The overall rhythms of the songs are magnificent displays of omniscience, with powerful outlines of strength and sobriety. The general imposition of melodies is greatly intensified by a strong sense of rhythmic proficiency, intrinsic to the conscious rules of the harmonies. Although the album is extremely influenced by reggae, the eccentricity here works profoundly well. This reggae infused electronic music record certainly reveals an exponentially monumental and sensationally peculiar sense of artistry, especially given the fact that the final result is simply beyond astounding.
Shapes and Shadows is a majestic album. With an audacious, expansive and daring musical proposal, the artist scored just right a formidable level of experimental musical versatility, without the fault of committing any exaggerations.
I became surprised even with myself, taking into consideration how much I have liked this album. With the little twists of psychedelic groves, the abundant Jamaican sounds root of its unpredictable notes and the electronic wave of a vivacious dubstep, Shapes and Shadows is a marvelous record, extremely innovative, unique and original. Highly recommendable not only to dubstep enthusiasts, but for fans of electronic music in general, as well as experimental music, this album transcends boundaries, and defines new patterns for the expected scale of creativity usually found in the underground scene. Undoubtedly, Shapes and Shadows is a virtuous and highly colossal piece of musical revelation.
