embracethevoid_ A hell of a comeback from Imperative Reaction! Dancefloor ready, mature, and emotional synthpop / alternative dance music !!! Favorite track: Like Swine.

jared just when i forgot about them this notification pops up and i take a listen, few minutes later i smack the purchase button. this is the height of more mainstream pop dance music and darker more subversive sounds of ebm and electro. brilliant! Favorite track: When Here Is Somewhere Else.

Anathe Mal It's amazing, has ten years really gone by? You'd never guess it by Ted's voice, there's no room for rust here. It took a few listens to put my finger on why this album felt special, but when I found the heartbeat, I realized it was my own; the lyrics touch on issues that reflect a personal struggle to rectify my honne with a society that prefers an ever constrictive tatemae. Are you hungry for more? I am. Favorite track: Intertwined.

After a decade, Imperative Reaction returns with the long-awaited 7th album "Mirror".
"I’ve never been as happy with an album as I am with this one, & I do think it is the most diverse album we’ve released," says Imperative Reaction's Ted Phelps.
"Mirror," an 11-track magnum opus, sets a distinct new standard for Imperative Reaction's signature blend of emotionally intimate, anthemic electro-EBM.
