Your Face in some ways marks a return to form for the breakcore veteran, who's always used the catch-all genre to carve out his own weird and rugged path. "Former Eagle" and "Misericordial" seem to harken back to the sounds of Winter In The Belly Of A Snake or Cavalcade Of Glee And Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms with their chilled IDM sentiment and glitchy, technoid approach. Meanwhile, "Red Orange 2" and "Stockpiles of Sentiment" are the schizoid jungle odes that make up much of the Venetian Snares discography. The former is a classic tumult of neo-classical keys and chopped up Amen breaks amidst a cacophony of nodes that seems to run away with itself. "Stockpiles Of Sentiment," on the other hand, is far more staccato, wielding long pauses and reverberated, squelchy bass drops to devastating affect.
"Become Magic Dolphins" plumbs a different line entirely. It's an acid jam more akin to Funk's Last Step stuff—albeit with token Snares airs, like the dolphin giggles—and makes for an interesting change of pace. As if to counterpose the extensive drum work, "Your Face When I Finally" is focused on melody, bared all in the closing "Glass Version" and clouded over with Snares cheek in it's original. Spot the vocal here—this time it's an instant gratifier.
