Sporting titles such as "Purity in Pornography," "Waiting for the Hearse," and "My Gorgeous Façade," Omnivoyeur resurrects '80s synth-driven goth for a subculture that seems refreshingly indifferent to the notion that the style may never rise from the ashes. Vocalist Joe Pazo's tongue is too busy stimulating other body parts to go anywhere near his cheek. Sure, Omnivoyeur apes Depeche Mode -- but the offering is an inspired one that isn't driven by nostalgia alone. Considering the cyclical nature of musical trends in the industry -- i.e., the recent barrage of '60s-era garage rock -- the morbid faithful might see the second coming of dark '80s pop after all. Maybe there is a light that never goes out. -- Casey
