Atmospheric synth ballad of epic proportions

Until this song, “Who is the Big Man now,” came across my desk for review, I was unfamiliar with the work of Lost Spider Stephen Lester. Going by his name, I assumed he had an affinity for David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars. When I pushed the play button, I had no idea what I was in for. The tag-line for the song, “A mishmash mash of styles seems a bit Rocky Horror Show,” set the stage for something possibly bizarre, so I braced myself. Keep in mind that I’m a child of the ‘80’s, especially the UK scene from 1979 to 1985. When this song opened with a HUGE keyboard with at least two more in the background and a solid beat courtesy of a drum machine, I was immediately hooked and in heaven. I hear nothing organic in this song, my ears hear three to four synths and an electronic drumbeat. And then the voice comes in, a lovely strong baritone that is very reminiscent of David Bowie. It must be noted that my favourite album of his is ‘Scary Monsters and Super Creeps,’ so things are only getting better. The atmosphere of the song reminds me of 80’s goth, but also the intensity of The Virgin Prunes, early Cure, Attrition and Joy Division, with the added keyboard complexity of second phase Soft Cell. I hear no mishmash, instead I hear a very atmospheric and Gothic synth tune getting better and better. I love the fact that some of the verses feature only voice and percussion (foreboding atmosphere) and the bridge is lovely too, but when we get to the chorus, it’s absolutely monstrous, It’s massive. There are so many things going on it would take multiple listens to figure it completely out. And this is a good thing. I was worried about the song running six minutes, but it’s over before you know it. (Which is good) This track would be fantastic in a film, it sets a mood so well. Graveyards and fog. This is the best thing I have heard in the eleven reviews I have done so far, it’s right up my alley. It’s not a top 40 hit song, but it definitely has a place within the music spectrum. My only complaint is the fade-out, I will never be a fan of fade-outs. End the song on a high note with everything coming together. Other than that, we have a perfect atmospheric synth ballad of epic proportions.
