Kirk Degiorgio has produced lots of brilliant music, but this is undoubtedly his finest moment. Soul jazz meets electro meets techno, with many sublime pop music moments stirred in. "Epic" slowly builds on a repeating melody, and while it doesn't quite become jazz, it is certainly jazzy in a very contemplative way. "Chiaro" and "The Electric Hymn" showcase his rhythmic dexterity, as his drum programming is complex yet engaging (and sounds gorgeous). The end of the album slows it down, with "A Short Track About Love" and "Hyeres" coming across not as chill-room background noise, but emotionally gripping ambient.

There is a lot going on here, as Degiorgio incorporates a lot of influences and distills them into something wholly unique: this is neither jazz nor techno, nor jazzy techno. It is very apparent, though, that what he crafted was a near-perfect album that could be broken apart into single tracks, but is best tasted in whole.
