The title of Ame's debut album could sum up their entire output to date, and in many ways, Dream House is the ultimate statement from the German duo. However, it is not solely focused on the kind of lush, tranced out melodies that they made their name with on "Rej", but it does features collaborations from Gudrun Gut, Roedelius and Planningtorock. It also moves from the hypnotic chants of "The Line" - a track penned with Herbert - into the hollowed-out break beats of "Deadlocked", the Roedelius collaboration, and into more reduced grooves like "Queen of Toys". On "Gerne", Gut delivers a breathy, sensual vocal over a grinding rhythm, which is far removed from those breathy grooves that Ame first rose to prominence with. However, echoes of this hypnotic aesthetic is never too far away, audible on the droning, Dinosaur L-style guitars of "Positivland".
