Angel - FAT POSSUM
FILTER Grade: 72%
By Adam Valeiras on June 13, 2014
It’s only been three years since Pure X’s stunningly hazy Pleasure, yet I’d never be able to guess that that band and this band behind Angel were one and the same. Here, the songs are still draped in some kind of fog, but rather than reveling in the mystery, they are melancholic, tired and stuck in endless repetition. While Pleasure and C.U.T.S. evoke the nature of the dream, Angel, obsessive and occasionally trite, tends to tell rather than show.
