The new Final album is definitely the most well produced and cohesive work put together by Justin Broderick to date. Keeping in the tradition of releasing concept style albums, this second full-length Final release revolves arounds the premise of sound elements composed from the sound during the first millionth of a second of a nuclear explosion. With track titles like 'Electron', 'Quark', and 'Subatomic', you begin to understand the common underlying theme. Musically the album consist of seven long ambient tracks which when played in succession attempt to bring the listener closer to the audible sounds experienced in large explosions albeit without any of the ear drum exploding side effects. In essence I think that Justin is trying to unlock certain emotions that lie buried deep inside ourselves based on the premise that the music was derived from a nuclear explosion rather that it actually being the case. Regardless of what actually in the truth, this new album is definitely much more soothing than the previous effort and as a result makes for a much more pleasant listening experience.

Final is: Justin Broderick
