a massively ambitious & varied work, ‘Total Strife Forever’ successfully incorporates ambient passages, neo-classical episodes & Detroit techno through to effervescent melodic electronic pop songs.

amazingly, william doyle manages to tie all these elements together to achieve a coherence, natural flow & progression throughout this set of inspired & brightly burning compositions. "he's confident enough to leap from out-&-out pop to icy ambience to pounding acid house to unsettling experimentation....a rare, idiosyncratic talent" - guardian, "magnificent...from the crisp & hypnotic arpeggiated synths of opener 'Glitter Recession', to 'Midnight Koto' where tender harmonics disperse across a landscape of juddering static drone"  9/10 - drowned in sound.

*** 2cd version includes an epic 54 minute imagined soundtrack for the 1916 silent film ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ (previously available as a limited bonus disc that came with initial copies of the album) ***
