After two Cinema Strange albums, frontman Lucas Lanthier now melts the hearts of his fans with his solo album An Entire Wardrobe Of Doubt And Uncertainty
and creates a masterpiece which dodges all categories - and is therefore even more fascinating. What Lucas Lanthier and his partners such as Andi Sex Gang and his Goth-Cabaret do on An Entire Wardrobe Of Doubt And Uncertainty
can best be described as creepily beautiful. They combine the theatrical music of the 30's (silent movie music and Weimar cabaret) with the Cinema Strange-typical Batcave and relatively simple folk songs laced with insanity. These gloomily-bizarre but minimal arrangements are dominated by Lucas Lanthier's voice which is the true star of this album. Lucas' voice full of all-consuming and unworldly pain manages to impress with a variety and intensity that reminds one of David Tibet and helps him and his music to achieve magic fascination. Surreal and tragicomical lyrics make this wonderful and fragile album just perfect.
Furthermore, The Deadfly Ensemble may even have contributed a potential club hit with the bonus single track "Kriminaltango." The album comes as a limited, luxurious double digipak with special matte varnish and contains a 16 pages booklet and a bonus CD with an exclusive “Behind-The-Scenes Featurette” in the tradition of a radio play. Here Lucas Lanthier grants some very intimate insights into the making of the album. A real milestone beyond categories!
