On Toby Marks' 7th studio album as Banco de Gaia, it seems as if he's finally mastered his electronic production skills, creating a smooth experience with his hallmark electro-ethno-techno. Thus the title track of _Farewell Ferengistan_ has the Arabic singing fully integrated into the melody, rather than having it simply plopped in out of nowhere. The perkiness of "Ynys Elen" and the quick rhythms of "Chingiz" both show Marks' interest in the upbeat side of things, but Marks also shows a better sense of how to develop his tracks: "Kara Kum" starts out slow and meditative, but shifts into a more uptempo indictment of overreaching Chinese authority; similarly, "Flow My Dreams, The Android Wept" starts off as ambient dub, but veers into a Spanish-tinged direction. He also takes a conceptual approach to "The Harmonious G8," a more experimental project. And even though the album ends on the cheesy "We All Know the Truth (You Have God)," it feels as if Marks has finally cashed in on his Banco.
