Halo Effect - The Fourth Zone
Futurepop, Synthpop After the intro called "Scram", Italian Halo Effect continues with the very And One inspired "Hammer The Gear" that also was the single from this second studio album called 'The Fourth Zone'. Not only is this one of my favourite tracks on this album, "Hammer The Gear" also gives you an direct indication of the fact that this is a very well-produced album.

In a mix between electro, futurepop and classic synthpop, Halo Effect really manages to impress me with their work. Sometimes the soundscapes and song structure reminds me of Swedish Elegant Machinery during their most successful period, especially in the ninth track "It was nothing".

My absolute favourites are the three tracks that follow each other, "Drain", "Hidden Place" and "Funeral". Very well produced and touching, just like the rest of the album.

The band Halo Effect is new to me, but they sure left a mark on me. I will keep a close watch on these Romans; I suggest you do the same.
