To be honest, having heard the concept I was expecting something quite difficult but this is a really strange and beautiful record. The influence of Philip Glass's 'Koyaanisqatsi' and Steve Reich's 'Different Trains' mentioned in the press release is very clear throughout in the repetitive polyrhythms and simple melodies. The overall effect is kind of sadly uplifting, with a lot of parallels to travelling in some ways. Like a series of fleeting interactions that are cut short as quickly as they've begun. It's almost like a super-condensed take on Johann Johannsson's 'Miners' Hymns' at times, particularly in the rousing penultimate track 'London Euston'. I like it a lot, it's an ambitious and mysterious treat.
