2012 release, the third album from the Canadian Electronic/Experimental band, the first of their albums to be produced entirely by band member Ethan Kath. ''We wanted the album to sound like a completely different and new experience'' says Ethan. ''We'd limit ourselves to one take on each song because we believe the first take is the rawest expression of an idea,'' By ditching their old synthesizers and keyboards used on I and II, Ethan enforced a 'strictly no computers' rule in the studio and began recording everything directly to tape. Together the Canadian duo has conjured up a collection of songs that are as raw as they are well rounded. As '(Ill)' unfolds, each track will take you to greater heights and equal lows, as you enter the sometimes plagued and often polarized world that is Crystal Castles. Recorded mostly in Warsaw and Berlin, the album also boasts the haunting and euphoric 5-minute mind-bender 'Plague' that quickly caused a cyber-storm amongst fans and media when the band unveiled it via their soundcloud page this summer.
I think that this music is hard to explain but it definitely has something to do with Goth. Experimental, dark, wavey, at times kinda pop......but always Goth sounding. Read morePublished 3 months ago by CRAZOTOLOGY
I like this band and I don't know why. I like this album and I don't know why. I guess it's a little like reciting poetry in an insane asylum and I love it.Published 5 months ago by Donna
Crystal Castles perhaps is becoming one of the newest electro-clash frontiersPublished 11 months ago by Davide Sorgato
This is my favorite Crystal Castles album yet. It's kind of dark and moody compared to their first album... but it's got great hooks. Awesome.Published 12 months ago by Haze Reid
One of my favorite album I have ever bought. I've read in interviews with the band that they recorded this entire album onto tape instead of on computer. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Clayton
5 stars because they're such a good band.
The CD was new (of course) and it arrived on time.
