Taking cues from Endless Summer, tracks like the floral "Static Kings" and the ten-minute "Luminality" build and unfold like fully-structured instrumentals. But this time around, Fennesz chooses to displace the sparkling flow of the album with noisier, denser tracks like "The Liar" and the title track. With Bécs, Fennesz achieves the near-impossible, crafting a musical sequel that retains the energy, vision and flow of its predecessor. (Editions Mego)
