More light minimalistic electronik dance music from Signal To Noise. The Canadian accent is there (must be the vocalist's place of origin), and the style of music is relatively the same. What little growth level there is from the last release originates in the moving synth work, and consistent use of light artificial percussion that seems to go throughout the entire tape. The lyrics are very intelligent introspections on corporate reality, stress, the psyche, and the samples streamline with the music rather well.

The music is very good, but unlike the previous release where every track was distinctly different from the previous, most of the tracks on this tape seem to stay within the same style, they don't run together and sound like the same old music, but they don't fall far from the same tree. I suppose this is to be expected as the band finds it's true musical style, and as with any band releasing a longer length work, the music follows a common theme. I like the tape, and recommend it to those who enjoy a light dance, semi-political, electronic band.
