This Swedish industrial rocker's self-titled first album is somewhat of a mystery. On one side Tim Skold has a tendency to overdo it: "its dark and I'm lonely/so cold so alone" to the point were you question his sincerity. Is he really this bummed out, or is he just trying to tap into the incredibly dark overtones that Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor explores so deeply in his own brand of industrial music? But Skold is likeable. He's got talent, and his music, though cliché at times, is almost always interesting, and he knows how to rock which some people would say is all you need.
He is in KMFDM now and this will probably be all we hear from him solo for a long time; he and Sascha (of KMFDM) really seemed to have hit it off and will probably be working together quite a lot. But anyway, good album -- not really groundbreaking, but it doesn't fall on its ass either.
