Christopher Anton’s ‘Fade To Grey’

ChristopherAnton

Singer of the 2000’s re-envisioned Information Society, Christopher Anton, is furthering his solo career with this cover of Visage’s ‘Fade To Grey’.

It’s a tough one to cover, the atmosphere and performance of the original is hard to top (and never has been in my opinion) but Anton does an adequate job here. The track is upbeat and enjoyable but unfortunately seems to suffer the same fate as much of the ‘Modern SynthPop’ scene, particularly those coming from an EBM/Industrial background, in that it seems not to have much understanding of contemporary Electronic music which tends to make the production quite stilted and mediocre. That said, it is a nice cover version and will probably go down a storm at EBM clubs.

  1. I have to disagree with you. I thought Chris did an amazing job. His voice is phenomenal and his version has a cool electro-industrial beat that gives us a taste of the past with some flavor of the future. I am so loving it!

  2. I am in agreement with the reviewer on the fact, Visage’s original Fade To Grey is hard to top, being a fan of Visage myself, although I have to disagree…Anton & Tutone succeeded in producing an amazing dance version of this classic song. It has already become a popular dance club favorite around the world!

  3. Well… I simply do not agree with you. I think that Christopher Anton & Co. did an excellent job covering that fantastic Visage single “Fade To Grey”. When I heard it for the first time I was quite amazed that they succeeded perfectly in paying tribute to this 30 years old classic. It still has that 80’s feel (that I like so much) but they also managed to turn it into a modern electronic dance track! No wonder it went to #1 in the Pmachinery Top 30 and stayed there for a couple of weeks!

    It sure as hell will go down a sorm in EBM clubs all over the world!
