Sophia - Deconstruction of the World
Experimental, Industrial For me who am a fan of Sophia this was a long awaited release. 'Deconstruction Of The World' is not a new release, it was released on LP this spring but we had to wait until now to get the CD. And for us who have been waiting for the CD release we are well awarded because there is a bonus song on the CD.

The record starts with "The End Of Ages" which is a flying ambient sound and is followed by "Machine" and "Downfall" that's more typical Sophia sound with mighty drums and industrial sounds. In this way it continues through the record until "Unperturbed" and "Aftermath", last mentioned is a bit softer and got a more classical music sound. From track one till ten there's nothing new since those songs were on the LP and written in 2003, but song eleven, "Depravity" was written in the spring of 2004.

The music feels complete and well done which gives a good impression. I think this CD is great from first second to the very last. Peter Bjärgö and Stefan Eriksson have succeeded in creating a musical masterpiece. The design is also great. Do you have the LP? Buy the CD as well. Don't you have any of these? Buy the CD at least, it's a must!
