About this album
Ruined Subjects is a retrospective collection of unreleased tracks, film scores, and alternate versions of songs on previous albums. It's not intended as a regular album release, but rather an EP with unrelated material created between 2005 and 2011.
As a result, the production quality and style is all over the place. Some tracks are good, others are bad, and a few are just plain weird. Several are not even complete songs, but snippets from abandoned projects. Lots of ideas in these tracks were either recycled into later compositions or simply thrown away and forgotten.
The first four songs (Pollux, Vega, Deneb, and Sirius) were made for Universica and either scrapped entirely or adapted into other songs from that album.
The last eight songs (beginning with The Multiverse) comprise the score of the short film Strange Matter.
Everything in between is a jumbled selection from various projects and includes alternate versions of songs from Anomalous Material and The Dreamer's Paradox, sountracks from animations and short films, experiments, and joke/novelty songs.
