Die erste Vorladung (I)
Secrets is one of those albums that’s impossible not to fall in love with. From the effortless interchange of rock bravado to melodic dreamscapes that’s made ever so smooth with the aid of Dobson’s heartfelt croon. This is one that you’ll want to keep to yourself, but these secrets deserve to be shared.
From the very first track, Secrets begs you to “Notice Me,” and it’s a command that’s easy to follow. Opening with one tricky riff, the album continues down a path that’s just as hard to predict. Rhythms pitch and tones shift unexpectedly within songs and throughout the album, from the poppy shimmer of “See These Eyes” to the piano-driven tearjerker “New Day.” Underscored throughout by Dobson’s raw yet refined vocals, Secrets is a solid combination of grinding guitar riffs, subterranean bass lines, propulsive beats, and the occasional cascade of synthetic beeps.
