"Planetary" is a sprawling epic of a tune whose title strikes the listener as less of a Sci-Fi reference than a nod to the gloomier movements of Holst's "The Planets" suite. Striking a mournful note right from the edge, an orderly procession of sharp rhythms, all soaked in cavernous dubby reverb. As the piece develops the occasional hint of a buried Jungle undercarriage surfaces, but despite occasional subtle nods to 90's Dillinja and Photek buried deep in the mix, the constantly evolving textures and the vast array of layers that unfold are pure Antagonist, as is the astonishing complexity of the arrangement as it unfolds over nearly seven and a
half minutes.

"Life In All Forms" hits with a stripped back feel, and although the initially solid pulse is quickly augmented by a whole series of rhythmical extrapolations, and although the moods shift from the euphoric to the melancholy, the tune retains a sense of groove and purpose throughout that belies its timbral complexities. Clocking in at over 7 minutes, and cramming in more musical ideas that many producers fit in an EP, this is clearly the work of a producer who knows the history of his chosen discipline too intimately to simply regurgitate its tropes without putting a seriously individual stamp on them.
