Album Review: Infinite Games by The Black Queen (6/10)

This fresh concoction assembled by Killer Be Killed and Dillinger Escape Plan singer Greg Puciato sees the heavy metal lightning rod dipped in emo tears while floating alongside ‘80s-style synth overloads. Gently throbbing, iridescent notes smartly offer a fresh yet nostalgic take on new wave, but a shortage of indelible moments critically hampers these heartbroken missives. Black Queen’s ephemerality cuts both ways––while their ungraspable nature proves infinitely beguiling, our intrigue falters amid a lack of arrangements to which the listener can easily relate.

Rating: 6/10
