Not exactly dance music nor home-listening music. Kind of a strange odd void that sits between dance and home listening that will probably make you 'not sure what to think' or 'what to feel' when listening. Tracks 5,8,9 are quality worthy tracks, esp for adventurous techno-house, but do find the rest of this fairly well received minimal-techno-house album, that can also border as a unclassifiable genre, rather OTT with its plonky shifting patterns, beats, and off-key abstract sounds - some weird and some quiet annoying, making it hard and quiet distracting to stay focused on what the core composition and the direction the music should be going...Can kind of make your head spin at times! Though a polished, sophisticated, and adventurous album. The over-use of experimental sounds happen rather to often, and do feel a little too experimental abstract, and even sometimes annoying esp when its mesh of oddball and unpredictable sounds play over interesting rhythms that spoil some tracks that otherwise would have been really good tracks! 6/10

Brilliant at the first time, this Pronsato's release it's a very promising journey at the minimal beats that we can found in Pronsato's works. My first contact with this artist it's his next work 'Love Do' but I can't listen that fully at first time so I back to that release and I was bite at first beats.

It's a highy polished music. I can imagine Bruno make these amazing tunes in a electronic labor putting each beats one by one waiting for one reaction that provides power, beauty and a little bit of synesthesia. In all cases, he reach it.
Pay attention in all beats that make "At home I'm tourist" and you'll see all the synergy happens. Or wait for the weird vocals start in "Too few hellos..." to realize that a complex beat web is working. Or thrill yourself in female vocals in "I wish" and wait for someting that doesn't happens .. And it's great!

The music structure is not obvious, ingenuous or predictable so it's exactly that make this release be a great, delightful and uncategorized album.

Hello? Repeat!!! Here is Bruno Pronsato again, opening the senses with a amazing Album.

Steven Ford signed this beautiful music, a skeleton absolute of microhouse, based on simple beats, drums power riffs and catchy melodies, vocals, and a piano with an unmistakable sweetness.
An album programmed against common sense, breaking all creativity, it generating emotional rhythms beyond any kind of cliche.
Why Can’t We Be Like Us? It's an old relationship of Bruno Pronsato when was drummer on a Punk Band. Pronsato seems expanded and redefined the concept of House since its roots with a sound abstract, organic and percussive. But the most important is side much more funky and delicate, denoting a high level of production on this music.
A beautiful Album to hear over and over again, its generate the intension of promoting a recopilacion tracks to listen with patience and enjoy it full at home.
This is 9 tracks has a long history, linked to different modes of compositions that are full of rhythms that revolves around a bubbling sounds that seem drawn from his own interior space.

Short like an amazing album, complete thematically and with enough sonic depth and vibe to keep you coming back again, it's a breathtaking record.
