this is the third installment jamie stewart’s subscription series. i expected a lot from it since it’s wrapped in my favorite color. the album sounds like jamie discovered his sampler and mixing board. this is the first of the series to go into the realm of noise albeit with a heavy influence by philip glass. so what we get is big electronics with repetitive cycles, slow gradual builds, cacophonous climaxes, and subtle digressive closes. at times the album sounds like a rhythmic factory. you could almost dance to some of the tracks. it also has a retro, almost sixties production style that i appreciate.  my favorite of the series so far, yellow keeps it’s good name.
