Skywatchers – ‘The Skywatchers Handbook’ (Twins Of Evil)
by Russ P

I’ve yet to start this review and I’m already getting sidetracked. It all started when I found out that this here CD and this here band are the result of the coming together of I Monster with singer/guitarist Kevin Pearce. And then I started thinking of Oompa-Loompas…



Review by The Music Fix

A nice review of our album by The Music Fix:

The Skywatchers Handbook is a little gem of an album. I liked it immediately upon glancing at the track listing with titles like ‘Dead Flowers For Her’ with its beautiful tristeesse, the funerial ‘Soul Baptist’, and the mournful ‘Rhythm of Ashes’ appealing to my morbid sensibilities. ‘Serves Me Right’ stands out from its gloomy cohorts with its insistent percussion and electronic beats adding vim and vigor to the song’s infectious melody but, overall, these are songs to wallow in sweet misery to. The Skywatchers may not have rewritten the book on moody melancholic music, but they have certainly added some interesting chapters. 7/10
