2 stars Another quite uninspired electronic work from much celebrated prog guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez doesn't puts much in addition to what's already been said on his previous solo works.

The first track, 'Salt Lines', and 'Common Condescend' both remind me a bit of No-Man and their later albums, and I would say that actually all the vocals on this album (although heavily processed) remind me of Tim Bowness. Another interesting track is 'Invisible Laziness', which features some nice electronic effects, and 'Machu Picchu' is not a bad instrumental track.

Despite of some minor changes in style throughout the album, the music here looks quite sameish, and virtually has nothing really unique to offer to listener.

4/10. It's not the worst work in the vast Omar Rodriguez-Lopez catalogue, but definitely one of those you can easily live without.
