Probably one of the most incredible records I have ever heard. A mix of classical, ambient, and IDM. Blown away the first time I heard it. This is the kind of music that expands the mind.

Simply wonderful; a vast, expansive journey through the farthest reaches of humanity's industrial uprising. There are sounds on here that not even "Lifeforms" could fathom. Whereas that was more of an organic affair, Environments II is the result of flora melding with cold steel. Journies through overgrown establishments and ancient outposts long-forgotten, yet still rife with faint, flowing energy and the dreams of slumbering Artificial Intelligences. It even brings about melodies and samples previously encountered through works past; "Ice Formed", in particular has a distinct, crystallized "Calcium"-esque synth providing much of the draw to the former's composition. Think of this as a fusion of their entire back-catalogue, yet re-worked and shaped into a sound never before encountered from this dynamic duo.

This is not to be missed by anyone -- even those outside the current FSOL fanbase. Kick back and let the music take you.

Much better then Environments 1 in my opinion. If I had to guess, the first Environments appeared to be old material while this album is seemingly composed of new material (The first Environments had much more of the electronica funk from their 90's music). I say that because the music is unlike any previous FSOL music. The style is much more ambient and vast then all other albums they've created. There are no true standouts to me, as this album must be listened to as a whole... Keep it coming FSOL!
