Another great piece of work from dextro. Having previously been a fan of the 'Do you need help' 12" on Border Community Recordings I was hoping for a great album, and here it is. This album delivers a depth of sound that is unique to his work, in that there are layers of melody that pile up, and are then pulled from under you. Undeniably uplifting, and yet often moody and solemn, this album will keep you company throughout.

In recommending this album, a number of reviews have compared Dextro to Aphex Twin and Mogwai. In general, whenever a newspaper columnist name-checks these two acts, it's a sure sign that they think it's quite good but don't know what they're talking about. Sure, it has ambient beats, droning intrumental sounds and indecipherable vocal samples, but there are closer comparisons.

Dextro's album is effectively a homage to Ulrich Schnauss with added spoken word elements. This isn't such a bad thing - I personally count his 2003 album 'A Strangely Isolated Place' among my all-time favourites. Nevertheless, Dextro's release merely creates the impression that you've heard this done before, and the emotive signature themes, while undeniably effective, seem predictable as a result. The other flaw is the length of the tracks, in many cases dragging on to around 8 minutes. This is excusable in anything marketed towards DJs, but for home listening it becomes interminable, and I can't see much of a role for this in a club.

In fairness, there are elements of progress, such as a more liberal use of samples, and a slightly more incisive aspect to some of the tracks that sets them apart from Scnauss' signature aural blur. Some of them could easily be mistaken for tracks by Air, but again, this praise must be tempered with acknowledgement that it's been done before.

If you find yourself impatient for the forthcoming Ulrich Schnauss album, then by all means buy this to fill a hole in your listening schedules. It does combine elements from several artists to move the field along incrementally, but overall the outcome is agreeable rather than revolutionary.

I think this is a fantastic album! When i first heard it I was none the wiser as to what it was all about, however it is certainly one of these albums that delivers more on every listen. This album should not be judged on an immediate listen, as it contains beauty that grows. It's not a dance album, it's an ambient beat driven world that leans toward post rock and other melancholic electronica. It is more somber than Ulrich Shnuass and has more in common with darker acts such as BOC and Christ. In saying that it is also uplifting and contains so many wonderful melodies that it is enough to keep you focused for months. It also gets better as it goes on, and there is no end to the amount of odd and unique sounds crawling out at you. A true beauty indeed.

It's been a while since I've enjoyed an album like this. It's quite emotive, melodic, addictive stuff and is a rewarding listen from start to end.

The music has a mixture of live and analogue electronic instruments, which gives it quite a 'live' earthy sound. It's also quite eerie and unsettling at parts and has the effect of taking my mind somewhere else. The songs have dense structures that at times run for more than nine minutes (Check out the epic `track 'destroy the future of all mankind'). This album also contains quite a few 'side steps' where the music takes a sudden refreshing change.

Consequence music just gets better every time I listen to it and is currently wearing out my CD player.
