At first, you may not think of Professor Electric's Pandemonium Shadow Show as a great or terrific album. But strange as it is, on its own terms, the album can be considered as such, and much more, if you allow yourself to really listen to this album with all the attention it deserves. With the personal atmosphere of a dilacerating rock’n’roll that celebrates in great style the filth, the dirtiness and the savageness of the genre, this album – and the overall spirit of the project, of course – are conspicuously omniscient of the efficiency demanded by a purely genuine and outcast style, that rescues the soul and the fragile authenticity of a musical alignment that has been marginalized over time, and aspire, in the sidelines of compelling voracious influences, the vivid rebelliousness of truly inhospitable melodies, that incorporates exasperation, decadence, laziness, numbness and wildness as essential sonorous components – omnipotent as well – of a distinctly ferocious work of art.
Despite the fact that Professor Electric's Pandemonium Shadow Show can’t be categorized as a masterpiece, this album is exceedingly peculiar and original. Although the songs are generally slow, this is fundamental not only for the truth of the style per se, but works mainly for the effectiveness of the musical intonations. In this instance, dirty and slow guitar lines elaborate on sonorous barriers the virtual ascendancy of laboriously insane melodies, that acts in an almost frenzy style, although they are paradoxically functioning in a majorly slow and calm sonorous vein.
Professor Electric's Pandemonium Shadow Show is a very interesting, intriguing, delusional, surreal and remarkable musical experience. If you like a more frivolous, condescending and introverted, but at the same time “irresponsible”, free, discreetly distorted and wild styled rock, I highly recommend this album. Be sure you will have a great time listening to it.
