5 stars There's a certain style of avant garde music I've seen a few times now where artists will take some of the best of two or more genres and carefully construct tracks so that you are constantly switching from one to another to the other. The genres and their examples will usually be radically different, but the skill of the musicians proves more than enough to pull off, say, prog and industrial together in this fashion. The possibilities are tantalising and infinite. This RIO reunion album is a crowning example of this style, deftly blending genres together like you wouldn't believe, at least until you listen to it and it just... works. This has to be art music at a if not the apex. The aforementioned prog and industrial mixing happens here, and there's so much more too; they have no limits whatsoever. Now it seems like Henry Cow, Art Bears, News From Babel... it was all meant to work up to something like this. I cannot describe how or why this album is excellent beyond what I have already. Just give it a whirl. You'll be in for the most unique treat possible.
