This Album may be classified, by some, as Experimental or a Half Step above Minimal Electronic given the Spartan nature of the Melody/Harmony of the majority of the Songs. In my opinion, the overall Mood is Dark and Stark yet Tranquil with abundant Percussive Elements as in Tribal Drums. This does not mean that Music is not enjoyable or even Melodic( at times ) but the Ambiance is more suited to Museum-type or Performance Art settings rather than for dining. Track #1. 'It Seemed So Safe And Tranquil' very much exemplifies the aural characteristics of the Album perfectly. On the other hand the Album's more Melodic Side can be heard in Track #10, 'Vertical Black II'. Ultimately, a Unusual and Intriguing Musical Experience.
