"VICTORIA DE MARE is what I would consider to be an alternative pop album with elements of rock, punk, and industrial/electronics that vary much differently from the bubblegum dance-music that most people now consider to constitute the pop music genre. It’s authentic music, which reminds me of classic Madonna on “Deadly Sting” a track that haunted the confines of my mind for quite a few hours in its subtle catchiness, and “Burning Inside” which comes off just as powerful and features a bit of guitar which is always welcome as far as I’m concerned. The disc even contains guitar solos on tracks like “Oh Why” which is something practically unheard of in current American pop music. Yet it also contains some surprising moments of industrial on “Haunted” which break the boundaries of pop music completely and go right into the realms of synth-rock/darkwave acts like The Dreamside and latter-era Rhea’s Obsession. In short, I’m impressed."
