This album’s intricate electronic rhythms with a classical music undertone, combined with the soft and often-haunting vocal arrangements, will capture the mind and not let go. It could also induce an odd swaying motion to make listeners look like mental asylum-escapees.
The eleven tracks all feature sparse lyrics, melancholy and sorrowful, but complemented by the ambient and sometimes menacing sounds that accompany them.
Standout tracks include The Wheel, Fool, and Lessons, all three showcase a build-up that is slow, calculated, but so rewarding it stings.
It’s dark and profoundly new age, but so beyond beautiful. (CD)
