Total Entropy


Total Entropy brings together previously-unreleased or limited edition collaborations by Asia Argento with a number of artists, such as Tim Burgess, Toog, Antipop, Brian Molko (Placebo), The Legendary Tigerman, and many others. Poetically direct, vital and glowing, between dream and madness, Total Entropy evokes Argento's impossible love and thirst for life. Alternating orchestral ballads, blues-rock, new wave experimental and minimal techno, including guitars and layered sounds with Asia's deep and intense voice, Total Entropy is difficult to categorize and reveals a talented, charming perspective, between dark and light.
