IAAOTL's 3rd and final album.

"IAAOTL seem to have set out to pick up ten very distinct and complex musical ideas and then went on to see what happens from there. Because all the tracks seem to revolve around a special musical idea, which might be a rhythmical figure connected to a few notes, the interplay of two instruments in coda or nor, a small, quirky riff or a bigger figure taken from a distinct harmonic scale. These ideas get played with a little, inspected from all sides and then tossed aside when every possibility seems to have been quenched from them. So basically, yes, this is still rock music, but it is also very heady, conceptual and complex and definitely not easy listening... They have definitely come very far and further away from regular rock structures. All three employ a number of devices next to their basic rock trio instruments making each track a complex and organized structural experience, probably closer to modern, serious composition than their roots in noise rock. Between the heavy blasts of bass/drum/guitar riffs, which are to be found on the record, there are minimalist pieces of purely atmospheric sounds. Even though the heavy rock is what the listener will be waiting for and - as they come as a true relief from the harder to listen to parts - the parts that he will remember more strongly, the other, heavy listening parts seem to be on the upper hand on the album." – by Georg Gartlgruber at Monochrom-Cracked (Austria)
