Then and Again

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Smirking goth crooner Voltaire gets "serious" on Then and Again, an album that showcases his strong songwriting and one of the best sets of pipes that ever wrapped themselves around dark material. Voltaire hasn't totally abandoned humor -- it's hard to imagine he ever could -- but Then and Again isn't as concerned with making Hot Topic customers giggle as it is with delivering full songs. The opening "Crusade," with its father/son subject matter, the non-ironic cover of the Cure's "Lovesong," and the Renaissance throwback "Goodnight Dragonslayer" should be added to any longtime fan's "best-of" list and could actually turn Mom and Dad into Voltaire fanatics.

Acoustic guitars and string quartets make the album all the more approachable, while Voltaire's lyrics get deep and offer vivid pictures of heartbreak, family, and personal reflection. Then and Again is surprisingly warm, organic, and fully formed, and an album worthy of both Peter Murphy and the Incredible String Band. Good times and warm fuzzies for the 21st century goth.

    Of the suck.

    To his credit he did warn you that the cd wasn't his normal MO......on the inside of the cover! He should have put a huge warning on the outside of the label saying this was a wussy ballad cd. I became physically ill when I heard the contents of this cd. The man goes from evil to heart broken to wuss in just three cd's! Very very disapointing.

    Gothic bard - extraordinaire

    His sense of style and humor is fantastic in this disc. If you have heard his previous tracks, "Crusade" offers a pleasant surprise. Be sure to check out "Ooky Spooky" coming in summer of 2006. Any cd you purchase is money well spent.
