Review

As is the norm with Jeff Mills' album releases, The Eye Witness was developed around a concept. In this instance, the album 'symbolises a mirror reflection of mankind in our most vulnerable moments'. There is ample evidence that it does indeed represent these frailties. "In A Traumatized World" and "Menticide" see Mills combine chilling keys with neo-classical string to create evocative soundscapes. On "Mass Hypnosis" the sound is more organic with a focus on plucked guitars. Mills doesn't entirely abandon his techno roots - the dramatic sweeps of "Hold and Command" is a slower companion to his classic "Gamma Player". But as the 'Human Toll' mix of "In A Traumatized World" demonstrates, his focus here is on soundtracking the frailty of the human psyche.
