8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 23 October 2013

We don’t often get computer game soundtracks here at Norman, but here’s one which won an Indiecade Best Audio Design award for the ‘Child Of Eden’-esque cosmic shootout ‘DYAD’. The music is composed in such a way that it changes with the gameplay and so there is no definitive version, but this LP captures 26 hugely varied movements which cover speedy cosmic electro to ambient driftiness to bright acid house and there’s even a few touches of happy hardcore and d’n’b influence creeping in on occasion.

Even in the more chilled out moments it’s pretty energetic stuff. In places shifting moods almost schizophrenically in the middle of a passage, presumably to illustrate the way the music shifts with the gameplay, and the melodies often flash by in a bright and chaotic fashion alongside densely layered drones and twinkles and thumping computer beats. It’s a fascinating listen but flits around a lot and probably makes more sense if you’ve played the game. The insert contains an entire page of impenetrable computer programming code, which is one of the nerdiest things I’ve ever seen on a record sleeve. A compelling listen, if a little distractingly ADHD in places.
