3 stars "Sound which comes from silence is music". This sentence introduces the instrumental part of the first track "Deafening". A relaxing track based on major chords like this is quite unusual for this trio. A very peacuful song, even when the drums come to evidence or later when the guitar makes it more rock.

Unfortunately a number of remixes arrives immediately after. Starting from the second track they sound like a less hard version of Linkin Park. I don't like loops and remixes when they are too exhagerated. What I liked of their last album (the first I've listened to) is not much present here. After repetitive listens all the tracks are nice but the melodic parts are very similar one to each other. They are more effective when they give up to chill out athmospheres and become a bit darker. On this album it happens here and there, but it's like they are using the same base on all the songs.

However it's an enjoyable album. Not too experimental. Easy enough to be enjoyed while driving or working. Better before sleeping.

It doesn't have the explicit political contents of the following album. It's almost instrumental. A good chill-out electronic disc. I've never been to a rave (and I'm not thinking to go), but I suspect that the chill-out music the ravers listen to the morning after is of this kind.

Good to relax then, but nothing more. rounded up to three stars for who loves this genre.
