4 stars Indeed, album full of experiments, finding new sounds and so on. One track even sounds like Post-Rock (Operative) and is successful in being what is is supposed to be. Other tracks are for example jazzy. Hell, even some lounge music (which I from some unknown reason like, it's this xylophone tune that always pleases me). This one of the few albums where I follow almost every word previous reviewer said. Yes, it is true, tracks follows each other perfectly, it seems like gentle hand done editing (cutting?). Tracks aren't just nice, they're breathtaking and stunning. Because one have to envy how easily it goes, or if you want, flows forward. There's probably some kind of story, but I'm not so good to guess it, as long as there is no singing. Album is rather short with just about 45 minutes long (length of LP with strange coincidence, last song is "L P...").

Even there's one big problem. Some elements of this albums sounds very same. Again, it's very clearly to heard on Operative. It can be annoying at times, but so major flaw.

4(-) for pleasant album. Wait a minute, lounge music ?
