This Dollar Saved My Life At Whitehorse
August 2001
Released: 2001, SPV Records
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Pete

Lucyfire is the side project of Tiamat's Johann Edlund, and what Edlund offers in this project is a pop-goth-rock album. What the hell is that might you ask??? Well, goth-type vocals, with rock lyrics about cars and girls (a no-no in goth songs) and, yipes, melody!!!(another goth no-no). The scary thing is that it actually works!! Where Tiamat is more of a Metal/Pink Floyd-type experience, this sound more like Depeche Mode in happier days or Type O Negative as a mainstream rock band (if you can imagine either). Out of 11 tracks, only one downer, entitled "As Pure As S.I.N." which is a bit too goth for me. Biggest suprise? That would be the cover of ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man", bound to be a hit on the goth dance club scene. All in all, an interesting piece of work which tends to grow on me with repeated listens.
