Slow-burning reality crash of a fading love, but always a gorgeous experience. Its like a past love you can’t never forget,
the release is a dreamy atmosphere flirt between techno and ambient, a bittersweet feeling of pleasure and pain. Adorable atmospheres and catching vocals. i give five stars for this outstanding release.

If you ever find yourself tingaling and senses heightened, before reminding yourself if this isn't good then what is, remember that you have just listened to the track "Through The Lower Room, We Rise Higher" on this album.

As A CAREFUL ECSTASY begins, you might think that Bvdub has taken on some post-rock leanings with his guitar haze. But as the pianos and rhythm come into "Another Love," it becomes evident that it's more of the same. Sure, it's a nice ambient house, but it fades into the background too easily. "My Hinami" almost approaches atmospheric Chicago house, But "It Was For You, It Was For Us" changes tack for a romantic, dreamy vibe, even if the vocals get a bit draggy and repetitive. "If I Had Been A Better Man" is sort of messy, and the vocal samples don't quite feel up to snuff. A blandness seems to have creep into "Through The Lower Room, We Rise Higher" and the title track, as if Bvdub is going for cross-over work. Bvdub is prolific indeed, but I wonder if his quality controls are waning.
