The Key To Gramercy Park is edited on this album.
Deadsy is kind of like its cousin Orgy. Lots and lots of metal and synths. I personally like the synth-heavy tracks on this CD, although some of the other tracks are worth listening to. One interesting thing about Deadsy is that the lyrics are sometimes cryptic, pretentious, or just confusing. They cite history, philosophy, and obscure pop culture. However, it is refreshing to have music that forces you to look up the dictionary or the encyclopedia.

Some notable tracks:
"The Key To Gramercy Park" is loud, heavy, and well, you know. Not very much substance. Lyrics are interesting, though.
"Mansion World" drops into some really synthy sounds. Very "Gothic." This is a good example of darkwave.
"Lake Waramaug" sounds really heavy and dark, but the lyrics are cheerful, and kind of humorous. Also relies heavily on the synths.
"The Elements" is more straight rock than darkwave, but I think it's good nonetheless.
"She Likes Big Words" reminds of me of Duran Duran's "Rio." It's actually a fun song to listen to. Lightens up the mood of the CD.
"Cruella" is a slow one. It's my favorite song from the CD. More rock than darkwave.
"Tom Sawyer" is a nice metal cover of Rush's classic.

If you like gothic music, then you should try out Deadsy. There are lots of synths and electronic elements in the sound, so if you think that rock and electronic shouldn't mix, then you will not like this.
