Another great release by one of my favourites!!! This has totally different packaging to the last 7" I reviewed. Lots of computerised fonts that dont look out of place on an electronic cd at all...but kind of don't make it stand out from the rest of the cd's you see.

I recognised the first track, I have it on a compilation or something. Its a great, quiet, building track. The cd then just gets better and better. I think Bauri doesn't really do much to stand out of the crowd, he just writes great tracks. I mean, they are a lot like all the popular stuff Aphex Twin or Autechre have done, it's just that the way he composes the tracks are dead nice. It's warm the same way as the first Tristeza LP is, or anything by the Album Leaf (if it were electronic).

A rocker I work with repeatedly said that it sounded like Fourtet. It doesn't really though.

If you like this kind of thing you cant go wrong with this cd.
