This is the first time I sat down and analyzed Ab Ovo's records (I only own Empreintes and MOuvements, so the earlier material I will have to cover later). The best way to describe their sound on this album is "spacey channeling of insect-driven eerieness." I've heard everything on this album from a Netherworld choir caught underground and trying to fend off electronic programming ("Inner Space"), Enya-inspired UFOs bringing the message of early-morning psychosis ("Stella Maris"), and music-box trance played in the middle of space exploration ("Night Is My Time"). These guys are truly gifted at making original IDM-based ambient tracks set to expand your mind everytime you hear them.
