The Legendary Pink Dots have created their most commercially appealing album to date with Plutonium Blonde, the follow up to 2006's Your Children Placate You From Premature Graves. Frontman Edward Ka-Spel and his crew capture the listener's imagination with lush and haunting songs. "A World with No Mirrors" is as beautiful and emotionally charged as any Belle & Sebastian song, while "My First Zonee" comments upon our narcissistic love affair with modern technology. "An Arm & A Leg" reminds us of the fragile state of our mental and physical health. Plutonium Blonde is more than just an album; it's an aural and visual treat, a collection of stories that could have very well been written by a modern day Brothers Grimm.
