"These guys are masters of electronic music, but then you probably didn't need me to tell you that. Some tracks here are outstanding, while others are plainly melodramatic, but overall the music and the booklet are creative. Lyrics are included, which always scores some points with me (too many bands neglect their booklets anymore), although these lyrics don't particularly make much sense some of the time -- but then again, i guess this could be intentional. Who knows with these guys? They obviously are intelligent lads; it's just that something is lost in the translation. Still, the lyrics are worth pondering.If you don't like one song, just skip to the next for a different sound: some are danceable, others are quaint, some are simply intense [like 'Existence'], and a couple are lovey-dovey. I wish that less of these songs aspired to be elegant and that more of them sounded like the track 'Existence', which throws in some heavy guitar. Maybe i got tired of this CD because i played it every day for a couple of weeks after i bought it, sometimes more than once a day."
