This is a seriously good album. No bones about it, one of the best VS releases ever. It would always have to be pretty good to be a follow-up to 'Rossz...' and Mr. Funk certainly excelled with this album

The whole album is full of despair and sadness, tracks like 'The Hopeless Pursuit of Remission' set the tone for the entire album. There are no vocals here, only music. Classical pieces intertwined with breakcore, most notably on the incredible track 'Integraation' and 'My Half'.

The further you get through the album the more filled with sorrow it becomes. The final 4 tracks are among the most beautiful pieces of music I've heard, starting off with 'I'm Sorry I Failed You' through the short 'Picturesque Pit' and into 'If I Could Say I Love You' which has to be the most sombre, tear-jerkingly sad track I have ever heard. Seriously, it's hard to fight back the odd tear or two when listening to that

By now Aaron Funk needs no introduction. From Winnipeg, Canada, Funk has been producing experimental idm, glitchcore and orchestral breakcore for renown labels, such as Hymen, Sublight, and of course, Planet Mu. With his critically acclaimed and instantly recognizable style, Funk drops drilling breaks over synthesized symphonic instrumentation which is often sliced up with snare rolls. My Downfall is meant to satisfy the fans' cravings for a follow up to his last album, Rossz Csillag Alatt Született, which pretty much overturned the scene by presiding over the unlikely union of modern classical and breakcore. But in his own downfall, Funk takes a further step into chamber composition, scattering abstract numbered sketches titled Holló Utca (Raven Street in Hungarian) throughout the album, as well as heart breaking, mourning pieces that seep under your skin and touch in all the wrong places.
