This release starts as so many other Traum releases have, with soaring trance-like melodies. While the title track does nothing to reinvent the label's sound, its pulsing groove, euphoric builds and dramatic melodic sweeps will prove difficult for even the most jaded Cologne techno fan to resist. "Before the Feast" boasts similarly atmospheric melodies and hooks, but on this occasion, they are set to a metallic house groove. The only deviation from the Traum script is "Goujian", where Dow fuses a wall of new wave guitar noise to a pulsing rhythm. Unsurprisingly though, it ends up in the same climactic space - the only difference is that instead of electronic melodies, the outro resonates to walls of guitar feedback.
