Babysue website has reviewed Recovery, our 5th studio album.
Here's the review: If you loved the keyboard driven techno sounds of dance bands from the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s...chances are the folks in Parralox are gonna knock your socks off. The band is the project created by Australian producer John von Ahlen. This album also includes the vocal talents of Roxy, Ryan Adames, Amii Jackson, and von Ahlen himself. Parralox is already a favorite among lots of music fans around the planet. And after spinning this album we can certainly see why. These groove-oriented tracks absolutely command movement. The songs feature solid 4/4 rhythms with perpetual beats and nice big meaty keyboard sounds. There's a lot to chomp into here...fourteen intoxicating cuts that'll have folks on dance floors around the world sweating up a storm. Our favorite tracks include "In The Night", "Headhunter", "Physical Attraction", and "A Little Respect". This package also includes a nifty art booklet that is just too cool for words.
Documentary Evidence (the unofficial Mute Records website) reviews the latest Parralox album. Here's an extract >>
"Recovery, the fifth album from John von Ahlen's Parralox is a collection of cover versions of tracks by Depeche Mode, Madonna, Blancmange, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys and others, all delivered with the highest possible pop nous by this Australian producer. Initially reticent about the idea of delivering an album of other people's songs, most of the tracks that form Recovery languished, unused, for two years until von Ahlen finally decided that the risk of offering alternative interpretations of some absolutely classic songs was worth it. The result is an album that entirely restores your faith in what pop music can be."
