THE YOUNG GODS / Only Heaven (1995)

The Swedes toned down the harsh sampled sounds for this fourth album, and upped the ambient beauty.  It’s too dreamy to be considered industrial, and too frenetic to be chill out so it sits somewhere between the two.  It’s much less diverse than earlier works and if you’re not in the mood for its charm it can even be considered boring.  If however, you are in need of something more circumfluous, more open and ethereal, it can hit the mark about half the time.

Songs of Note: Strangel; Donnez les Esprits

3½ Chilling in the Dream House out of 5
