I think Vortrack was a good single though, it might be my second fav off the album actually. It's... different... Reminds me of go plastic era stuff. And it slaps quite nicely. The whole album is good loud but Vortrack in particular pounds.

Agreed - makes me feel like a cicada molting, shedding my exoskeleton, about to charge into the sky. 

 

Thats what you meant, right?

Still can't get over how good Speedcrank is. Seems like a lot of you favor Mekrev Bass over it, but to me it takes the the cake

I've had various sections of it running through my head ever since I bought the album.

Yeh this shit is miles better than DF or Ufa - its got that driving percussion and less of the digital screechy shite with gorgeous little anticipatory moments my brain is loving. The 2 ambient pieces are great and work well to bring down the energy.... the drums are much warmer than last albums as well..(except for "ecstatic shock"< totally underated track!)

I still really rate Damogen Furies.  Followed by Ultravisitor.

I know I am probably wrong, but I am OK with that.

I agree this one is miles better than the last two - it feels so good to crank it loud as well, which didn’t feel so great to do on the previous recent works - but sometimes when in the right mood Damogen did do something for me. It has some aspects of magic on it even if listening was often a struggle. But man, just heard Ufabulum again and it’s a even worse then I remembered (because I tried to make myself like or “get it” at the time.) The opener is pretty great for a few minutes, but then that EDM thing happens. I’m sure an uplifting chordal bright synth riff could work - I’ve heard it work - but for some reason it just sounded so cheap and cheesy and weak on this album. Surrounded by weirdly still-good rhythmic programming in places. I like bright synth fantasy wizard electronic dance music in principle but my ears couldn’t hack that album. Then again, it seems super popular - the opener alone has a mass of adoring comments. So evidently it worked at bringing a lot of fans in and works for many. 

But the new release is so much more solid sounding with top-notch control, madness, tension and release.

Has anybody else drawn comparisons between the melodies in Neverlevers and Bladerunner theme yet?

Agree with Lianne above too... just damn screetchy ... i think the compositions are ok though and "Mettalurgist/Drax 2" are a good pair... remind me of UV style . Unreal square is only good when it breaks down and splinters - almost nearly just about gets the Exploding Pyschology synth then the stupid cheap mainmelody comes back - grrrrr

Hilarious to me the schism between this album and the last two, based on marketing, when they all sound extremely similar. Back ends of all of them could be interchanged.

You need to check your ears Richie. Maybe the sombrero is on too tight?

Wait, maybe everyone's saying it sounds all super complex and wild and dynamic as they're listening to it @ 45 ?!

Could be, my right ear is pretty wrecked. Listened to Ufab on vinyl for first time yesterday, sounded pretty good. I'm just glad I like the last 3 albums, much joy.

It's my current lead fave in that style for sure.

The whole album works for me, there's often a tune that doesn't quite sit right with me even on albums I love, but I the balance on this album is perfect to my ears.

Really happy to get some proper brain mangling tunes too!
