    If at times the album works as dancefloor aerobic-pop, its true utility is in providing the soundtrack for two people to get lost in the vortex dance of each other's eternal-seeming embrace.

    It's a challenging album-one that won't pay dividends for listeners unwilling to tumble down the rabbit hole alongside the band. But for those willing to buy into Zambri's twisted wonderland, it's a thrilling ride.

    On House of Baasa, Zambri excels at combining the eerie with the fun, and the result is one of the more remarkable debuts of 2012. It's akin to throwing a dance party at an abandoned haunted house.

    The story [House of Baasa] is a mix of glee and despair, and it fits with this album, a venture into the bliss and torment of matters of the head and the heart.

    There are some moments that hint at that brilliance.

    Gorgeous tracks are as eerie as they are sonically cosseting, all weirdly effected electronics and gossamer vocals.
