Spindleweed I saw Jordan live only once before she quit the scene, and was blown away. This album will always be special to me.
I miss you! Favorite track: Safety in Silence (Paralysed).

Russell Whyman I just got back from the Whitby Goth Weekend where I saw Jordan perform. She was phenomenal. She records sounds in loops and layers them to form the backdrop to her vocals. It was amazing the power one woman with an acoustic guitar could produce just by layering sounds. If you get the chance you have to see her live.

This album features more instrumentation and is more electronic than her solo performances. Dark, powerful and as original as ever. More 'Dark Wave' music for my collection. Favorite track: Bite (The Hand that Feeds).

Michael Reilly This album slowly crackles with a brooding depth of feeling and intensity – emotion that drives each track into dark exposure. Alternative pop meets gothic industrial, with a real sense of purpose and impressive presence. Favorite track: The Gentleman.

This is the line that I'm gonna take this is the law - there's no give and take anymore we are the world we make we are what we allow Rule one: don't beleive in them cos rule two: they don't beleive in you rule three: trust is everything: dont give out easily, don't let it in just do what you're told you'll do what you're told this is the wish I pretend to use this is the ruse of my faith in you letting in the sun, I'm letting two of us be two of one and you'll do what you're told you'll do what you're told Step one: use important words step two: pretend that what you heard is three: deep and meaningful and four: lust, love, are political you'll do what you're told you'll do what you're told cos we know what's good for you we know every sad little thing about you everything the shameful, the untrue we have you, we have you and you'll do what you're told you'll do what you're told

The Player 04:13
You lit a candle in the hope the heat would fill the void the hope that light would find some substance in the dark where all those shaking fading walls should hold your safely balanced words should reflect a smile whose warmth disguises the abyss belies a traitors twisted bloodied tongue and it says: Curse you. Curse you. and you will feed us little deaths that serve to mark our fading, fleeting hearts until we breathe, and nothing more, until we shine like mirrored glass reflect your artifice and art and it says: curse you. Curse you And what is given falls away with speed akin to fading light you shine so pale, approaching night I give a smile, a smile you might just recognise a mirror, guise, a worn disguise my open arms, my lovers lies my open mouth, my empty eyes they say: Curse you. Curse you.

In a world with no heroes I wear shades of pale and the fragile airs my mother showed me. I'll show you reflections while you play with all your dissafections and reach for your face painted on me. Your canvas in waiting I'm fresh for all these pretty things you show for yourself when you are hunting. You smile, try to hold me I`m cold too the touch but still you want me and how could I have lived without your making me. Hands peel at clothes your head turns, coy, we pose and dance, I show unprecious things, parades of glamour, fame and lies and dreams, your mouth says: fuck me. fuck me. Your lips moving slow, the taste of you alone, of glass and bone an empty world, an empty hole just you and me and us and we and I, I, I, I, I. fuck me. fuck me.

It was a long slow walk through shadows in halls wooden shelves pushing up to a ceiling overworn Oh you learned what is said and you knew how to leave your doors breathing open; pull the loneliness out of me and be a gentleman be a gentleman, for me. And the brushing of hands that move over faces facades over eyes that flash precious airs and graces the flicker of tongues over stories worn old as the rising of lust opens out to the cold be a gentleman please be a gentleman for me. Sing for me - tales taller than God hold me down by the throat; taste the blood on our tongues I will land on the bones and the hair and the flesh of the ones from before me: the ones for whose deaths you can be a gentleman be a gentleman, for me I will flinch at your sting, but I want to feel the pain that will blot out the titles of books where you learned how your mimicry fools; makes us hunter and game fills the void of our bottomless needing in vain oh be a gentleman be a gentleman for me.

Bite (the hand that feeds) (c) Jordan Reyne 2013 I met you down the rabbit hole at the end of resurrection road that cul de sac of shambling bodies staring through the empty in me. I asked you what you came here for you answered 'mirror on the wall, to save yourself at all dont just pretend to hear me' 'Bite', you said, 'learn to bite the hand that feeds you think you know where borders lead? they'll drink as much as you can bleed if you have the teeth then do the deed bite the hand, bite the hand that feeds' you waved your hand and turned to go and said 'the choice is yourts and yours alone' that there is no exit you just choose to go or stay, either way by now you pay i stumbled pas the empty eyes the bodies piled up grey as sky you said 'dont follow, dont do what i do, run if you still have the strength to' 'bite' you said ' bite the hand that feeds' etc Dear God, dear lord: you never answered when i called dear god, dear lord: youre just a whisper under the roar dear god, dear lord: a rumour theres no substance for a nothing when the rush is gone bite the hand, bite the hand that feeds. feel the falling, endless falling the voiceless bottomless, the calling siren song to promise flight so fleeting in this fading light with hands over my ears i run the shadows loom and fall undone all tongues and mouths and blackened arms, your hold you own out, open palm and say bite. bite the hand that feeds.

REVIEWS

"Expressive, many sided and original. The Annihilation Seqeuence is as magical and engaging as it is shocking. Listen to it repeatedly" La Magic Box (France)

"Jordan Reyne has achieved something truly self-contained and original here, it’s an impressive achievement, and this album represents a freedom that thankfully can still be found in modern, forward-thinking music. A must-buy!" Reflections of Darkness (UK)

"Industrial sounds, noises and samples, blending EBM with Dark Wave and layering guitars and voices to a dense and intensive sound cosmos. Once again Jordan displays a wide range of musical and vocal skills and abilities. She is truly one kind of a talented and creative musician, exploring new sounds... exceptionally impressive, thrilling and unique" Nocturnal Hall (Germany)
