Fasciinatiion is The Faint's fourth LP to bear the mark of their distinctive sound, and its lyrical focus is much more broad and can't be boiled down to an abstract noun like "sex" or "birth. The album immediately involves all of the previous concepts with song titles like "Fish in a Womb," "Psycho," and "Get Seduced," as if all three of their previous albums were pointing to a larger, umbrella concept. The resulting focus is a multifarious gloss of modern and futuristic culture that is handled with a definite cynicism.

Fasciinatiion was recorded and mixed at Enamel in Omaha, NE. from August to October 2007, and December through February 2008. Mastering at Sterling Sound.

The Faint play Faint songs, see, and gosh, Fasciinatiion is awful darn Fainty- if a tad minimal and midtempo compared to their last two platters. Ever since they became a "Societal Ideas" band on Danse Macabre, you know you're going to get some clumsy, too-little-too-late jams about the Big Issues: "Get Seduced" decries cretinous nip-slip tabloidery (kind of a writ-large sequel to Macabre's anti-gossip "Let the Poison Spill From Your Throat"), while the earnest protests of "A Battle. But even it- and Clark Baechle's refreshingly very human/analog drumming- can't save an album whose knob-twisty aural flourishes too often sound like a catalog of simulated farts (from pinched whistlers to airy whorls to wet foghorns). Something's not as vital here- the band sounds more committed to the songs, at the expense of the neato spazz-outs.
