Neptune, "Silent Partner"--Call It What You Want!
Robotic electronics, insistent drums and percussion, ultra-postshred guitar work, attitudinal vocals, Neptune is up to something that is not easily classified, and all the better for that. That is, on their album Silent Partner (Northern Spy). It's electric, somewhat industrial, obsessive, truculant, and salvage shop space-aged, scrap metal for a Blade Runner world. This is the future arrived, in ways that Eisenhower and Kennedy did not forsee. You know about that future. You are in it. Here's its music.
So what more is there to say? There is originality.
