    The title Pardisiac is about as quirky as the music contained within. Millionaire’s sound is the musical equivalent of a United Colours of Benetton ad, the rock template contains nods to industrial, heavier styles, and dance, topped off with a zaniness that wouldn’t be found within a million miles of United Colours of Benetton. The electronics are well integrated, and vary between melodic and noisy, but always entirely fitting, and showing diverse influences. Melodic, crunchy guitars provide a powerful backbone, above which the effects laden singing fronts each tune with style. Bass and drums form a cohesive driving unit, if both entirely straightforward (something the music requires with its otherwise circuitous twists).

    Everything is topped off with polished production and a good song-writing. While most tracks lack overtly memorable hooks, Pardisiac is a very enjoyable listen; it’s very easy to put on and drift off. This said, the album’s longevity remains to be seen, whether it can maintain the listener’s interest for more than a few weeks depends entirely on how much you like the style. For fans of accessible yet vaguely experimental music, Millionaireare worth checking out.

    7/10
