"Shadow of the Beast" - Perseus

"Shadow of the Beast" is disco-edited. It's Disco meets R&B meets Groovy. Or Donna Summer meets Ashanti meets down-tempo.

In the hands of someone less capable than Perseus, the track could have been overdone (or undone). In his hands, it's just right. The song starts subtly. But it never becomes frenetic. Rather it's elegant and ambient. 

Ashanti repeats "and over and over I try ..." I say "and over and over" I listened. The song well illustrates the diversity that comes with disco, house, and electronica. 

From what I've gathered on the internet - and we al know that EVERYTHING the internet says is true - this song is a bit of a comeback for Perseus. If that's the case, it's a worthy comeback indeed.
