'Fade to Grey': Christopher Anton Releases New Version
Ever since Anton's "Your Perfect Tragedy" CD was delivered by my mailman, I have been hooked. His style contains the elements of synthpop that keep me coming back for more. His work, at times, has a rough edge to it... it's not overly polished (a compliment) and it feels almost organic, like rock music. The lyrics make me feel something. I am reminded of Mesh, if only because there is a very masculine, almost angry tone. The beats pound and the voice is in the mix, not on top of it all (like Erasure, or Pet Shop Boys), but rather a part of the music, like its own instrument.
