Between the pulsing spectres of Divided and skeletal tinkering of Binaural lies Meteor. But if those releases were delicate, even frail in parts, that's not the case here. "Bulkhead" and "Insective" are particularly bold and intense. Their throbbing, repetitive rhythms are assertive, their noise harsh and jarring. It's a far meaner and menacing ENA than we've so far encountered. There's something terrifying beneath the surface of "Bulkhead," moaning and wailing to be let loose.
"Body" is light by comparison. It's softer, fuzzier design plays on the richness and strangeness of its sounds. It invites deeper listening. There's also charm to be found in "Meteor"'s limping meter and scavenged percussion—tropes that attest to a more familiar ENA, even if he's still not his old self.
