SIGNS continues Badmarsh & Shri's Indo-techno, though this release sounds fuller than their first album. The drums on the title track, for instance, have a depth that was lacking earlier (the vocals help as well), while "Swarm" has some acid going on. There's also a prominent dub presence, whether in different guest vocalists or in the deeper bass hits. "Day by Day" works better as a pop song than "The Air I Breathe," and the female Indian vocals on "Sajanna" approach blissfulness. Indeed, the delicacy of "Soaring Beyond" and "The Last Mile" shows them stronger at establishing moods. But their beat-craft remains solid too, as on the the breaks and rhythmic chattering of "Bang." "Appa" ends the album on a sweet, almost tender, note. A strong step forward.

Note that there are different versions of the cover design, because mine has a plain dull-red cover with white text. The artwork inside is similar to the design shown.
