Album Review: "Unicorn" by Gunship (7/10)


Producer: Gunship

Synth-wave juggernauts Gunship are back with an album featuring composers John Carpenter and Tyler Bates and musicians Gavin Rossdale and sax slinger Tom Cappello. While “Monster In Paradise” is a face melter, it leans a little too tongue-in-cheek—with Blade-esque b-sides and a literal “money grabbing sequel” to their previous show-stopper, “Tech Noir.” … But just like T2 and Aliens, it’s still pretty dope. Much like ‘86’s Stallone classic Cobra, however, this album’s best material is in its first 20 minutes. – Andy Mesecher
