Android Lust - Crater Vol. 1 Review

Updated on March 31, 2018


Android Lust’s new album, CRATER VOL. 1 is a testament to the musicianship of Shikhee. Shikhee IS Android Lust in very much the same way that Trent Reznor is Nine Inch Nails. In fact, the comparison has often been made that Shikhee is a female version of Trent Reznor. However, Shikhee is very much her own person and the music of Android Lust proves it.

CRATER VOL. 1 stands above the crowd in that it is a mostly instrumental album but the tracks that have vocals utilize them as part of the melodies and give a greater sense of the overall picture of the album. From the opening track of “My Kingdom For a God” to the haunting vocals of “I Need To Know” to the apocalyptic tones of “Precipice”, Android Lust have created an album that explores the plight of human nature and draws the listener in to experience the music in ways that most music today simply doesn’t do. Long after listening to this album for the first time, you will find yourself drawn back to the beautifully haunting music. It is definitely an album worth listening to over and over again.

The utilization of the sound of water makes this album particularly interesting in my opinion. Water tapping, water running, water flowing- all of these sounds pervade the album and help to create an ethereal quality that, as you listen, draws you in and pulls you under, bringing a sense of otherworldliness to the album’s experience. The song “Water Whispers” uses the water sounds to full effect and they are reinforced at the end of the album on the wonderful track “Precipice.”

Overall, CRATER VOL. 1 is somewhat of a departure from the previous albums but it is certainly a step in the right direction. Shikhee’s talent and versatility is readily apparent and if you are a fan of Android Lust, then this album makes a great addition to your collection. If you’ve never heard Shikhee before, this album makes a great starting point. Its ethereal quality makes it an ideal gaming soundtrack as well if you are so inclined. My overall recommendation is that you buy this album as soon as possible.
