I must say, I’ve not always been a big fan of The Internet. I liked songs here and there but never really got to that point where I could say that I fuck with their music heavy. But after this album you can definitely count me in as a fan. I’ve officially been sucked into the whirlwind of soul and acid- jazz that this band exudes.
“Ego Death” starts on an edgier, more confident note with the song “Get Away” with it’s extra sexual and direct lyrics. I’m a super R&B fan, but the really really soulful kind, so I tend to listen to more 90’s stuff. I just feel like the music was realer, and more straight forward back then. With the Internet , they kind of bring back that feeling , they don’t over-complicate their lyrics, and Syd’s delicate and sensuous voice relaxes your nerves and creates a wonderful sultry atmosphere. In my opinion the best part of their music, is the instrumentation , I mean , they are a band! The ambiance induced by the blend of each instrument is overwhelming and impressive.
