    At times the record is hypnotic and yet mesmerizing with its abstract sound quirks. Heartfelt and authentic, each listen brings something new.

    A series of instrumentals pivot and twist slyly, dropping hints of chord and lithe rhythm, but the bolder moments of the album's opening section aren't repeated. Instead it ends with a track called "Antiform," two minutes of hiss and vague metallic clanking. At first this is sort of a disappointment, but on repeat listens it deepens the album's appeal.

    It’s an album full of interstitial forms that flicker in between fixed states, and its magic lies in that liminal no-man’s-land.

    Drawing on such lofty motifs doesn’t make Dalt’s records any less intimate or enjoyable. Instead, they offer more space for exploring the most vulnerable corners of an artist’s emotional state, by using metaphor and allusion as a way to express the inexpressible. [Jun 2018, p.52]

    A potent and provocative album.

    It contains extraordinary moments of dissonance, rhythms coalescing and congealing then melting away, quietly shimmering choral vocoders. It’s (even) less pop-influenced than earlier works of Dalt’s (Commotus, for example). In its latter half, it sometimes errs into a backgroundish quality, disappearing into its own subtlety

    Very interesting album by Lucrecia Dalt. It feels like a Jules Verne journey. The melodies are very intriguing, fresh and mysterious. Not forVery interesting album by Lucrecia Dalt. It feels like a Jules Verne journey. The melodies are very intriguing, fresh and mysterious. Not for everyone for sure. For me, it was a wonderful experience and surprise. Expand
