Right off the back, WhoMadeWho lets you know that Through The Walls will not be the same catchy, instantly accessible material of his previous works. Things are slowed down here, almost to a crawl, there are wide open spaces throughout songs and the sounds are almost atmospheric in nature – he’s crafted a truly ethereal ambiance here. There are a few moments of more traditional pop reaches but for the most part the album is all about deep contemplation and it’s not hard to imagine this being the soundtrack to someone’s out-of-body experience zooming through the cosmos. I’m not sure if WhoMadeWho was aided by any psychedelics in the creation of Through The Walls but he managed to craft one trippy musical journey, and I can dig it.
“Run baby run
We’re leaving nothing undone
You are my only mission
Don’t climb the vision
You know we’ve only just begun”
