Album Review
Shay
Reviewed 2005-03-29 
Livetronica band STS9 breathe life into downtempo/trip hop with a beautiful and risky release. A masterful electronic/acoustic balance, jazz sensitivity and refreshing lack of traditional song structure create a meandering, narrative album that enchants and surprises.

Lovely: 4, 3, 8, 10, 13, 20
Unexpectedly soulful vocals: 2, 18, 17
No FCCs.

1. Noise, piano, quiet intro.
**2. Calm fem vox with SIC tech build!
*3. Plucking guitar, hypnotizing groove. Beautiful!
***4. Wandering, clumsy, lovely
5. Interlude. Synth/flute/spoken word.
6. Piano and vox samples.
7. Sleepy, bass-y organ.
*8. Spacey, tech meets congas. A sleeper.
9. Smooth and jazzy.
*10. Beeps, vox samples, chill vibe.
11. Calm guitar and drums.
12. 45-second interlude.
*13. Piano tinkering, guitar and faux xylophone. Playful and sweet!
14. Ethereal, quiet.
15. Upfront beat, lounge feel.
16. Noise, static and lustral sounds.
17. Soothing and sexy.
18. Jack-in-the-box intro, smooth vocals, bongo drums.
19. Soundwash, no beat.
***20. Pretty, spacey -- my fav.
