前作"The Nothings of The North"が世界中の幅広いリスナーから大きな評価を獲得し、坂本龍一の2009年ベストディスクに選ばれるなど、現在のシーンに揺るぎない独特の地位を築き上げた、東京を拠点に活動するAmetsub。2011年、スペインのL.E.V. FestivalではApparat、Johann Johannson、Jon Hopkins、SBTRKTらと共演し、後日レビュー誌でベストアクトライブと称され、大きな痕跡を残しました。そういった国境を越えた活動の元、3年ぶりの今作はライブで披露した楽曲を中心に纏められ、これまでの作品と比べて圧倒的な広がりが存在しています。果てしない旅を連想させる様な浮遊感漂う旋律の連続は、アルバムアートワークからも感じとれるような赤く染まった大地、荘厳な地平線、大自然を描くような強烈なサウンドスケープに仕上がっており、孤独感の中に確かな温かさが感じられます。

様々なスタイルを独創的に通過し、古いテープで淡く変化した憂愁なメロディーの数々、プリペイドピアノで弾かれる新味な試みも編み込まれ、繊細な音色の響きと線密なビートプロセスによって、"新境地"ともいえる、一つ突き抜けた音楽性が紡ぎだされています。

一つの地点に拘らず、次なるフィールドへ確実に進化したAmetsubの無限の世界観が秘められた全12曲。
