The music just floats in all possible directions, just like it did on their first album. Some of Tim's songs will make you wonder how on earth music can be so heavy and danceable at the same time!

Sound: Paradisiac is the 2nd album from Belgium's Millionaire. They are more well known for their celebrity fans (Matt Bellamy, Josh Homme) rather than their actual music! This album was produced by QOTSA main man Josh Homme. They play a form of desert/stoner rock just with more crazy effects. If you like QOTSA or stoner rock in general, you'll love this! // 9

Lyrics: Okay, it can't be easy for someone to write their songs in a different language to what they speak. But Millionaire pull it off pretty well. The lyrics are average-to-good. Meanwhile the singing is brilliant. Tim Vanhamel has a great way of morphing his voice to suit the music, from pop to rock to ballads. // 8

Overall Impression: This is a very strong all-round album from Millionaire. 'I'm On A High' is one of the best pop-rock songs in years, while 'Streetlife Cherry', 'For A Maid' and 'Alpha Male' are all technically dazzling rock songs. 'Love Is A Sickness' is perhaps the only weak song in the bunch. A band to check out in the future, especially if your a fan of QOTSA. // 8
