The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from Australian 3 piece "The Unraveling" entitled Everything is Normal. Band members are: Clara (vocals) Dr. Pete (Guitar) & Jono (Keyboards)


The band Dr. Pete & Jono do all compositions, sampling, & plays all musical instrumentation on the CD. Their playing abilities are solid across the board. I would say he possesses intermediate playing abilities with advance songwriting skills. Timing seems to be spot on within the melodic techno pop grooves. Clara's voice manages to deliver effective ear candy that meshes well with the music. The music The music possesses a highly original, ambient-alternative pop rock edge. Lyrical content is a big mystery wrapped up inside an enigma - highly entertaining to say the least. The songs All pieces strike the prefect balance between psychedelic alternative pop, with electronic & Industrial ambience. The songs themselves are clearly above average even flirt with brilliant. The vibe simply put  - this CD will keep you entertained all at the same time. The production The production is professional grade. The good Honorable mentions go out to these 3 for not being afraid to let it all hang out musically. The Unraveling is a highly creative group of artists that are not striving for mass appeal, instead he is clearly being himself musically. In this world of overly corporate entertainment The Unraveling definitely stand out from other artists in a good way. My favorite track on the CD is "Skylights" The bad Not crazy about the mix. It could be better & sounds as clear as mud. At times the CD spreads itself way to thin musically. To many different styles of music, to many directions pulling at you simultaneously. The ugly Nothing to report.


The verdict Everything is Normal by The Unraveling is a very entertaining CD - end of subject. The songwriting - clearly above average & strongly personifies the Human condition.  Like I said earlier, if your in a dark mood, this CD will only put more dark thoughts into your head. Fans of melodic, ambient techno pop will love this one. The Bottom Line If you are looking for a catchy CD to push you even further out into the dance floor - look no further.
