Ranked #6 in '
Top 10 Alternative Rock Albums of 2016' by MusicExistence magazine The twelfth (sic) in a series of solo albums by former Real Life keyboardist, George Pappas, this album is for those of love-weary and frost-bitten hearts. The mostly synth-based drive focuses on starkly shifting euphoria and aloofness, each chorus enveloping the listener with continually stronger implementation. While inclusivity factor is gradual, it succeeds just as well, giving equally substantial clout to both male and female perspectives of relationship conflict. read original here

star"I can tell you that European Electronic Cinema is an evocative, emotional release that is warm at times, and melancholic at others, but with a universal genius readily apparent." [JamSphere]

star"This is the kind of album that could only have been produced by a mature artist at the top of their game. Make no mistake, this is music for grown-ups. Grown-ups who appreciate innovation and a musical adventure born out of a fertile imagination generating endless fascinating ideas." [Rated Sound]

s"It’s unusual to find an album of this nature, that allows you to drift off into your own little world, whilst at the same time leaving you with lyrics and melodies swirling around in your mind. It’s a fantastic combination of the two worlds, the two alternate results of effective music." [Stereo Stickman]

star"European Electronic Cinema is a styled production mixing electro-pop and jazzy influences into a delicious reverie trip." [Side-Line]

star"Sterile in Blue’ is one of the finest tracks on the album. The composition is absolutely extraordinary. It’s captivating in every way, and Pappas’ sly poetic imagery supplements the sonic experience so heavily. I absolutely love Alien Skin’s production style. Despite having such depth in its productions, ‘European Electronic Cinema’ feels so accessible." [Tilting Windmill Studios]

star"My Polaroid Friend (Thin White Duke) is the last gasp of the album, but showcases an artist that can do more in a space less than three minutes than many performers could hope to do in thrice that." [NeuFutur]

star"While I can recognize that following Alien Skin into his tripped-out tunes might be quite a voyage for some people – I’d encourage you all to take the ride all the same.  Each of these songs present a real idea and moments that are completely stunning along the way…and everything I’ve heard seems to have something new to offer. 'The Emporer's Tram Girl [for example] I can’t get enough of, all I can do is love and LOVE it, it's a serious winner." [SleepingBag Studios]

star"European Electronic Cinema feels just about perfect and is another addition to his unique sound." [No More Division]

star"This album is one of the most beautiful soundscapes I’ve heard in recent times, sounding somewhat like post-rock evolving to its most beautiful level possible. Add those, oh-so-hypnotizing vocals to complete the sound, and it’s hard to listen to this album and not feel like you are not only listening to something entirely new and unworldly, but also in some entirely unfamiliar awe inspiring landscape." [SoundLooks]

star"All Tomorrow's Cares' only gets better in its execution, particularly in its main lead melody. I had to play it back simply to make sure I wasn’t deceived—that’s how much I was drawn in." [Music Existence]

star"A lot of artists who focus on electronic music tend to get lost in their world of software, synths and quirky sonic manipulations, leaving other important elements behind, such as arrangements, lyrics and song-writing. With a background in other genres, George knows what its like to write a catchy, yet meaningful song, regardless of the instrumental backdrop. The album features a kaleidoscopic and unpredictable approach to electronic music." [The Bandcamp Diaries]
