    Loved this album. Takes a while to really appreciate it but i find myself coming back to listen to it again and again. Has real depth. Its the only album that i have rated every track as very good.

  1. After this striking highlight ["Stick to My Side"] Black Noise glides into a slight lull that persists through the Underworld-like fidget of "Satellite Snyper" and the disappointingly anonymous electro house of "Behind the Stars," which shows that when Weber promotes rhythm ahead of melody the effect can be underwhelming. It’s with the album’s final trio that things return to the high standard of the first half.
  2. Black Noise manages to navigate the tightrope of expectation and creative vision with aplomb. It’s rich and meaty, the kind of album you can really get to know over a long period of time.
  3. Thankfully, the rest of Black Noise manages to maintain an elegant balance of the concrete and the ephemeral.
