the best thing about this one is the fact that bong-ra has turned it into a regular 4/4 beat, so making easier to mix in to other songs. the originals are incredible, but all in 7/8, so a bit of a bitch to fit in a set (unless you mix in other snares work, which is usually in 7/8). good job. pleasant surprise

The thing I love about this record is that it's not Bong Ra doing his breakcore thing, but it's Bong Ra doing something different. This release reminds me of Amon Tobin. I think that's pretty cool.

Also it's nice to see Planet Mu releasing something that isn't dnb, breakcore or dubstep, since Planet Mu seems to be more focussed on that type of thing now.

I don't see what the fuss is about this record. So there are some slow jazz drums, so what? That's about the only thing added to the tracks. Every second of the originals are breathtakingly beautiful, and while I do think that the feel of this record is different than that of "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született" I'm not entirely sure that's a good thing. What I will praise, however, is the fact that Bong-Ra produced something else entirely than what I was expecting. Because this is definitely not "Rossz Csillag Alatt Született" mixed with the jungle/hardcore mix that Bong-Ra's probably most known for.

Don't expect a breakcore record. Don't expect a straight forward jazz record either. Expect 4 beautifully reworked masterpieces. Bong-Ra's use of jazz drumming and upright bass gives these tracks a totally different feel. The emotion Bong-Ra was feeling at the time is totally evident. A sense of gloom, yet a glimpse of hope rising amongst the despair.
