Taking on four themes of a different nature, this is absolutely the best new material this sound manipulation artist has created. Putting aside much of the abrasive and repetitive nature of earlier works, and focusing intently on the depth of sound devices, loops, and a menagerie of intricate percussion.
 
"Good Friday 99" utilizes synth progressions similar to that of early Tangerine Dream with emphasis on clean rhythmic loops of depth. "P-Head" continues with the melodic percussive aspects funneling spacey hypnotic loops that proves credible for the dancefloor. Then things change dramatically on the other side with "Stereoweb" which deals with an explosive environment of turbulent and attacking percussive aspects that makes Winterkalte almost look like a hack (well, not really). Overwhelming complexity to say the least. And lastly we close out with an ambient trance piece called "Sublimited" that calmly lays you to rest. P.A.L.'s strongest work to date!
