Celldweller – Uncrowned

(For two weeks ago)

I’m a massive Celldweller fan and upon the re-release of the 10th anniversary of his debut and hearing that there would be new tracks, I was originally not that interested, but then I heard this and I hope Klayton is now kicking himself for not releasing this ten years ago (it probably wouldn’t be the same song at all, but it is excellent regardless). What he foolishly didn’t finish is his original industrial metal-tinged trademark applied to some dark drum ‘n’ bass that hits hard in the right places,¬†with some beautiful electro sparks. The chorus is as infectious as everything he has ever written will be and although I doubt this would’ve been the same song in 2003, the production is as meticulate as come to expect from a perfectionist. For me, this is the nostalgia of listening to the album for the first time (3-4 years ago), but reinstated for 2013 as something smoother, refined but ultimately still beautiful. Will be blitzed for the forseeable future, I’m in love all over again.
