    The album has its lows (a few songs drift too close to dorm-room-hookah music), but the highs vastly outnumber them. DJ Koze has created another fascinating album out of a world of sounds.

Even in one track you can come in contact with a wide range of opposing feelings and emotions.

    ____ "Knock Knock" is a fairly serious and multi-layered work, which does not deprive the ability to move in time to its rhythms.
