    Few bands exceed Alpha in the creation of truly encompassing and sensual chill-out tunes, and while The Impossible Thrill fails to really explore new territory, it's revisiting familiar and hallowed ground.
  3. The Impossible Thrill underscores Alpha's knack for lush, floating textures whose less beat-oriented groove emphasizes the "trip" component of so-called trip-hop.
