Known as the keyboards and words of the band Depeche Mode, his solo work is cinematic.|
Individual tracks set strong moods and can be good bridges or pallet cleanser in DJ set.
Album as a whole is kinda boring because it's themes are fairly bleak and heavily medicated, like a broken
Portland Bicycle Ensemble. There is a beauty and whimsy to it like watching the graceful wind blow trash around a street.
The first 10 tracks from a dying world and the last 6 are the isolation of.. space? drugs?
Themes: Isolation, modernity, living in a mechanized world, dark, brooding.

All Instrumental (No FCCs)
Recommended Tracks 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, and 15.
1- (2:22) Short nice interlude.. Builds
2- (2:57) Twanging industrial debris, sinister decaying organ sounds
3- (4:31) Staccato white noise with rhythm with hostile metallic vibrations brooding breaks, tonality and swells
**4- (2:05) Some watery keyboard melody, reflective and relaxing, inset a tinnier keyboard melody.
Reminds me of watching water droplets form.
5- (3:05) Thumping industrial grind, pauses and pounds, then flicker-ticker beat makes me feel like I am
observing city traffic cycles.
**6- (3:16) Starts slow contemplative learns to build a rhythm and story with slightly more organic sounds.
7- (3:25) Stringy-bass rhythm, dark slightly tribal with automa-tronic sounds as little beacons. Then the
roaches run out the cave.
**8- (4:01) builds on last track, almost heartbeat sound building with fear or panic. Melodic noodles like
passing through time & space, slo.mo. breaks into sex groove. More time & space. Passage.
9- (4:16) Pensive, idle.
***10. (4:12) Mechanical, spacey, like being on a spaceship take off
***11. (3:18) Windy with electronic floaters. Deep space?
12. (4:17) Pounding engine noise, adventure in space
13. (3:17) Distance, time passing
14. (4:03) Moving into position for space docking, several converging keyboard melodies
*15. (2:32) Space transmissions translation station
16. (3:08) Slow bonky melody developing as the journey unfolds, passage.
