Fasciination is The Faint's first album in four years and it will be released through their own, newly-formed label, blank.wav which is the first in the band's ten-year history to be written, recorded, produced, art directed and released entirely on their own. Fasciinatiion is an album that draws on many defining facets of The Faint's sound, while remaining completely different from anything else they've put out. Fasciination is an observation on the details of everyday existence and its themes include predictions and the future, tabloid culture, the allure of what may never be and lost childhoods. In certain ways, the album is the most mechanical and precise of the band's career: the vocals sound less human than ever before; the bass lines are more mangled, keyboards spiral and squeal out of control; electronic sounds invade the melodies and the lyrical anxiety and disdain of previous albums pervades almost every song here. The opener "Get Seduced" is The Faint at their best and it's a critique of celebrity culture matched with one of the finest choruses they've ever written. The first single, "The Geeks Were Right," draws on the tenets of futurist literature and sliding, siren-call guitars , "Fulcrum and Lever" marries ambient noise with space references, alienation and a stuttering, flexing beat and "Mirror Error" explores identity and consciousness within its perfect, propulsive electro-pop. The closer "A Battle Hymn for Children" flinches with nervous rhythms against resentment of the future to be inherited and keyboards that sound like flailing voices. Fasciination finds The Faint in total control of their own musical futures and it serves them well.
