3 stars Listen this album is like listen Sigur Ros but more electronic but passionless, the whole album has the same atmosphere, that never caught me, the whole album it's even, not like EITS, where you can find, in a even album, a lot of mixtures, this album hasn't, is just the mixture of sigur ros+electronics, it's like to mix radio head (that ultra boring band) and sigur ros (that very talented band), i mean, all the talent of sigur rose being wasted while radio head is playing it.

So, it becomes really really boring, turn a good sound into a bad idea, i think that heard the sea has more rhythm changes in 1 minute that this album in almos 1 hour; maybe the following comment is stupid, but it album makes me feel like i'm in one of the most boring day between the change of season from winter to spring: calm, whit nothing happening, but not being nice (no matter what, all the springs days are good to walk).

Far to be a masterpiece, but i can't give it two star, it's almost like the definition Good, but non-essential, it would be close to good, and really non-essential (maybe mixing more rhythms, but that's just a maybe, it would be good)
