Guillaume Labadie aka I Hate Models opens up his long award debut album with "The Beginnning of the End", a typically dramatic affair. Crashing break beats and soaring strings provide a backdrop for an ice queen vocal that soars and drops unexpectedly. What is not unexpected is Labadie's penchant for industrial bangers, which he delivers in style here in the form of "Impossible Love" and "You Are Not Alone". However, Labadie's take on slamming techno is still nuanced: "The Night Is Our Kingdom" deploys steely break beats effectively and on "Romantic Psycho", he uses a
dubbed out, cavernous groove that underpins noisy electronic squiggles.
