Twilight Transmissions = Nine Inch Nails’ Ghosts I-IV + Silent Hill soundtrack
Some questionable decisions were made in the creation of Shadowland’s cover art—everybody would benefit if “Papyrus” were to be eliminated from all future font lists. Beyond the visual aesthetics, this album fares quite well. It’s a well-textured series of electronic soundscapes and beats that would not sound out of place accompanying a modern horror film, game, or a walk through a haunted hospital. Production is clean and balanced, with crisp low-end and little dirt to be heard. There is certainly an audience for this music, and while I feel somewhat lukewarm about it at the moment, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend against listening. –T.H.
