This beautifully packaged, limited edition 10" gold vinyl release finds Burkeat least for the most partin minimalist mode. Two terrifying sides of dark ambient thrills from a recently-reawakened Illusion of Safety. This is the Illusion Of Safety side of ambient - very cinematic in scope, not comforting quiet, but discomforting beautiful. 'Sedation' is a humming low end piece with tension lurking underneath, it lulls you to sleep aside the faint glare of electronic fuse cracklin. While Quell goes all out in a Grand Guignol stretch of noise leading out of a maddeningly chilling drone. Scarier than most direct-to-DVD horror films; images providing this sort of sound would probably tear society apart. Or not. Either way, a welcome return to the fold. Gold vinyl.
