  1. ^ Thank you! Who's the singer at 0:45 - 1:30? It's not Beki Mari, the tone sounds completely different. It doesn't sound like Pixx either. But it's definitely a voice I feel like I've heard before. That track sounds like my fav of the project so far, BOP.

    10 tracks again, seems like 6 with vocals.
    1. 0:00 - 0:45 instrumental/robot voices
    2. 0:45 - 1:30: unknown female vocalist
    3. 1:30 - 2:15: Susanne Sundfør - BOP
    4. 2:15 - 3:00: Second Susanne track - another slowie
    5. 3:00 - 3:30: Instrumental
    6. 3:30 - 4:15: Jamie Irrepressible
    7. 4:15 - 5:00: Instrumental
    8. 5:00 - 5:45: 99% sure this is Pixx?
    9. 5:45 - 6:30: Astrid S but her vocal only features in the last 15 sec clip
    10. 6:30 - 7:39: Instrumental
  2. Thanks for compiling all the parts. Judging from the previews, this will really be better than the first one.
  3. Thank God for Breathe coming along at Track 8 to shake things up cause, dare I say it, I was getting a little bored...

  4. Received my CD today. It's nice, and compared to some other recent releases I've had the card stock used for the digipack is very thick and good quality. The odd AI-looking paintings don't seem too bad in print either... the booklet includes lyrics and a painting for each song (like on the website).

    Yeah, let’s be real, this is a very good 4 track EP. I almost bought the CD when I was out today, now I’m really glad I didn’t.

    The full album visualiser is a nice touch, however.

  6. I think y‘all need to give the album a few more listens. Just because some tracks are longer, quieter, more repetitive or fully instrumental, doesn’t mean they‘re bad or boring.
    I put on my headphones and listened to „There, Beyond The Trees“ right now. It’s beautiful and full of subtle melodies. It reminds me of how I felt about Compulsion when I heard it for the first time. There is something gripping and addictive about it.

    I’m all here for instrumentals but some of them are just muzak. The Yellow clips sound better. I think the three albums will produce one great selected playlist.
  8. Oh my, that sounds glorious, especially the first 3 tracks. Can‘t wait for the yellow album.

  9. Agree, just listened to the yellow clips for the first time and they are much better. I believe this project as a whole will deliver at least 10-12 brilliant tracks, so I‘m more than happy.

  10. I just re-discovered You don't have a clue

    On the other hand new album is fine...it does sound like part of something bigger and it will take time to grow, but I love Breath and If you love me.
  11. I stayed away from any of the previews, so I can now say with confidence that 'Impossible' is G L O R I O U S, but it feels like an epic album closer. Not track 3.

  12. I love the album! It is the perfect balance of vocal and instrumental tracks and tempos.

    But I loved Senior as well which was 95% instrumental.

  13. I really miss their Melody AM sound, so am glad there are some elements of that on this album.

  14. How the Flowers Grow, If You Want Me and Breathe are all amazing. A Susanne Sundfør + Røyksopp album would be a dream.
  15. What an album. I am a fan since Melody AM and glad they ditch into that Sound here and there.
    The procution is absolute rich. Impossible, This Time this place, are the standouts for me.
