rating: 7/10
/Altsounds/

/Heathen Harvest/

***

"..dig in and there’s plenty to appreciate here"!
/Bearded magazine/

***

/Premonition magazine/

***

«Housework expresses fear and anger in his voice, as he and PNDC throw up some terrific hooks with their respective skills on guitars and synths».
rating: 7/10
/SIC Magazine/

***

"a skillful and subtle mixture of new-wave, dance and electronic dark-pop/wave with '80s music echoes, but managed in a completely new cybernetic-acoustic and analog version".
Rating: 9/10
/Terapija/

***

"Un album agréable, qui fera mouche aupres des amateurs du genre, une sorte de récréation au milieu des expérimentations dont nous parlons ici habituellement".
Rating:7/10
/ETHERreal/

***

«Anyone looking for a quality electro-pop with enough dark elements certainly will not be disappointed».
rating: 4/5
/Rockline/

***

"a fantastic, beautiful journey full of emotiveness, and sweetness from start to finish.".
/Pan.o.ra.ma./

***

«Intriguing, imaginative and original. Another release that the author can be very proud of».
Rating: 3,5/5
/Muzika hr/

***

"Segundo disco de PNDC está impregnado de melodias cativantes, mas misteriosas, e ao mesmo tempo de um conjunto de afirmações estéticas de personalidade que lhe permitem explorar algumas novas paragens sem, com isso, perderem a facilidade amigável do primeiro contacto, num enquadramento sedutor que se intensifica a cada nova audição".
/O Dominio Dos Deuses/

***

“New dark-wave pop with illustrious melodies, great dark moods with infectious “popular” appeal that is hidden in a layer of experiments”.
rating: 8/10
/Audiotier/

***

«The synthesizers have a haunting quality and the guitars take care to add a warmth that works as a welcome counterpoint, resulting in strangely beautiful songs».
rating: 7/10
/Disagreement/

***

"Intimate atmospheres, electro wave sounds and melodies will seduce your soul".
rating: 4,5/5
/Noisebrigade/

***

"... so this brilliant record is more than welcome. It’s thoughtful, intelligent and bristling with melody, pop sensibility, diversity and inventiveness - a heady mix. If you like electronic music this represents an essential buy".
rating: 4,5/5
/Shakenstir webzine/

***

"Imagine Depeche Mode, Ian Curtis and Freddie Mercury rolled into one and you get the idea. It really does lead to a very strange listen.... If you would like to hear something a little out of the ordinary and dark, then PNDC could be for you... "
rating: 3/5
/The Mag/

***

"A great album, once again... The music is still a fine blend of new wave with a love of the somewhat darker undercurrents"
/Viatl Weekly/

***

«Experimental, futurista, curiosamente dançável, intimista, misterioso, ‘Secondhand Language’ tem várias facetas a explorar, sendo um convite para um universo particular, que nos desperta os sentidos das mais diversas maneiras».
/Projecto cellophane/

***

" this is a classy album that deserves to be heard by a wider audience than its genre would suggest"
rating: 4/5
/Bluesbunny webzine/

***

"Sounding sophisticated and creative without forgetting to be "popular", SECONDHAND LANGUAGE is a good album which you should check.
Rating: 4,5/5
/Chain D.L.K./

***

" PNDC from Serbia teams up again with Greek vocalist/guitarist housework to produce another fine slab of icy electro/dance sounds...".
/Leonard's Lair webzine/

***

"Over all this is a feel good album and we wonder what the future holds".
/mmhmmh music zine/

***

"Since opening the album, it is clear that post-punk/dark-wave/electro/retro etc. finally received adequate packaging"

Track Name: Animal Farm
September won’t survive
It’s pretty head won’t be kept alive
Mine will rest against the door
Won’t be near you anymore

1000 am a place I never cared to visit again
caught in a trap I just keep droning on and on

well, all things grow
maybe blossom or they plass
and in this shot
we’re an animal farm…

so don’t ever break it down gently
we’re endless touch and go
sometimes I think, sometimes it means nothing at all
it really means nothing at all
Track Name: What's The Harm
I speak in slogans
And sleep in fairy tales
So shut me a little
Until I shut me in again

What’s the harm
And where’s the tears
What was I trying
To think again..

The trees are excited
But the trip is plain
Crashed and burned
But the scenery just never changed
Bought you sailors
Bought me silly little girls
But we kept stumbling around
Silly little girls

What’s the harm
And where’s the tears
What was I trying
To think again..
Track Name: The Buzz

Track Name: The Fix
“Bury the dead for fear that they walk to the grave in labor”
here I bear the liquor of the buried dead
some was bled from the sewing machine
some was bled to me in a dream
she carries them on her back as another day begins

“Bury the dead for fear that they walk to the grave in labor”
but after all I carry the grain of the laboring dead
cutting short the nonsense of what forever meant
some journeys are meant to be travelled on heavy legs

and all the medicines won’t help me recollect

dressed to die, now softly alive
dressed to die, with my red veins full of lye
now softly alive
you got me dressed to kill once,
but I’ve been always dressed to die


I took the lazy way down
The metal stairs
From the roof
Through the overgrown garden
And the kitchen door
To her bedroom
And her eyes
Not dead
Her mouth
Not speaking
Not dead
Teeth missing
And warnings spelled

Next year we’ll be less
Or maybe this year
Bankrupt in the real world
Spirit broke in an empty house
Just keep on watching family ghosts
Like there’s time to spend
Or life left to spend

Disapproving clientele
I hurry down the channels
To find my fiction
To find my fix…

/Quote from dylan thomas’s 24/
