Album Review
Reviewed 2009-04-27 
Dubstep with experimental ambience from the Netherlands. Ventures to slower dub and industrial sounds as well. Lots of tracks seems to fade in the middle and then come back a little different. It's a little much all at once, but all tracks are good, so choose any really. FCC clean.

*1. Growling house-y synth over head-nodding dubstep beat. Restrained, but strong. (4:30)
*2. Like a dubstep version of Massive Attack (plus Elizabeth Fraser), complimented by busy synth ambience. 50 second buildup. (4:05)
3. Glitchy & dub-y, but there's a hip-hop beat. Beat drops out in the middle. (5:01)
4. Industrial beat builds, sometimes becomes drum & bass-like as well. Several shifts between these throughout. Quiet part in the middle. (6:09)
5. Ambience with slightly spastic dubstep beat. (4:37)
6. Poppy dubstep with male vocals. Quiet part in the middle. An Einstürzende Neubauten sound in the instruments/beat. (4:35)
7. Ambience over sparse, deep, dub beat. 25 second intro. (4:25)
*8. Slowly builds with flourishes of ambience and wind instruments, then layered vocal chanting, which later gets some nice effects. Then slowly fades. No beat. (6:15)
9. Dub-y instrumental Portishead. (4:28)
10. Dub with ambience and synth that sounds inspired by a big, hairy man sobbing. (4:50)
11. 1:10 intro with guitar before beat - chill, dub-y Boards of Canada. (6:01)
12. Interesting, heavy beat with long triplets, flashes of experimental ambience like Oval or even Loscil at times. (5:10)
13. Dub with weird, super-fast fluttering/smacking sound and sorta jazzy wind samples. (4:06)
14. Confused dubstep that's both half-time and double-time, later with sounds like Ratatat's last album. (4:14)
15. Ambient intro, then dub with angel choir stuff and busy synths. Beat intensifies. (4:49)
