Notes

"Oh My God" evolved out of the Moskau-Berlin-Session with Nina Kraviz.

Track 10 ends at 4:05, and a hidden track begins at 6:11.

Released in 6-panel cardsleeve.

The sleeve lists the lengths of track 7 ("nothing is everything") as 9:13 and track 8 ("round here") as 8:50. These track lengths are inverted on the actual CD, but the track titles are correct.

    There's likely an error with the listed track length of tracks 7 and 8 as printed on the sleeve: track 7 ("nothing is everything") is 8:50 as it appears on the CD and not 9:13 as per the sleeve, while track 8 ("round here") is 9:13, not 8:50. This concords with the digital release.

    To add to the confusion, some track titles on the physical releases are different from the digital version ("Cowbell" instead "The Revenge Of The Giant Cowbell", "Shoeshine" instead of "Secrets Of Shoeshine", "Round Here" instead of "Angels Round Here Don't Sing"); while tracks 7 and 8 of the CD are track 8 and 7 of the digital release!

      Efdemin's second album, CHICAGO, takes a much different tack from his debut. First off, the opening track, "Cowbell," features a lot of... cowbell. It also has more of a improvisatory feel to it, as opposed to his more carefully structured pieces. The kickdrum never even kicks in! "Shoeshine" brings back the beat, but the structure still remains loose, with snippets of city sounds murmuring in the background, beneath the angular synth lines. "Oh My God" is somewhat abstract until the piano chords arrive, whereupon it becomes almost jazzy, until it segues into the Chicago house of "There Will Be Singing," which takes a tribal direction halfway through before surfacing again. "Nothing is Everything" veers into abstraction again, while, on the other side of the spectrum, “Round Here” and “Night Train” are both rhythmic pounders. The reprise of “Oh My God” that closes the album emphasizes the piano chords in an ambient background. Quite the step in a new direction.
