“OK, it’s pretty obvious from the title and cover what this is going to sound like, but Lexlabs is at least upfront about it, and overall makes a pretty good fist of capturing that elusive John Carpenter sound. This is his first release, having been making music for only about a year, and it’s a mighty promising start. In fact, somewhere along the line, any notion of his influences weighing too heavily on the music is forgotten and the listener can just enjoy the ride; this is simply electronic with a retro feel to it. Yes, maybe the producer behind it has watched Escape From New York more times than is healthy, but actually that doesn’t matter – Lexlabs is very clear minded in embracing his influences, and he is very successful at creating a sympathetic mood, and let’s face it, he’s much better at this than a number of his contemporaries.”
