Guest review by

This one is pure genius...or pure madness!
An outstanding works of art, a new guideline for avantgarde, a milestone of creativity...or just the work of two mad musicians!

Where "The Linear Scaffold" (by far their best work to date, in my humble opinion) gave to the listener the feeling of a well structured avantgarde black-gothic journey, Neonism goes beyond. The schemes are crushed into little meaningless pieces and the listener may easily lose the meaning of the whole opus.

Rating: 8 Quite a good album. Not their best, but the music is pretty crazy and lyrics are quite explicit.

  Interesting stuff for certain. "Backpacka Baba" and "Third Person Plural" are masterpiece songs.
