This is an album that has a real mish-mash of styles, but never once do you think it's purely for the sake of being different. In 3 minutes, title track and opener "Fields Of Fortune" goes from being a reverb soaked, futuristic-synth shuffle to a laid-back jam without you ever noticing, while "Recognizing" goes almost into some broken-dubstep territory.
However, don't let the subtle-but-many variances fool you, this is an incredibly cohesive release that gets by without being too same-y. All the tracks are underlined with lush ambient soundscapes, that really come to the front on tracks like "Outside The Door".
After the 6 original tracks have finished, there's an added bonus in the form of a percussion-driven remix of the title track by Fedbymachines and an almost eerie slow house take on "Rest To Go" by label boss Cogidubnus.
