This will be the perfect dance track for serious technophiles. The last two tracks, 'Story of Aurea' and 'Wash Over Me', do precisely that and draw us back to sand at the edge of the sea to draw new faces, only to wash them away as Shifted's waves wash over me. This techno is truly great.
Elegant bits of string performance mix with studio chop-and-screw, funny mouth noises, cello farts, and dusty samples. It has no coherence as an artistic product, except what it is not?the album is an exercise in negativity, in showing what its creators are trying to avoid.
