This album is a curious beast, and requires a very special setting to fully enjoy. I made a clever decision by keeping this album away from my speakers this summer. It's quite dark. Well, not really dark but... let's say introspective. It is down in tempo, but it's not really that chilled out. Much more an inner exploration than background easy-listening. It requires of you to be able to let go, kinda forget what you know and what you heard. Then it is much more rewarding. This album sounds a lot like return to style of "Memory Shell". Atmosphere-wise. In a way, that dark-and-light-in-the-same-time sound was here and there present through "Leylines" and "Perimeters" although i think those albums have quite a few weak tracks which i found myself skipping. I like my albums to take me on a trip from first to last second. This collaborative effort with Miktek (greek artist i also had pleasure of hearing live) is exactly that, one awesome musical trip. Ultra deep drones and pads are working wonderfully with incredibly detailed rhythms of percussion - and these experimental "idm" broken, and even dnb-like rhythms are for me a true highlight of the album. I found those especially great on "Alakaline" and "Parenthesis" tempo. So, to bring this to an end, this is a really interesting album full of amazing sound tricks and details, and as always with Aes Dana, the mastering is awe-inspiring and it really makes a difference to listen an album of high-quality music in every aspect of it. It is maybe not as instant-loveable as some other Ultimae releases, but give it time and right moment, and as a plant that requires a certain conditions, it will grow and bloom and bring something beautiful in your life.
