What beauty lies encased in here to surprise the sensitive ear!! This speaks of the urban night, of the silent moment of reflection that takes on you in the midst of the dullest moment of the day...These sounds have been soaked in the sodium glare of our cities, the noises of the night, the fears that stalk you in bed, awake, drunk maybe, and lucid, the flyovers, the distant lights that make you want to escape, the dreams...this music ellicits something from you that is hard to grasp and explain inwords as it will be different for each one of us, but which lies there, a byproduct of our lifestyle.
To me, this departs from a point beyond where FSOL could not go any furhther, mananging to infuse the mix of isolationist ambient and dubstep with a sadness and a capacity for evocation that you can rarely find anywhere else.
Definitely one of the must-haves of the decade!!
I am still specially haunted by one of the tracks, "In McDonalds"...short but so loaded with emotions...
