This is a remarkably average release. I'd purchase it only to pull out the few good tracks on there, namely "Pnuma", "Set Two" and "Box". The rest is rather bland, unimaginative, and forgettable.

A very great album from Surgeon. The sound is a great electronic travel from the sweet poetry of synths (tracks Golden, Dynah's Dream...) to the energy of techno (tracks Circles, Set Two, Box...), including some experimentations with sounds (track Dialogue).
This is a very interesting listening for techno fans.

Here is a review of all tracks :
- Preview : simple, but deep and dark introduction.
- Golden : nice deep flying melody, which follows very well the intro.
- Circles : kickass monotone techno track, very progressive and well build.
- The Heath : simple minimal track. Nothing else to say.
- Pnuma : strange track build with soft drum loops and a sound evoquing the breathing of a creature.
- Set One : fast dry sounds and a synthetic sound.
- Set Two : minimal techno with very good percussions, and a monotonous synth building the whole track.
- Box : clapping minimal techno used in many sets, especially on Umek on Monoïd
- Dialogue : experimentations with strange sounds
- Dinah's Dream : nice melodic end of the album.
