After years of searching, it sounds like Ellen Allien's label has finally found an electronic music diva. Silence is based on understated but plaintive piano playing, brassy licks and some ambient interludes - most notably the wintry charms of "Track 7" - but the most striking aspect of this debut album is Dominique Dillon de Byington's vocals. Like a more endearing Bjork on the wide-eyed "Your Flesh Against Mine" or Kate Bush in free flowing mode backed up with infectious ivory tinkling on "You Are My Winter", there is still enough originality here- check the toy town melodies and daft lyrics about robots on "Hey Beau" - to ensure Dillon has a very bright future.
