The new Thom’s work might indeed be his best. Overall, it continues the familiar melancholic/spiritual glitch pop mantra started with Idioteque in 2000. ANIMA does seem to be the most complex, consistent, deep, and holistic so far. It will require many listens to immerse oneself enough.
Also, I was completely unaware that a new album was going to be released soon, after a wonderful score he made to wonderful Suspiria in 2018, even though his upcoming tour seemed suspicious, indeed.
The music is not as complex, as that of some of Bogdan’s inspirations, but the album is pretty enjoyable with a nostalgic 90’s atmosphere. Certainly a satisfying comeback. Have been listening regularly during the last two months.
