Just got this album.
Overall, I'll give it an 9 out of 10.
I have the experience of listening to albums and expecting 1-4 headline tracks that have already been released (and had good reception) with a bunch of other useless tracks around it to fill up the rest of the album.
Having just finished listening to this album (literally a second ago), I can't think of a single bad track. It is Andy Moor, so the overall quality of the tracks are naturally going to be good. I haven't heard a single badly-produced track by him. Ever. And it's great to see that quality continue throughout the album. With 18 tracks (and 1 full continuous DJ mix), this has to be the best buy of this year for me.
I still only put 9/10 though simply because all the tracks were great - melodic, harmonic, intriguing, smart, varying in genre and with a good balance of vocal and non-vocal tracks - but overall I wasn't left as blown away as I wanted to be. If the album had more ups and downs - climaxes and drops with more 'oomph' - then I'd probably would have finished the album, sat back and happily sighed from journey I was taken on. Instead, it was more of a progressive album with few highs and a gentle caressing on my ear drums.
I like the points in albums where sometimes you don't know what to feel at the time of listening, not because your mind finds it confusing but because, you're listening and getting engrossed in the sounds. This was just a bit more of a showcase of Andy Moor and the potential tracks to be remixed into some great hard-hitters.
And I could definitely see a remix album popping up in a few months
