The style is very unique. It calls back to the days of old X-Dream and Logic Bomb, but with a more acidic 303 Goa journey and more focus on layered melodies. Some people might dislike the fact that there are no big climaxes and epic melodies... but the melodies are differently there and always present, they're just not in your face screaming for attention. Even though it doesn't follow this standard trance formula, there is a distinct pattern: basically every track is split up into two parts of progressively increasing complexity, with a small pause to catch your breath in the middle. I don't find this to be a negative quality, the artist has found a pattern that helps him communicate his ideas and it's working very well!

Since discogs keeps deleting my better and a lengthier review, I'm just gonna say this album is a fantastic trip back to the old school lane with top tier modern production. Go buy it, you won't be disappointed.
