Anyone who wishes that Depeche Mode were just a bit harder will love this album.
Philip Sandifer
"The White Beyond" is most certainly a culmination of hard work from all of those involved, and shows advancement and refinement of this incredible group.
CreepyT
I love this CD, the singer's voice, the introspective and intellectual lyrics, the all-around danceability!

ThouShaltNot might be considered a new age version of the Pet Shop Boys, sounding at times akin to Depeche Mode, with lush industrial and heavily layered beats, introspective and philosophical lyrics, and an amazing vocalist. This Philadelphia trio combines modern gothic and electronic music with orchestral ingenuity in an extremely danceable and catchy way! Though this album, as are other works by this group, is indeed a venerable nod to music of the 80's, ThouShaltNot adds their own flare making their musical style seem fresh and modern.
The fact that ThouShaltNot's musical style seeps into so many overlapping genres makes them easily accessible to fans of gothic, industrial, synthpop, and rock music, and this is their most accessible album yet. Not only are these three men excellent musicians, but the lyrical themes found in their music are highly emotional and intellectual in subject matter. Many of the lyrics heard on this album, as in their previous release "The Holiness of Now," are deeply religious and ruminative, forcing the listener to think and not just listen.
Alexx Reed's vocals hardly stray from a mid-range, mellow yet classy spoken word. Jeremy Long's piano, guitars and backing vocals, in addition to Aaron Fuleki's programming and percussion complement Alexx quite well. "The White Beyond" is most certainly a culmination of hard work from all of those involved, and shows advancement and refinement of this incredible group.
Some standout tracks:
Track 1: "Inside of You, In Spite of You" - Amazing opening track with extremely catchy lyrics. Just try to not get this song stuck in your head!
Track 4: "We Could Have Flown Like Pollen" - A great beat and emotional and introspective lyrics.

Goth, as a genre, has been effectively dead in the water for years. On occasion a remarkable release like the Cranes' "Future Songs" or Ikon's "This Quiet Earth" will remind the world of the undead's insistence on, well, not being dead, but by and large, this is a style of music that has played itself out under the weight of its own 80's-indebted history.
Which brings me to ThouShaltNot's "The White Beyond," an album that both frames the darkwave, synthpop, and industrial satellites of gothicism in something of a retro homage, and also aggressively pushes the scene's stagnant sound palette to its limits and beyond, experimenting with a sound that is at once more grandiose and less pretentious than anything in the memory of our collective subculture. This record, tinged with industrial expirementalism and artschool flair, manages to convince the listener -- any listener, goth or not -- of its dire and epic subject matter in a mode almost entirely devoid of irony. Though the song "G.L.M." is a snarky and fleeting nod to electroclash, the 12 other songs use electronics to convey a heartfelt and approachable exegesis on life and death. That no one has really done this since Depeche Mode's "Songs of Faith and Devotion" infuses the entire experience with the feeling of newness.
The best songs on the album are "Inside of You, In Spite of You," "100 Generations," and "Song for the Dying," which find Alexx Reed, Aaron Fuleki, and Jeremy Long at their most vulnerable and least derivative.

I'm puzzled by the reviewer who claims that Holiness of Now is a superior album to this. Although Holiness is certainly a great album, after hearing The White Beyond, it is difficult to see even Holiness's best moments as anything but preludes to this.
The album opens with "Inside of You, In Spite of You," a driving number with lyrics that at once seem to evoke God ("I am the dawn of ages/I am the days seen through/I'm final entropy") and still fit into the genre of crazed stalker song ("I am in your future/I am in your past... I am inside of you, in spite of you"), all without once being offensive or polemical.
From that it moves to "Cardinal Directions," a song that fuses the band's apparent love of blippy 80s synth pop (It's main synth line sounds like it could have been lifted directly from a Mega Man game) with a harder rock sensibility. The first single off the album, and a fine one at that.
From there, we have "Come a Time," in which, faced with the rise of rap rock, ThouShaltNot asks "Why not do Goth Rap?" Upon inventing a genre, they promptly master it with this song, seemingly sung to the devil on the eve of the Apocalypse ("And when you're called to serve, will you have the nerve to do all that you know is wrong / Just to save your skin no matter which side wins, just to know that you were there all along / Is it better to reign in a world of pain then to serve a cause divine?")
Next is "We Could Have Flown Like Pollen," a song which could have been many lesser band's greatst work, but unfortunately comes off as one of this band's weaker songs.
After that, TSN shifts into ballad mode with the understated "The Ocean Is Your Voice.
