5.0 out of 5 stars BLIND BUY,WOW! April 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a blind buy for me as it popped up in my recommendations box. I gave it a listen and loved what I heard. I bought it and it sounded 100 times better once I got it home and listened to it on my stereo. I love the vocals and the electronics in her music. There are even a few songs that are very reminiscent of the 80's well IMHO at least. I am a avid listener and collector of music with huge tastes in varieties in music. I have over 2,000 cds ranging from oldies like the ink spots,fleetwood's and skylyners to spanish, country, trip hop,classic rock,heavy metal,alternative and much much more. I was so impressed with this album that I bought another cd from this artist, but wasn't as happy about it as this Journal of Ardency album. The other disc whitch I think was called rapproacher or something along those lines sounded to mainstream and polished up for me. But this album seems more realistic to me if that makes any sense. I highly recommend this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...what was once new again... December 27, 2010
By -Nate-
...Elizabeth Harper of Class Actress describes her music as "decadent dance-music". It certainly is that...and more. Class Actress is producing some of the most "listenable" musical arrangements that are available today. A beautiful tapestry of engaging beats, layered with dynamic synth' and the "silky" vocals of Elizabeth Harper...their music is as much a tribute to the acoustic elements that made the new-wave romantics of the '80s popular, as it is to the dance music of today. A wide cross-section of listeners will likely find something they like in Class Actress' work, and listener's who grew-up with artists such as Joy Division, The Cure, The Smiths and Depechemode, will be transported back in time, when music was fresh and alive...and will fall in-love, all-over-again. Don't miss out on this album, and Class Actress' work, in-general. This is why music is made.

Personally i got hooked from playing a game on the Adultswim website. The whole CD is pure gold! I would HIGHLY recommend. Elizabeth has the voice of an angel, worth getting if for no other reason!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Future Was Now June 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Brooklyn 3-piece 'maybe-dance' miniminalists seem to be 2/3 machine. Any extraneous sounds you may hear are those of guys killing each other over the other 1/3 - irresistible singer Elizabeth Harper or chaining themselves to the mast of a slow-moving ship.It's her flowers wilting on the trancey opener "Careful What You Say" then "Journal Of Ardency" is slower and Cure-ishly crushed by Love. Two mini-returns to this planet are bouncy and rewarding. That voice plus guitar clarity on a Norseland rocker "Let Me Take You Out" and Calypso crooning beckoning from a 60's Luncheonette "Adolescent Heart" are equally inviting. Her pant-inducing plea is able to humanize the 4-note synth and slap drum of "Someone Real" before it canters impassively into a joyful abyss. If forced at butter knife-point to describe this 27 minutes, it would be Interstellar Siren Space-beat.
