Shhh... - Shhh...
Industrial, Experimental Shhh... is Rui Bents.

This album is ancient history. 2005 was a completely different era. I think we were still using flip phones. Certainly Google-ability wasn't on our minds (go ahead, try it and see where the band comes up). Regardless, Shhh? is the metal detector's gold coin. If this release was lost, I'm pleased to have found it.

Standard fare here. Aphex Twin meets Terrorfakt. Nothing new (course not, its 7 years old) but what is here is solid and enjoyable. The opener "Don't Panic" is way cool. "Les Americaines" is nice and dreary. "Mathematics" gets an emphatic "fuk yeah" and "Twist and Wait" is a standout.

I am a fan.

I just wish it had a thicker/fuller palette. There is so much crunchy goodness here, but no creamy filling or thick and chunky topping. Also, it's a bit too cerebral at times. Could use a dose of hate and hell. Some good ole fashioned spleen.

That said, Shhh... has already burned a hole into my head. It is in regular rotation in my library. I look forward to a new release.
