4 stars Amazing he has created such a rich, prolific landscape with inorganic, monotonous sound unification. His brilliant watery sound maze may get to be something like a hallucinogenic agent for our brain, I suppose.

Exactly just the beginning of the first track "Sylvhydres" excretes magnificent weirdness, that squeezes a large expectation into our memory. Can feel confident in his brilliance occasionally via theatrical, kaleidoscopic electronic development. In the following "Wake" (and one of my faves), gorgeous classical strings movements seasoned with downtempo suppressive percussion mysteriously via ears stimulate our inner mind. This phenomenon notifies us he has been enormously influenced by classical scene, but construct his original sound space not only with the scene but with various musical genres. In "On The Ceiling" massively percussive footsteps sound like a sutra cadence background in a religious rite, that drives us into psychological sublimation and some danceable phrases give us heartwarming palpitation. Exactly like the title, "Fragile" is really drenched in wet, tough auditory fragility blended with tragic strings or serious metallographic vibrations. A dark tribalism filled with floating flowery freakout flavour is the remarkable characteristic of "To The Marble Temple" as if in a temple or shrine obviously.

In "Stairs" are a bunch of organic organ-based orgasms along with electronic chorus occultism and simple monotonous rigid, rigorous sound edges. Cannot avoid feeling something of human fragility as the previous one. "Past Lives" sounds like a song of the previous life remembered clearly beneath our inner mind ... ethnic percussion should bring us mystic memory back long past. And wondering what the title "When I Was A Hero" means. Guess he had been heroic upon some starless underground scene where atmospheric ambience was launched here there everywhere. On the other hand, "Dahlia" or "Shaman", full of fantastic peculiar solemnness, might be expressed as his condition or his eternal musical target I imagine ... hypnotic repetitive phrases turn around like the guru's words especially in the latter track. The last "Reminiscence" should be blown away like the dead tree drawn upon the sleeve, namely the stereotype for electronic / drone / ambient. What a promising suggestion by him.

A splendid soundscape coloured apparently with over-genre-ish variations, not only drone nor ambient.
