These songs are the result of two unique musical collaborations, and both succeed brilliantly at exploring the farther fringes of alternative pop driven by synthesizer technology, detached alienation, and the longings of a man in limbo. The sound of this release calls to mind The Cure, New Order, and Depeche Mode. The moody "For Saturday" is a stand-out smash, but also check out the Rob Costin collaborations, "Magnificent Man," "The Lover's Tent," and "Carry Me." The ease, power and poetic language of this release are pure genius, and Robertson may just be our own little psychedelic-era Bob Dylan, a poet and prophet of queerdom.
