Cybershadow certainly knows how to put together an exquisite album concept from the quality of the artwork presentation right up to the music arrangement and orchestration. They also utilize the most creative use of vocal samples I have heard in quite some time. Normally, I am very critical about sample usage, but the context of the chosen samples as well as the sample sources fits perfectly within the solid musical framework. My only complaint is that five tracks on the album all are labeled as the 'Birth Mix'. Not to sound redundant, but I think it is a bit of an overkill even if the name of the album is called "The Birth of Future". If I was the artists, I would have simply left tracks unblemished from the mix insanity. In any event, Cybershadow has definitely assembled a competent collection of tracks for this album. I for one can't get the lyrics for 'Civilian Tank Dept.' out of my head.
