Photek shocked almost everyone with his second album, SOLARIS, by moving away from this drum & bass work and into house territory. The paranoia that infused his earlier work still remains, however, as one can hear from the deep bass hits of "Terminus" or the herky-jerky acid of "Junk." But "Glamourama" gets us into the house in a big way, with a sensuous Spanish-language spoken word, and a deepness that swirls around a dark core. "Mine to Give" features the inimitable Robert Owens in a more poppy track ("Can't Come Down" is also poppy, but offers some breaks in the place of a 4/4). But fear not drum & bassheads, "Infinity" gets back to the blistering breaks for a spell before the title track returns to deep, icy house, certainly suited for Tarkovsky's film. "Halogen" and "Lost Blue Heaven" opt for a slower rhythms, resonating and filling the space with sound. A dark and fascinating journey.

Not really what I would thought I would hear from Photek. This release is more or less towards the Housey side, lacking the drum n bass flavor that he has been known for. It's an okay release, but I have heard better.
