    Lost In Alphaville

    Lost In Alphaville is the long awaited and highly anticipated follow-up to The Rentals' landmark albums Return of the Rentals and
    Seven More Minutes.


    When listening to Lost In Alphaville for the first time, one can't
    help but be stoked by the perfect amalgamation of the sonic
    components: the dense wall of Slegr's punishing guitars, the
    primal smack of Carney's drums, Sharp's driving, distorted
    bass and thick buzz of saturated Moog synthesizers -- all
    tempered by Laessig's and Wolfe's beautifully lush voices and
    Chipman's elegant string arrangements serving as an extremely
    rich foundation for the layers and layers of Sharp's detached,
    voyeuristically breathy vocals.


    Sharp created a wall of sound so dense and powerful with
    arrangements that several songs on the album exceed 200
    individually recorded tracks. During this process of arranging,
    Sharp would slip into what he described as "euphoric, psychedelic
    daydreams." Sharp says, "If you can't whip yourself up into a state
    of full-blown rapture while you're creating, I don't really see the
    point of making music."


    Lost In Alphaville is a true sonic achievement, The Rentals' best
    album by a mile, a blissfully righteous storm of broken-up guitars,
    buzz-saw synthesizers, brutally, barbaric rhythms which crumble
    and crackle against a wash of strings, male and female voices-all
    blending into 10 perfectly formed pop songs. Not only have The
    Rentals completely surpassed their first two albums, but Sharp
    just might be putting forward the best work of his entire career.
