Yet another overrated "dub techno" album, and this one is not even "techno" at all, just some experimental wanna-be-innovative hipster crap. Don't believe the hype.

Brilliant! Subtle dynamic freeform and unconstrained by atypical ambient dub and standard music composition expectations.
I truly enjoy the fusion of all the acoustic percussion primarily the metallic bells and driving kick.
This is a modern era psychedelic jam where three minds meet at the musical bus stop to hitch a ride on the highway of open expressionism.
If anything this music draws from the well of dub tech but isnt enslaved by its limited stagnant timbral borders. One gets tired of vinyl crackling and white noises swooshes typical of this genre. These guys truly expanded past those boundaries. Superb release!!

THIS ALBUM IS NOT DUB-TECHNO or TECHNO IN ANY FORM!...I tried getting into this album as much as I could as I enjoy the individual artist who form this group - but could not The problem I found with this album is its freestyle use of music using electronic & accoustic instruments along with odd abstract sound sonics that don't form or actually go anywhere! Tracks just seem to go from one rhythm(less) free-form sound, blend to the next sound without any real emphases on direction or feeling of development. They just continue to flow loosely building to nothing. Even the odd recognizable rhythms & structure used here and there never really create a middle or finishing climax as the just seem to filter through the freestyle abstract direction then filter out again. The added use of abstract with its obscure odd sounds do start to become a bit long ended & annoying as they just seem to be used randomly without focus, as with the music. The album does feel rather flat sounding, depth and deepness certainly missing with its samey pace that never really develope beyond its loose abstract-music framework throughout most of the album... It just seems like 3 artist got together, jammed without any real direction or real idea of what to write, and ended with this as the result - an experimental album without form !!!!
