4 stars A step closer to ambient experimental music...

You have to come to this realase with an open mind -yeah, your'e a prog fan so you have it, but I've seen more critics inside the prog fans than in the mainstream music-. The music is full of synths, patches, and a lot of keyboard layers that surrounds Kevin Moore's voice and the result is like a convulsive dream... the moods are kind of sad and cynic, and the music is slow and kind of dreamy...

Is similar to his previous work, Dead Air For Radios, but a lot more electronic, there are less pianos and drums, and there's more synth and drum programing... the robotic voice of Moore give a lot of space to wonder what he's saying through the words... like he's always meaning something else than what he's saying, so is nice to put him attention...

About production and quality, is a tip top... but I guess the difficult part to appriciate is the instrumentation... there's no too much of it... there's good amount of music, but there's no solos or something to show off... pure ambient and all the songs work for that goal... get a proper ambient of this space-ambient music...

Needs a lot of hearing and you most have to be in the mood to this kind of music. It's special to hear with headphones... what a journey... just close your eyes and enjoy... I'm about to do it... just nice...
