It has been just two days since I discovered this amazing album and must say, It's nothing that I've listened to before. A clever approach to the melodies with amazing ambient textures, packed in a solid IDM rhythm section all around. AAA+++ Must listen!

has anyone carefully compared the repress with the original press?
are there no differences with the matrix (or anything else)?
small color differences on the cover?

Firewood should be warm, but you'll also feel shivers down your spine...

This work is a masterpiece, fresh air breeze in electronic music world. A totally new approach: emotional, organic, poetic, projected towards the future. IDM, jungle, breakbeat, everything is synthesized with a master touch. Special...

Also praise for the stunning artwork, evoked me remembrances of some rock paintings I saw and drew when I was a child, located in Vallée des Merveilles.

masterpiece ! some tracks are really sentimental and you can feel the emotions going through them. It's rare to find artists who can transmit to you a feeling and i found this album absolutely incredible for that. The instruments and the vocals are mastered perfectly and the result is unique and beautiful. what a talented guy ! he has totally mind blown me !

This Album has everything - depth, drive, ambience, elegance and soul. A true masterpiece which easily competes with Burial, Aphex Twin and Skee Mask. Really looking forward to Djrum releases this year. Thank you

Man nearly cried , all i have to say really.

Despite all of the hype surrounding Skee Mask "Compro" this SHOULD BE THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2018.... esp. compared to the latter album.
Portrait with Firewood is a MAGICAL album displaying a sense of maturity....

creature part 1 for me all day doesn't feel like it should be on this album due to the total change in speed and tone but it works and oh my god it's such a beautiful track.
