Boomkat Product Review:
"Dark One" is Alsace Lorraine's second full-length offering and sees Paul Franke expanding upon the vision of his debut, recruiting Argentinean vocalist Isol on six of the album's thirteen tracks. Isol's whispered tones only serve to further underline Franke's tendencies towards '80s/'90s-style dream pop. The breezy tunefulness of 'As We Fight' kicks the album off in that very fashion, its mixture of classic indie songwriting and low-key electronics and digital effects instantly evoking all that business - in fact, if any further evidence were needed, you need only look towards the end of the disc where you'll notice remixes by none other than Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie and St. Etienne's Ian Catt. Guthrie certainly doesn't dawdle in stamping his hallmark sound on 'The Tall Grass'. From the very first chord you'll be transplanted into that familiar realm of echoing, chorused guitars and shimmering epic ambience. Catt's reworking of 'Call For Papers' is more in-keeping with the straight-ahead tunefulness of the original with only a few minor pieces of extra instrumentation and a general thickening of the production to separate it from the original. Very nice indeed.
