Nemesis Online

The Legendary Pink Dots

Soleilmoon Recordings

Written and recorded in the space of a month, 1998’s Nemesis Online can sometimes sound it, but that sense of rushed energy and capturing a mood as fears of computer breakdown at the start of 2000 became more public made the album a notable document in the Dots’ story. The partial motto of the release – “Can you sense the zeitgeist?” – can be heard from the start with opening song “Dissonance” touching on trip-hop, but it’s generally an example of their restless range at work once more, whether it be the noisy roil of “Is It Something I Said?” or the gentle “Fate’s Faithful Punchline.”
