    Wraetlic is a dark record, delicately assembled to provide the listener with an experience in humanistic truth, a subject in which Smoke has succeeded quite well in outlining.

    Twilight techno at its most haunted.

    Whether or not one buys into Menzies' unrelentingly bleak vision, it's hard not to admire how well he captures the mood.

    There's room for Smoke to grow into this new guise, but Wraetlic is too satisfied with its own dissatisfaction to serve as anything more than comfort food for those predisposed to melancholia.

    This is a largely dejected and sombre affair that is perhaps only for those of a darker disposition.

    Wraetlic has the lingering feeling of prematurity, offering snatches of brilliance too easily snuffed out by its own tendency to hide its features in the dark.
