it's difficult to put into words what makes this album so special - as the moods and emotions of the music itself are so understated and perfectly judged... it's a lot more mellow than the music of the detroit techno masters, but easily the equal of any of Carl Craig's stuff in terms of melody.
The music was supposed to have been inspired by Detroit's architecture and it does sound like a film score in places, as it's so intensely evocative. Excellent, mature music that sounds just as good as background music as it does through headphones.
A superb follow up to his previous album, 'Excerpts'.
It does lose a bit compared to it's predecessor due to some tracks feeling a bit aimless and lost, but on the whole it's a great album. Continuing with the street sounds, filmic soundscapes and superb production that made his last album so appealing, you can't go far wrong with this one either.
A perfect Detroit ambient/electronica feast!
