The gritty sounds and raw tastes of Better World start the album in good stead, using the catch vocals of Manuel to put the trademark Infusion sound into act early on. The Careless Kind is another highlight production in the album, using good smooth vocals alongside tough edgy electro vibes. The album continues to drive in a tough direction early on with the lively Feeding From The Hand, one of the vocal less club friendly cuts on the LP. The cheeky Girls Can Be Cruel is next, and should be familiar to many as it has been one of their biggest selling singles to date.
Next up is undeniably one of the highlights on the album, that being the massive Love and Imitation. It is the track that concluded their Essential Mix, and a track that has caused a massive stir for the trio whenever they appear live, mainly due to the gritty baselines and beautifully crafted melodic tones. Daylight Hours showcases the smooth and mellow side of Infusion with the use of subtle melodies and ambient sounds for the first half of the track, before some tough beats kick in alongside flowing vocals. Unlike the previous track, Invisible is smooth and mellow for its entirety, and it is brilliantly crafted using smooth emotive vocals as well as the use of some instrumental genius thanks to a multitude of supporting artists on an array of instruments. It really is a stunning side of Infusion that has not been heard enough! Best In Show is next, and it features some industrial effects as well as some retro sounds and vocals with attitude.
Rattlewasp lifts the energy levels up to no end with an intense array of furious beats, solid baselines patterns and some twisted effects. This is what you should expect to hear from the lads in a live arena. The pace softens up with Dream, a track that reminds me somewhat of the modern Depeche Mode sound. The powerful ambient sounds of We Follow, I Fly are next, bringing the album into landing gear as it prepares for its conclusion. Always There gives the LP another upbeat moment with broken beats and intense base guitar thrashes before the conclusion of the album is performed by Continental Drift, an emotive journey of stunning Cello sounds and smooth strings.
Infusion has delivered something to very proud of in this album. It features a diverse range of moments, from the intense dance floor cuts that we have come to know and love to the smooth ambient and often emotional rides of the slower tracks on the album. It has been a long time coming and for me it was well worth the wait.
