    Skirls of noise are layered like mille-feuille, bass drops hit with the muscular impact of a piledriver, and a cloud hangs heavy over the entirety of proceedings. [Jan 2022, p.87]

    By the time Making Sense Of It All’s wobbly notes dissolve into reverb it’s clear that Overflow, while not entirely justifying its runtime, is a serious work from an intriguing producer.

    While much of the album is taken up by experimental mood pieces like these, there's also a significant number of sprawling, progressive tracks.

    It aims huge and comes up huge on occasion. Even if the result is a mixed bag, it’s rewarding to hear West expand his range and infuse his unique brand of techno with more droning and expansive qualities.

    Partially not the kind of music you would expect from Rival Consoles: definitely an ambitious work that at a first listen probably will leavePartially not the kind of music you would expect from Rival Consoles: definitely an ambitious work that at a first listen probably will leave you satisfied but with some doubts; this work is full of interesting shades and I have the sensation that the more you listen carefully, the more it’s possible to understand and appreciate it. This is what a great artist often do: if he would give you something totally understandable and satisfying at a first listen, it would mean that he followed a canon. But Rival consoles wants to create something new. You’ll definitely listen again this album, and this means much. Time will tell us if this Overflow is a masterpiece or only a very good work Expand
