Fred Peterkin drops the final installment of the Codes & Metaphors samplers, following December's second volume. Just ahead of the the full album, Part 3 is, again, three originals and a remix. "Amazing" sends acid-flecked chords over a spacious score of Detroit futurism that, while falling a little short of Peterkin's past glories, is one of the series' strongest moments. "Love Is" is instrumentally rich, but the yearning vocals give it a cloying feel. On the B-side, "Even Greater" paces a rigid thud through a blur of dulled chimes and pristine kicks, before Deepblak boss Aybee strips-down and de-funks "Love Is" to stirring effect. Each volume has its moments, but overall the Codes and Metaphors series has fallen short.
