Amplifier - Trippin’ With Dr Faustus album review
Album six from Amplifier - technicians of spaceship Manchester - is devilishly good
For Amplifier, the story of Faust has never been more relevant. As greed, ego, fear and seduction become the defining trends of the 21st century, the idea of a man selling his soul for absolute power is frighteningly plausible. Trippin’ With Dr Faustus might retell the story as a rock’n’roll fable, but the message behind it resonates strongly: if you make a bargain with the Devil, don’t be surprised if what you want comes at a cost.
