    Bibio aims to express an exquisitely blurry mind-state; instead, his lack of focus conjures only a musty shadow of the varied, sportive electro-pop album he strains to create.

    My first impressions of this album were that it was a step back from the excellent 'Ambivalence Avenue'. Initially, it seemed like Bibio was experimenting with just a few too many ideas and not really focused on creating songs. I read one review that hit it perfectly by saying that it's difficult to tell where one song ends and the other begins. That's all fine, and I'm all for experimentation, but I also yearn for song structure and melody, which some of his noises tend to eschew. Overall, there definitely are moments that I love on the album and it's grown considerably on me since that first listen. Full Review »
