Electronic noir as Adi combines a focus for exploring the dark realms of the psyche, coupled to the machine click whirl of Kraftwerk. Here he builds upon their iconic template rather than copy its format note for note, unlike some with lesser imaginations. The focus is on the exploration of deep and inner space, lighting up the recesses to encourage a journey to visualise the idea that other worlds exist beyond this one. Unlike most synth music which has become a byword for propping up the robotic alienated worlds of Swiss style inertia, this raises questions rather than provides glib mindless or soulless answers.
So it follows much of the template of Buried Dreams as it segues with the previous instrumental album into synthesized orchestral patterns. These would complement Kraftwerk in an elite industrial design. It takes elements of "Sign" and then bends and melds them into, for me, more composite shapes.
Comes in a sumptuous CD package with a booklet detailing Adi's thoughts on the space programme and the worlds existing beyond.
5.0 out of 5 stars Pointing forward... 21 Nov 2013

As always the sound design and composition remain excellent. This is a companion piece to the LP Sign, and is sketch-like in its presentation (on the audio front). .Still, attention to detail is magnificent and points forward to the newer Clock DVA material on the near horizon.
Also, the packaging, specifically the booklet with pulp novelesque cover and the essays and writings inside are top notch. If you are lucky enough to catch them live...do so, as many of the recent performances include TAGC sets as well.
