    While more accessible than most of his previous work, the three pieces here are just as tormented, in particular the septic relentlessness of the 18-minute title track.

    This gripping chapter in his exploration might not quite be his definitive statement, but then definitive has never been of interest to Fernow.

    It’s an accomplished one, and Fernow sometimes impressively commands the stylistic cues of the electronic musics he’s discovering. But the cold, calculating position of producer feels alien to Prurient as a project, where once Fernow torched his soul.

    Through the Window distinguishes itself as a welcomed change of pace for the artist and a standout addition to the extensive Prurient catalog.

    Through the Window might finally allow Fernow's critics to move past the "noise" label, because in his mind, he's been beyond that for years.

    It's an engaging excursion and a good aesthetic fit for the Blackest Ever Black label, but not really a definitive Prurient release, and ultimately Through The Window leaves the impression of the closing of a chapter, a passage to someplace new. [Feb 2013, p.54]

    Prurient's Through The Window, a three-cut techno tour-de-force released this month on the Blackest Ever Black imprint, is at once limiting and liberating.

    Fernow takes a more sprawling, less finely textured approach, so that Through the Window strikes a fine balance between morbid gloom and its faintly cheesy reference points.
