This is probably the most IDM album of Barry 'Boxcutter' Lynn's career, spanning the breadth of the electronica cannon from the AFX sounding 'Something With M In It' to the Squarepusher infused 'New Orleans' and 'Lattice Shimmer'. It is an album of influences, yes, but with a coherent sound entirely Lynn's own. Through this work the listener is taken on a musical trip that a verbal description cannot but fail to capture. Someone once said that writing about music is like talking about architecture, that may be the case but it doesn't stop me offering up my praise for this beautiful collection of tunes. This has to be one of the top albums of 2008 and yet more evidence of the greatness of the Planet Mu label.

Barry Lynn '- Balancing Lakes 11 Jun. 2012
By scoundrel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"Abort, Retry, Fail" gets into the blippery right away on Barry Lynn's collection of random tracks, gathered here as BALANCING LAKES. A cute melody gets introduced in "Something With M in It" and "Early Reflection" (both of which harken to Boards of Canada) while the frenetic breaks of "Loving Dub" and the funk bass of "Metric Cypher" suggests a Squarepusher influence. He can also strike out on his own, as with the ambient "Fieldtrip (Butterfly Pair Mix)" or the Jamaican-tinged "November Dub." It's no wonder that he finally came into his own under his Boxcutter moniker.

Headphone Commute Review 30 Mar. 2008
By Headphone Commute - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Barry Lynn is a sneaky fellah, and I must admit, he almost slipped this release unnoticed by my watchful eye of his usual releases under the Boxcutter moniker. Thankfully he didn't drift too far, and comfortably settled on his home label, Planet Mu. Well, Barry, what have we here? A delicious collection of abstract glitchy IDM, with an occasional dub track and even some breakcore - must you make me mention Squarepusher in this writeup? Ah, but I guess it all makes sense: Balancing Lakes is mostly a collection of previously unreleased material, produced in the four years prior to Boxcutter's LP debut, Oneiric (2006). It's no wonder that I hear influences from all of my favorite Warp artists. And in this reviewer's opinion, some of the drill'n'bass tracks don't even feel that dated, but are instead welcomed by a nostalgic ear. It feels like discovering an accidentally missed artist. In fact, that's true. That artist - Barry Lynn. The only down side to the release, is that thematically it's a bit tougher to consume as an album, rather than a collection of tracks. Doesn't mean that I won't be ripping it apart and flag individual selections as favorites for my rotations. Pick up your copy over at [I'm still fuming over iTunes attempting to slip 128kbps as acceptable medium]. Recommended if you like The Flashbulb, Aaron Spectre, Aphex Twin, and Clark. No dubstep here. Favorite track: London.
