The titles of the tracks as well as the title of the album itself are very simple - "Place1", "Place2", "Place3"...
The first track "Place1" fills the listener with positive energy - light pads together with quick syncopated idm-rhythms circulate quicker and quicker at each time. In the second track the rhythm becomes more of hip-hop style, jumping voices and scratches - the melody is still very optimistic.
In the third track we hear the sounds very similar to keyboard melodies of Beefcake. The author perfectly represents the sketches of his adventures through his recollections, he creates dramatic galleries-labyrinths of sound through which we cross time and space borders.
The fourth composition unexpectedly resembles some horror film - a huge octopus rises from the ocean's depth, attacks the ship and sinks it. It's the most surprising and terrifying track in the whole album, the style resembles hardcore drum'n'bass. The picture of the composition is so loose that it can be easily compared with the best works of Amon Tobin on Ninja Tune records.
The unfolded drama ends, now comes the light sliding theme with female voice. Place 6, 7, 8 are the author's experiments with syncopated rhythms, melodies and additional layers.
"Place 9" is a beautiful pearl hidden among the rest of tracks in the album. 10 and 11 are the obvious nostalgia for the times of Beefcake - samples with German language, the same keyboards and familiar rhythmical structure of the tracks. But all is done so well and sincerely that the album can be listened to without pauses all day long. This album is a pleasant surprise as nowadays it's able it's able to complete the vaccum left after the breakup of Beefcake.
