Release Date: 05/31/00

Spontaneously full of mirth and dark humor, <B>Almost Human</B> blurs the gap between the 18th and 21st centuries.

Sanctuary: “The dark angel is back!!”   On his year-2000 second album, Lexicon“Voltaire takes a positively Goth subject matter approach, but the music and feel of the songs are decidedly cabaret / goth cabaret.” 

On his debut release, Voltaire satirized the concept of Evil and the many ways it manifests itself in the world. Now, two years later, Voltaire returns with a more lighthearted look at life from the perspective of God’s angelic cast-off, Lucifer, driven by pride to attempt the first failed coup in history.

Singing in a deep, velvety croon with all the passion, sorrow and bitterness of a fallen angel, Voltaire has crafted an album full of haunting Old World melodies and memorable pop tunes that you won’t be able to get out of your head without a guillotine. Always the devilish wordsmith, Voltaire’s songs dance between the sardonic, the heartfelt and the absurd. Whether he is singing about a lost love or a public beheading, Voltaire effervesces in a playfully boisterous mix of wit and old-fashioned merriment.

Spontaneously full of mirth and dark humor,Almost Humanblurs the gap between the 18th and 21st centuries. This is pop music for a parallel universe, where Morrissey is the Queen of England and electricity was never discovered. Cleverly combining classical instruments with present-day song structures, Voltaire’s New Wave band from the Victorian Era cavort through a cabaret suitable for the most contemporary of dance floors.

Meltdown “Almost Humanis clearly the work of a clever but twisted mind stuck somewhere between pop genius and 18th Century lunatic minstrel.”

Dark Entries“Sort of like Morrissey, given a string quartet & cross bred with a bitter gothy version of Weird Al Yankovich, right down to the polka.”

CD in 4-panel digipak with 8-page lyric booklet.
