Opening the lid of Unquote's "Reverberation Box" we enter a dream-like utopia filled with oceanic rhythms, organ tones, delicate beats and ethereal vocal snatches. These motifs recur throughout the album like gentle, murmuring reverberations. Inside the box are such dubstep delights as somnambulant pleasure cloud "Dopamine" with its hazy synths; "Heavy Rain" with its Burial-like crackling and mournful strings, and the stark, striking "Cold Tenderness" whilst rogue card, "Metro Dreaming" strips things back and slow the tempo down to 130bpm.
Alongside this, we have 170bpm ventures such as "Cut Off The Past", which flits between melancholy bass-grinding fervour, bleepy 8-bit and crushing drum rolls, flourishes, "Blind Jealousy" with warm bass, rolling subs and charming choral element, and "Spectacle" with its encouraging applause, billowing instrumentals and clapping beats. "Memories Fade Away" sees the return of collaborator Grimm, whilst previously released flipside to "Hide Your Tears" "Lubov Moya (feat. Molecular Structures)" adds another dose of dark, brooding menace, before the quirky clip-clop beats and yearning vocals of "Paint My Wings (feat. Grimm)" provide a poignant finale. And so the lid of the "Reverberation Box" is shut and the album brought to a spectacular close.
