My favorite song: Sacrifice

A snippet of Ligeti’s Requiem in a song about universe? Homage, or just predictable?
This is the third so-so output in a row after Medulla (2004) and Volta (2007). Maybe Our First Lady of avant-garde electronica has already becoming too safe and too tame for her own sake. Maybe it’s true: she has lost her avant-gardeness. Should be good songs first, wigs and hairpieces concept later. Not the other way around.

My Rating: 6/10
