IMPORTANT: Wrong track order. Tracks 10 & 11 have switched positions and
Aurovine is yet to fix it.

After the tour de force that \"How the
mighty have fallen\" was, The Kiss That
Took A Trip loosens a lot of tension on
the listener and makes a triumphant
album that recaptures much of the
essential sense of melody found in
earlier works, while still keeping the epic
scope and adventurous nature of the
previous album, coming out of the other
side of the tunnel with a \"best of both
worlds\" effort, but with its own internal

The record is built in a subtle triptych
structure and features the boldest use of
vocals found on a work by The Kiss,
even to the point of putting them in the
forefront or having them from beginning
to end, like in standard pop songs. The
lyrical themes are as abstract as
always, but they gravitate towards much
more personal issues of isolation, and
the need for likeminded people and
finding your own space. To summarize,
the vindication of comfort zones.

The sound is even more diverse than in
preceding albums, with meticulously
well-rounded songs like the first single
\"Vanilla killer\", the new wave
reminiscences of \"Greatest loves are
secret\", the fuzzy post-rock in \"Tidy up
you pig\", the newfound acoustic
simplicity that \"Amplification of the
senses\" releases, the spooky collages
that fight against each other in \"Jackie o
lantern\" and the closing title \"Happy
birthday party monster\", a number
heavy on drones that resembles a film

That doesn't mean the album is devoid
of the things you'd want to expect from
The Kiss That Took A Trip.
\"Electroforest\" contains its fair share of
epics (\"Snowstorm\", \"The thriving
landlords\" and the swirling \"Flower of
gas and smoke\"), instrumental
complexity (\"Jammed drainpipe blues\")
and skyrocketing minimalism
(\"Champions of delay\").
