I had only heard of and never heard Stellastarr* when they opened for The Raveonettes. I had high expectations and they really lived up to them. I'm not normally a dancer, but I couldn't help myself. They had the entire crowd moving. Yes, the lead singer does sound a lot like Robert Smith, but their music is their own. I can't stop listening to their CD.

I was fortunate to see them play once live, (unlike those of you who've seen them a million times, I have to live on the outskirts of Nowhere) and I have to say that it was a very memorable performance. Jurin balanced Christensen's macabre vocals just perfectly as both guitars provided a solid wall of hypnotic sound complemented by Tannen's dark, brooding bass line. The drummer kept everyone's jaws on the floor for basically the entire show. They don't just create morbid melodies, though. In fact, some of their poppier tunes even sound radio-friendly. Oh yeah. There are the inevitable comparisons between Robert Smith and Shawn Christensen and 'My Coco' is definitely reminiscent of the Cure, but hey, I like the Cure. So if this CD is half as good as their live shows, then, well, I couldn't recommend it enough.
