Standard version of the new Assemblage 23 album. This album is the uncompromising presentation of Tom Shears biggest strength, the composition of dreamingly beautiful ballads, relentlessly catchy tunes and club hits that will draw all clubbers to the dance floor. He is a real master of his trade, and on this newest work, he has achieved the feat of sticking to the sound all Assemblage 23 fans love and hope for, while still creating a powerful and exiting new vibe. Listening to this album and discovering "Compass" in its whole glory is pure fun; it fascinates and electrifies. "Spark" has already proven a strong and promising harbinger - but who would have thought that Tom Shear might surpass this benchmark in such a glorious way. For all those who love straightforward but also sophisticated and substantial electronic music, this album is not to be missed!
