The first four minutes of this album suggest a terrific recording in the making. "Beside" provides a lovely opening, the gentle pulsing melody slowly building to create something quite special. Sadly it isn't indicative of the rest of the album. On the following tracks Brokenkites opts for higher tempo instrumentals that fall somewhere between synth pop and IDM. There is nothing particularly wrong with this approach but all the while I sat and wondered how much more interesting this music might be if he slowed things down a little and allowed the compositions more room to breathe. You have to wait until Track 12 before he employs this kind of approach, albeit only briefly. Yet the album ends on another high with the shimmering chiptune-esque "Unlimited Life". So there is enough material on here to persuade me to investigate Brokenkites' output further but chances are I'll be looking for something a little more expansive next time. A promising album nonetheless.
