Xymox - Twist Of Shadows download album

To me, Twist of Shadows is both a proof of the creative ability of the band back then and simply one of the best pop records of the late 80's. Clan of Xymox would have deserved the same recognition as bands like The Cure or Depeche Mode and this album is a proof of that, showing they can make seducing pop and still make great and creative music.

This outlook proved to be sadly prophetic. But for a little while, in between the storms of fickle popular tastes, Xymox held their own. This record is a time and place sealed precisely onto disc (or cassette if you had no cd player then, hard to believe I know).

Twist of Shadows is Xymox's third full-length album, released in 1989 on Wing Records (PolyGram) and produced by Peter Walsh (acclaimed producer of Simple Minds's New Gold Dream album). The album captured Billboard's 'Hot Shot Debut" honor and charted in the United States at on the Billboard 200. Twist of Shadows launched several charting singles in the United States. In March 1989 "Obsession" shot up to on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart.

Xymox' (formerly Clan of Xymox. and they have since returned to the "Clan of" moniker) & of Shadows' is truly one of the lost masterpieces of the late 80's. The album was more electronic than their previous, more-Goth releases and combined ominous sounds with moments that were uplifting and hopeful  . Perhaps it is seen as the transition to Xymox' weaker years where they tried to go more directly into the pop mainstream - that's a shame.
