Thisquietarmy x Away — The Singularity, Phase II . REVIEWS

“The first “Delta” track is nearly 16 minutes long, a behemoth in its own right.  We do, however, agree with the recommendation to play the album as a whole, and to play it loud.  This way the full scope of the wreckage can be observed.  Reversing the trajectory of the prior piece, the tempo slows, not quite to sludge, but close, before making a slight recovery, moving portentously through Quach’s orchestral chords.  The tempo is restored in “Delta 0000 1001,” the level of excitement raised one last time.  Eight minutes now seems like nothing.  The difference is the danceability, implying the end of films in which kaiju put aside their differences (i.e. Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan) to fight a common enemy, then celebrate with stomps, flaps and roars.  The final flurry of drums suggests the victory of new alliances.  It’s unclear where humans stand in all this (if not all buried under rubble), but that’s not important right now.  Kaiju forever!  Bring on Phase III!” – A Closer Listen (Richard Allen)

“While this record is pretty basic in execution, it’s the larger overall vision that makes it transcendent. The layers of sound interlock in fresh and delightful ways. The quiet poetry of these songs makes them infinitely addictive. These instrumental synth and drum wanderings are not necessarily multi layered prog bangers, but rather triumphant and introspective odes that leave listeners looking deeper, curious to see where we go next. Unpacking these layers and really letting yourself revel in the vision is what makes it all so appealing.” – Two Guys Metal Reviews (Matt Bacon)

“An dieser Platte wirkt alles roh und direkt, man scheint den beiden Musikern direkt beim Erfinden ihrer Lieder beizuwohnen. Nur wenige Zentimeter trennen uns von thisquietarmy und Away, Gehörmuscheln und Wände zittern beim Anhören. Dann urplötzlich wieder diese Weite und Stille, „Delta 0000 1000“ liebt die Schwerelosigkeit und lässt Sterne lodern. „The Singularity, Phase II“ ist experimentelle Musik voller Energie, in vier Teilen dargeboten und ungezähmt betörend.” – Artnoir Musik Magazin (Michael Bohli)

“Alkotó párosunk ezt az érzésfolyamot folytatja napokban megjelent The Singularity, Phase II című anyagán, melyre négy grandiózus hangulatú űrutazáson vehetünk részt, melyben újra elénk tárják a kozmosz folyamatosan változó és pulzáló vibrálásait, lüktetéseit, rezonanciáit.” – Femforgacs
