Editorial Reviews

The long, slow demise of rock music has endured endless death throes, but the self-titled debut by Crypts seems to clearly seal its fate while heralding the arrival of something far more vibrant and downright dangerous. The Seattle based dark electronic trio blend thick, hazy drone and synth noise with chopped-up hip hop rhythms, forsaking guitars in favor of more unique and sinister sounds.

I can see why some would not like this but I am a fan of Steve's and have been following him since Kill Sadie, and honestly after tracks by These Arms Are Snakes such as 'Lucifer', I would say this direction is not a surprise by any means. 'Bloods' is by far the most dynamic track on this album. (in my opinion.)

I was initially drawn to this album by the artwork, and my tenacity for buying any CD I like the artwork of. What came out of that artwork was not what some punk jumping across dumpsters onto cars led me to expect. Unless that punk has a couple ecstacy up his bum and has somehow managed to be the only kid at the angst driven street rave to get on the album cover.
Now, I enjoy all kinds of music. This particular group, I suppose quite aptly titled, "Crypts", have made an album of dark, gothy, house music, that sincerely hopes you've never heard of dark, gothy, house music before. If you have, I swear to you, there is nothing new or fresh here. If The Ministry put out a house album, this would be it. It's very synthetic music, and very industrial, very distorted, at times wretched and sick, at others, very industrial, very distorted, but with pop-esque undertones with a hip hop-ish backbone. Can't really understand a word of it, don't much care to. The whole CD kinda felt like a rave for people who hate raves and other people, but really dig heroine and sitting alone in dark rooms hating raves and other people.
One entire listen takes about thirty-three minutes, and after five it just runs together into the afore mentioned distorted, synth-laden (actually, it's all synth really) mess of over-production, with no real high points. However, at no point is it worse than it was before. But maybe that's because the song before was forgettable, and come next track you're still pretty much hearing the same thing, albeit the tempo changed, and the words are in new places. Maybe. I stopped paying attention.
If you really, really like the color black, drugs, and dark electronica/house music on the same record, maybe buy it. Or, if you ever thought that The Cure sounded too happy and played too many actual instruments and sang way too well, then this might appeal to you. If not, best avoid it.
Maybe that's what the kid on the cover was doing all along. Oh well.
