Well, this is better. Canvas Solaris are still a wanky prog-obsessed band with no vocalist, but at least this time they took a pill. Their last disc was so jittery and hyperactive it was unlistenable, but this one shows signs of actual songwriting efforts. The compositions are smoother, and they have more hooks and grooves in them. They are still pretty much a mess though, with no build, tension, dynamic or resolve. These are guys who totally reject the narrative function of music, and it makes their work a pure intellectual exercise. This music isn't offensive, but it's not interesting either.


Track Listing:
  1. The Binaural Beat
  2. Reflections Carried To Mirror
  3. Chromatic Dusk
  4. Patterns Spiral Into Swarm
  5. Heat Distortion Manifest
  6. Photovoltaic
  7. Solar Droid
  8. The Unknowable And Defeating Glow
