PRESS REVIEWS:

“They open with ‘Deconstructing,’ where the industrial baseline and beat guide you to a very catchy chorus. They are direct and to the point even melodically. Harsh attitude is evident in every sense.” –Marija Buljeta, ALTvenger Magazine, UK, Nov. 14, 2016, www.altvenger.com/the-sweetest-condition-we-defy-oblivion-album-review/

"Opener ‘Deconstructing,’ ‘Knock Us Down’ and ‘Unforgiven’ are both musically and lyrically the best songs for me. The other tracks are also of a quite high level. I think ‘We Defy Oblivion’ is well worth your attention. The Sweetest Condition convinced me, now it’s your turn.” –Liesbet Willems, Luminous Dash, Belgium, Nov. 3, 2016, luminousdash.com/portfolio-items/the-sweetest-condition-we-defy-oblivion/

“The first sounds of the opener ‘Deconstructing’ has a typical EBM sequencer loop, the beat however sounds a bit more analog to it. This combination make it already sound interesting. Within the chorus you get surprised by the heavy sounding electro guitars. An awesome opener!” –Thomas Frenken, Electrozombies, Germany, 3.9/5 Stars, Nov. 2, 2016, electrozombies.com/review/sweetest-condition-we-defy-oblivion/

“Songs like ‘Deconstructing’ and ‘Vices’ are so delicious in their construction that they almost redefine the meaning of Alternative music – a plethora of intense images fill my mind each time I hear them: it’s this glorious ejaculation of creativity that causes a form of poetolatry to overcome me.” – His Divine Shadow, 925|Rebellion, South Africa, 925rebellion.com/the-sweetest-condition-we-defy-oblivion/

lyrics

“Deconstructing” ℗ © 2016 The Sweetest Condition
Lyrics by Leslie Irene Benson | Music by Jason Reed Milner

I finally found a coterie I can get into.
A type of family I’ve chosen to belong to.
I’ll be the bullet, if you need to pull the trigger.
You break your back for me, and I’ll bleed for you.

Before we met, I was just a lonely dreamer
now we share every bad behavior.
The synchronicity is starting to scare me.
Now I’m stuck playing follow the leader.

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.
I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!

I’ll be the bullet, if you need to pull the trigger.
I try to follow every order to the letter.
From every sacrifice there comes another scar.
I’ll feed the knife if it’ll make you feel better!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.

I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’m afraid.
You’re afraid.
We’re afraid of
deconstructing!

I’ve become complacent to the way
I feel;
started believing what we have
is real.

I’m consumed by everything you
say and do;
Can’t draw the line
between me and you!
