Monoland return with the perfect ending to a trifecta trio of 3 perfect shoegaze masterpiece albums! For anyone who enjoyed their first two albums, they just keep getting better! An emphasis on more pop melody is revealed beneath (and right alongside) the sheets of guitars, giddy loops, propulsive beats, and sonic bliss. To us, they sit quite nicely sandwiched between Electro Group's genius noise pop and My Bloody Valentine's headsick psychedelia. A nice contender just in time to make the "year's best" list for 2005! "With their third album at the latest, Monoland established a reputation to move between the unusual and the unexpected. Adding sampler to a traditional pop-setup, the Berlin based band create songs remarkably unique in sounds and structure. Occasionally, other bands may come into mind but eventually their unique sound bursts the defined pattern and cuts the ground from under one's feet. This music is amazingly versatile and what you experience is curiously influenced by the mood you are in and by the way you are listening. You can listen to each track 20 times and every time you will hear something different: new layers, previously unnoticed sounds, unknown links and unexpected turns. It is left to oneself. Monoland's music does not simply end. Their music has a visual dimension as it does not produce a finalized image. What you see is that what you lay in it. Monoland's music lets you listen to yourself – lets you listen to what happens to you inside. It's all in oneself. In this way, Monoland are subjective and that's why they burst the pattern."
