The shorter songs serve as the best vehicles for getting the point across for Bibio. Tracks “Wake Up!”, “Light Sleep”, and “K Is for Kelson” all come in under four minutes and are arguably save this album from becoming wall art. Wilkinson, as on Avenue, brings his lyrical styling’s to the forefront…encompassing an aspect of ‘the familiar’.
Wilkisnson’s Bibio project still lacks sustained luster, and though he is undoubtedly a master of sound as well as a risk taker, his miss hit risks may diminish future relevance. 2009’s Ambivalence Avenue was a viewing into what Bibio is capable of, but let’s hope that is not the high watermark for this project.
