3 stars Vibraphone and loose drumming with hushed vocals and light brass provide a light but gloomy atmosphere before a darker synthesizer lead comes to the fore. The vocals are light and dreamy. This being a twenty-minute piece, things thankfully don't remain stagnant; unfortunately, not everything Toby Driver and company present is wonderful. The screeching, distorted noises are rather unpleasant and distracting. Six minutes in, it becomes a more twisted rendition of Gentle Giant's "An Inmates Lullaby." After that, it is a drowsy affair full of experimental sounds and somnolent expressions. The depth of instrumentation is, as usual for a Toby Driver project, generally brilliant. The composition is, as usual for a Toby Driver project, generally suspect.Vibraphone and loose drumming with hushed vocals and light brass provide a light but gloomy atmosphere before a darker synthesizer lead comes to the fore.
