3 stars This record mainly consists in female vocals explorations through scattered, repetitive, clinical & brief sound effects. The ensemble is very original, yes, but if you want to relax, do not listen to this record. The compositions are not really simple and not accessible at all: the music can be seen a bit as a progressive mix of Yello & Art of Noise! There are many piano bits with very good fretless bass, provided by Eberhard Weber, the king of the fretless instrument. Everything is nervous, restless, unequal, and at the same time there are many ambient & subtle arrangements: it gives original textures, but it definitely lacks elegance & fluidity. Kate's emotive & often aggressive voice does not help at all. I rate this record 3.5 stars: I think half the album is very good but the other part is unlistenable, and this does not corresponds to any track in particular: most of the tracks share very good and awful moments. There are too many irritating bits: I cannot uninterruptedly listen to the whole album! This record is definitely her worst one!

Rating: 3.5 stars
