I'm not sure why White Bird gets such poor ratings and reviews. Sure, it's not exactly cohesive... but variety is the spice of life, and you get plenty of it here. The album gets right to it with the super-fast trance number, Special World, then immediately jumps over to the chill funky hip-hop of One Fine Day. Then we're right back into the fast lane with Your Calling, a track I find nearly impossible to mix even in my most drunken trance sets. And after that? 7 tracks of dub, downtempo & ambient. The flow to this album is its only downfall, I'll admit... but each track on its own is good and that trademark deep Astralasia sound makes several appearances throughout. I'm not sure why I like it so much, but there's always a track for whatever mood I'm in so it stays in the long term rotation. 4/5
