"On his own label, widely considered as a stripped-down, more dancefloor-friendly version of Cadenza, Lee is at home and kickstarts the new year with more futuristic digital rock'n'roll -- without the ego posturing, we're talking 'faceless techno bollocks' -- for those who know. Well, techno's pretty much the new rock isn't it, minus the vocals sometimes -- then again, there are many instrumental bands. You know, it's got heavy electronic riffs in loops, rising and falling, reaching intense climaxes followed by breakdowns. So bang your head to the ruthless buildups and outlandish, cosmic breakdowns of 'The Darkened Component' on the A side, and consider 'face B' as another A side: 'Endonet' immediately grabs you with a darker atmosphere, a droning, menacing synth and nasty metallic bleeps. Starting from and returning to a confined and intimate space, all sounds expand to arena-size proportions in-between."
