The first time I listened to this disc, I couldn't remember a single thing about it afterwards. Maybe I just had the volume too low, but it just didn't seem like anything was happening. Now that I'm giving it a closer listen it seems like a little bit more is going on, but not much.
The opening track, "Dystopia", sounds like little more than 3 minutes of random gurgling, static, and "plugging in" type sounds. The next couple pieces after that, however, have some interesting moments. "Brooklyn Fieber" was supposedly inspired by hearing all the different types of music walking around the streets of Brooklyn, and while it doesn't quite sound like reggaeton or hip-hop, there's definitely a more pronounced rhythm to it than some of the other pieces on the album, even if the rhythm is more than a bit fractured and not really anywhere close to being danceable. The next few pieces on this album sort of continue featuring a sort of fractured glitch-rhythm, but then most of the rest of the album goes back to drifting static and buzzing, with an occasional lapse into noise or abstract melody.
This album definitely reminds me of Microstoria, which is cool, but unfortunately it reminds me of the elemends of Microstoria that turn me off to their music. When it's on, though, and when I feel up to giving it the proper amount of attention, it can be fascinating. 6/10 -- Paul Simpson (12 November, 2008)
