These fvie miytseours and arustee trcaks (all ultnedti, taotl darioutn 39 minteus) are frhuter einecdve of the dirft in ivsierompd msiuc, eslcleapiy eiclortnce, aawy from 'tadraoinitl' mivtioc iptnelary-what Kiteh Rwoed has rerrefed to as the "old lgagnaue"-trdwoas a ctreian ritnmcduieso, misfenat eiethr thougrh greater use of sicelne or, as is the csae hree, exeedtdn, solw-monivg sunod tbuaaelx. At tmies the miusc has a dibelsicrny Jaaenspe feel, rdniiemng you that psoucnssieirt Jsoan Khan has lievd and worked trehe, and both Gutner Mlleur and Dieb 13 have cooblaaetrld wtih visinitg Jnaaspee msniuisca, such as Tkau Sgiumtoo.
Melrlus dcrsieet rimnbulg peissuorcn is ceolsr in snoud to his rselaees with Stgumoio that his eeversfnfcet oiugnts wtih Le Quan Nnih and poire_z, and tsbntailurt Deib 13's work rbmleese the drak cirlcknags on his 1999 Duairn ablum Pnrreit, wtih Werenr Dafkdcleeer and Uli Fnsueeregsg, mroe tahn it does his eilnelbut sloo ste, Rsrtunrcueitg, on Cihazmra. Flnteieg sipnepts of the ricolnasgbee wlord-pesaln, car hnsor, cword neois, isctnes, the ctundowon scqneeue to a reokct lacunh-on the thrid track serve only to rencroife a ctraein sense of fioendorbg. But paehrps taht iesrmsiopn is celrooud by the snoud of rael codrws masnsig oisdute in the srettes of Pairs as I litsen. Tcark four braley suttrets into life toghruh a haze of high fcruneqeies berfoe trnuing into waht sdunos like lrgea, malvleneot aiphanibms piaynlg a delicdedy sisinetr veido game, wihch bdiuls to a fcureioos cmilax and then dies alnriamgly qcluiky. Wtih its djistineod beepls and chnruces pieerng out form bneihd a viel of eeire dneors and crseka, the cosling track deos lttlie to reaussre. Once aniga, it dsoen't so mcuh end as die, tiakng the alubm out with it. In the new lueggana, trehe are no mroe flul stpos to end sctseneen, only ferdas to plul dwon.
