I’m finding little to no additional info here, so let’s do this.
“Days to Come” starts things off extremely quietly. So much so that I had to adjust the volume to make sure my spankin’ new headphones still work. Things liven up, at least volume-wise. The mood stays really solemn with a strong beat in the back under a lower voice. This is putting me in a trance, and I don’t think it’s meant to be trance music. I do love the sweet vocals though. Oh, wait, the bass just dropped around 2:00. There’s the dance element. Though the rhythm isn’t going to make me get up and move to it, there’s the essential feel of EDM penetrating your soul.
“Fractals” is sure to lean a little more on the side of insanity, right? And if there’s not a video using this to explain math, I will be sorely disappointed. Okay, but what gets interesting here is how to sound seems to oddly phase out as we work into it. It feels like someone is slowly turning the volume down, and I’m reaching out to try to keep hearing it all. It picks back up eventually, though I have to give credit where it’s due – things don’t come back to smack you over the head. It’s more gradual, just like the fade out. If it weren’t for the blinding bass here and there, my head might not pound quite so badly by the end. The divisions into each other, though more subtle than expected, are a nice touch and homage to the title.
Final song time – “She Was” featuring Birds of Paradise. Whoa, some cracking thing just threw me off balance. This is out of the ordinary realm of melody, with different sounds totally distorting your expectations. It settles down about a minute in, and things are calmer until, of course, they’re not. This one is totally going to throw your senses for a loop. When you can settle into a rhythm for a little while, it’s just that – a sore little while, because things will pick back up and never let you truly rest. THIS would be awesome rollercoaster music.

- “The Truth”
Well damn, that was well done. I mean really, the only thing keeping me from loving the whole EP is the random sounds that drive me nuts in just about any setting. But the creativity here is unparalleled. This album, with each track, is a masterpiece in its genre. And by one guy – not too shabby.
