Overall, this is a well crafted and well produced offering that shows off a high skill and experience level. If you’re an ambient IDM fan – or, for that matter, a fan of any kind of ambient music – “Somewhere Out There” should definitely be in your collection.

Andrea Marutti and Fausto Balbo – Detrimental Dialogue
Through the use of effects, the sounds that are used this album – and then mainly those noisy escapades – are put into a really nice perspective.

“Helchemy” is made up of two tracks, both clocking in at just over 25 minutes. I’ll admit to not being a huge fan of super-long songs, but occasionally a good producer can make it work. The drones aren’t particularly notable themselves, but Gydja does a good job of adding enough supplementary elements to make this an interesting listen.
