Perry Farrell - Song Yet To Be Sung - CD Review

Perry Farrell is back with his first album of new material in five years - Song Yet To Be Sung. It's clear that Perry's new DJ'ing hobby has rubbed off on the album which is a blend of electronica, drum 'n bass and guitar.
It's not a totally new sound - you can still recognize Perry's distinct vocal style which hasn't changed from his Jane's Addiction or Porno For Pyros days. He's just playing around with different instrumentation. The album takes you on an audio escapade with fast trance-like grooves to slower more ambient tunes and back up again with danceable tracks.
Song Yet To Be Sung opens with Happy Birthday Jubilee - a heavy drum 'n bass track that sets the tone for the album. My fave tracks on the album are King Z cuz the sounds and chords are very unique sounding. I also really like the happy vibe of To Me, and the very funky Admit I - complete with heavy drumbeats, harmonica and even horns.
Some of the instruments Perry used on his latest album include keyboards, organs, drum machines, percussion instruments, bass, live drums, guitars, piano, horns and even a harp. No, he isn't some crazy one-man band who plays them all by himself - he had other musicians work with him.
So if you're a Jane's Addiction fan or if you just want a change from pop songs that sound the same - check out Song Yet To Be Sung. It's a unique sounding CD with an electronica vibe that'll be sure to wake-up your eardrums.
