On his 2011 demo, here completed, remastered and re-designed, Oyaarss already expressed all that made of his "Bads" album such a widely praised work: the intense analog noise, the bass-heavy droning, and most of all the implacable, misanthropic atmospheres. "Smaida Greizi Nakamiba": "The Future Smiles Wryly", but also very loud, as Oyaarss's music (here supported by three other Latvian musicians) sings the tune of decay and rust. Exigent, massive and calling the deepest pits of its listener's ears and soul, this album underlines Oyaarss's talent, while displaying another side of his vast repertoire.

Like some have mentioned, this album stood out pretty melodic for an IDM glitch type project. Nothing here feels out of place or too messy, and keeps the mood going at a steady pace. It's difficult to play just one song without wanting to play the entire album from beginning to end. Easily one of the prettiest and most hypnotic albums I've heard. Kris Aroo
