Although the background of the music is mostly electronic, they incorporate elements from oriental/ Indian chants, new wave sounds, new age meditation-like stillness, and futuristic rhythms, as well as genres more commonly associated to electronic music, as psytrance, ambient and downtempo, creating an unusual mixture that became their own signature sound, which makes their work difficult to categorize, but very easy to recognize.
Despite the innovations, the musical boldness, their out-of-the-ordinary approach to composition, and their astounding creativity, A Singularity Encoded, after the first few tracks, unfortunately becomes annoying, closed in its own premise, monotonous, dull and empty in its own sphere of boring sound sequences, and, disappointingly, the first track reveals itself to be the only real surprise in the album, after all. In the end, A Singularity Encoded is no more than a great expectation, which turns to be a disappointment, although the competence of the musicians involved remains out of the question. Who knows? Maybe they got lost somewhere along the way, in the middle of the excesses of their seemingly exaggerated eagerness for musical experimentation. But they may impress us all, in the future. Their non-commercial standards, and great love for music has to be recognized after all, and their creativity, when aligns itself altogether with something really daring and absorbing, can certainly evolve into a great album.
In the end, after hearing this album several times, it disappointingly reveals itself more as a promise to be, than a promise fulfilled. Taking into consideration what appears to be their main motive, the final result, the sound, the songs and the level of musical experimentation, way more than my personal taste, for the sake of a decent and fair evaluation, I unfortunately can hardly give to this album two stars, out of five, at best. A Singularity Encoded is too random and boring, to receive more than this.
