for a first listen because of songs like Glass Danse and Let the Poison Spill. They grab you right away and throw you for a high energy whirlwind of purely perfect music that has you bouncing around like a maniac in no time. As you listen to it more, songs like The Conductor, Total Job, and Agenda Suicide make their presence more known. Every song on here except Ballad of a Paralyzed Citizen has at one point been my "favorite song", and after all that, Danse Macabre will go down as one of my all-time favorite CDs. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR ANY MUSIC FAN.

This is one of the best CD's I've bought in years. I originally heard The Faint by accident via listening to Yahoo Launchcast - and the music was so compelling I've gotten all of their CDs.

From what we have seen regarding commercial music - its pretty easy to have a rocked-out beat - but its harder to have lyrics with substance. The Faint's songs on 'Danse Macabre' not only have rocked out beats - but the songwriting for each song is top notch.

'Glass Danse' is a natural standout - but 'Violence' is a piece of storytelling set to music. The rest of the CD is gem-worthy as well. There's not a single song on here that I would skip. this is the first CD I've listened to in years where I've listened to for the *entire* playtime.

If you are looking for some quality music with killer beats - 'Danse Macabre' is the way to go.

They wish they had a band like The Faint. Saddle Creek mainstays, The Faint, had begun dabbling with synths on Media, long before Blank-Wave Arcade & Danse Macabre. However, where Media was angsty-indie-rock that was more miss than hit, and Blank-Wave Arcade was too synthy, squelchy and sexual, Danse Macabre finds its balance. This album is like a new-wave, hard rock, dance, post-punk, Cure meets Depeche Mode in a steel-cage kinda thing. I don't think there are really any "weak" tracks, although some are stronger than others. My favorites are: Agenda Suicide, Let the Poison Spill..., The Conductor, and Ballad of a Paralysed Citizen. Good times.
