Lovely start to this album with Polaris, it feels very confident and self-assured, which I think is a good sign. Nice piece swith midway, with what sounded almost like cyborg vocals. Grainclouds is a peaceful piece, done well. Rise Of The Machine, start with beautiful bass and synthetic squiggles, and the track builds synthetically to a working structure. It has a nice sense to it, as in it works for me essentially, I liked the track it became.
Lowest Shore is quite a chilled out little piece of work, that after a Friday night is comforting to my ears (and conscience!-). At times is sounded like an old horror film soundtrack, but a very strong ambient feel here as well. Mlac Cirtcele has a slightly unsettling atmosphere to it, but certainly not one that is unlistenable, it's far from that! It's very cool ambient electronica.
Ingsoc comes at you with quite a high pitch to start, drums come in to tone it down a bit, followed by synthetic melodies and flourishes. Last, but by no means least, comes Existenzrand II. Quite dark to start and an avalanche of vocals pours out, as if it was the last opportunity to say everything at the last moment. The track underneath, supports it all well and does get a 'word' in here and there!-)
Stack, to start... lilting synths, break out into a steady sure beat with flourishes of synthetic sounds. All-in-all, a good, decent instrumental piece of electronica. Deaddreamer, gets things a bit darker and is still another decent electro track, a bit more industrial. Venusaufgang definitely drops the mood, sounding like an old horror flick track to start, then an easy beat starts up, actually lightening the mood, into another reasonable bit of electronic instrumentalism. It's almost ambient. Then comes Einwurf. Slightly darker, but only just, and consistently as good an electronic track as the previous. Exitenzrand sounds like a sinister fairground and here's your first lyric in German-rap style??? EBM at best this one, sorry! Instrumentally it was good sound anyway. DBRM starts with a beat, the calling of remote sounds, that begin to build. A smattering of what could be coming emerges and at about 50 seconds to a minute it becomes itself. Again, I find myself feeling not dark or industrial, just good, common-or-garden instrumental electronica, it's shadowy at best, and that's only here and there. G2 sounds like the kind of international commons the Americans would appreciate. Musically, pretty much ambient electronica from the start. Again, the glimpse of shade about half-way through but it doesn't last long enough to be called industrial. Now, Nachtfahrt, begins more like an industrial track, tech squiggles and a slow building of structure and tune, then suddenly it just sounds like the last track played only it's twice as long. Again ambient electronic music. Juno, doesn't really present a change in much at all, sounds like a variation of the last two tracks, only with different mild flourishes of synth. Granulus, more interesting to start, better rhythmic structure, now this sounds industrial, at last! Then, Schwarzer Regen, begins curiously, tinkling bells, will it be ambient? It has some moments, but I think the voice spoils it. Lastly, Sonne über Makaai, another good ambient track. Overall, I would drop the dark, the industrial, and the voice and concentrate on being a good instrumental, electronic/electro outfit. There feels a promise within which isn't fully realised, and I end up feeling a bit confused about what I'm supposed to be listening to.
