System Syn - No Sky To Fall
Electro, Futurepop I feel that System Syn's Strangers will be the benchmark for me in every single new release the band releases. I used it as benchmark in my review of their last album All Seasons Pass and I find myself constantly comparing it to 'Strangers'. "Which one has the strongest tracks?", "Which one have the best melodies?", "Which one do I enjoy the most?", and the list of fights between them continue each and every time I listen to their new album 'No Sky To Fall'.

'No Sky To Fall' is a (very) good album, but it falls a bit short compared to 'Strangers' and 'All Seasons Pass'. It does not feel as straight forward as the earlier ones. It's not a difficult album by any means, it's still dark electronic pop, but in some tracks it takes a little more tortuous way to get from start to finish, the opening track "No Sky To Fall" as a good example.

I find myself to mostly enjoy the more straight forward tracks like "The Privileged", "Hide And Seek", "Breath In" and "Lost". The favorite is "Daydream From A Deathbed" and is the track that should be the first single from this album, if one is to be released.

If you enjoy System Syn's material, you should really pick this one up and give it a go. If you are going to listen to System Syn for the first time, I think you figured out by now which album you should check out first, and it would be about time, since the band has been around for more than 10 years by now.
