There are some truly stunning tracks on this release - my favorites being on side C - "The Great Attractor" & "Through the Sculptor Group" - Not to mention its an incredible sounding pressing...

This is one of the best and complete albums in last couple years of that kind of style. Great combination of classical and dub, just great Yagya.

Boring but nice music that just sounds to polished, maybe over produced, and artsy! Feels as if Yagya once again try's to appeal to a more commercial base by delivering another safe - The Inescapable Decay Of My Heart - trendy dub-pop like album, as to appeal to coperate music executives/investors who only want to invest in safe music that can reach 1m+ sales.

A smoothly polished sound. In fact Yagya has its own world of sound and signature with its own boundaries. The boundaries have been tested and crossed at times but in the end those who want nothing but Rhythm Of Snow rehashes may be slightly disappointed. "The Inescapable Decay Of My Heart" was the one album that pushed the envelope too far for me and I couldn't fully subscribe to it but all other albums by Yagya I think are fantastic. The 3 x vinyl edition has some killer "outtakes" from Sleepygirl - well worth it!

Do you like Yagya? I've been a big fan ever since the release of their 2009 album, Rigning. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Rigning where, uh, Aoalsteinn's presence became more apparent. I think Will I Dream During The Process? was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the synths to Snowflake 6. In this song, Aoalsteinn Guomundsson addresses the problems of abusive political authority. Snowflake 9 is the most moving dubtech song of the 2000s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. The lyrics are as positive and affirmative as, uh, anything I've heard in techno. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your ass. Aoalsteinn Guomundsson's solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like Cold Hands and, uh, The Phantom Of Us. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it.

Cheesy, uninteresting music, with no sufficient content to be enjoyed and actively listened to. As if it has been made to be a background music for some TV channel on geography subjects. Boring, bland, superficial. What happened to this fellow? Did he grow up and became another bored specimen of mankind? He used to make such cool music at the beginning of this millennium. It seems like "Rigning" was his swansong, and the last 3 albums are equal to a disaster sleazy pop.

The artist Yagya delivers another fine production with this long player. Tracks to immerse yourself in when we get to sit down and take a break from our hectic lifestyles and actually listen to from beginning to end. Like slowly rowing a boat up a fjord whilst looking up at the stars on a clear moonlit night. Elements of dub combined with some superb swirling soundscapes make this a real treat for the listener whilst the additional twelve included in the limited coloured vinyl pressing is a more uptempo affair that will sound amazing in the more discerning discotheques.

The first copy i bought had a lot of audible surface scratches & hairlines on both records. Then I bought another copy in another store... same problem. It's a shame that labels like Delsin use standard innersleeves, especially for that kind of dubby music! Disappointing... it's not possible to enjoy the music!

I don't like vanilla in my yoghurt and I don't like piano in my dub techno.
