1. Arrested Hope (7:28)
2. Failed to Impress (3:08)
3. Ripped to Shreds (10:54)
4. Accepting Defeat (3:11)
5. Rest (7:54)

Starting off with some very Stars of The Lid or "Imperial Horizon"-era KD, Arrested Hope lulls you into this record. It's subtle, and rather beautiful, and quite possibly my favourite track on the record. Failed to Impress is a percussive-led noise track that then leads you into the record's centrepiece, Ripped to Shreds, which is 11 minutes of abrasive, digital noise which benefits from a long time to grow and change. Briding the gap to the last track is Accepting Defeat, an electronic track that sounds like very restrained rage; high tones building as if it were that moment before explosion. The last and title track, Rest, is pure reverb ambience. Listen to it on headphones, as loud as they'll allow. This is a solid first effort here, with fantastic production values, a great sense of flow throughout the record, and rage, don't forget the rage. Recommended.

Not particularly. It's not IDM, anyway.
