larvasapiens This album is, just like it's predecessor, a journey across multiple music styles. Some parts are very extreme and chaotic, but it also has its slow and meditative bits. Every instrument is playing a whole song on its own, but mixed toghether, they create an incredibly complex experience, without leaving melody and fun aside. Favorite track: Unfed Pendulum.

composerKJC A truly odd trek through a wide range of emotions and musical ideas, but at the same time exquisitely constructed in its oddness. Amongst its weaponry are such elements as fear, surprise, a ruthless efficiency...(jk). Seriously though, a brilliant and crazy work that makes me incredibly sad that I discovered it after the band has already separated. This feels like a band that has just honed in on its artistry and then (poof) they're gone.... Favorite track: Unfed Pendulum.

Jarak It's a bit erratic and all over the place, in terms of both instruments and style - but in this instance that's a good thing. Can't really be described well in words, just give it a listen already.
