"A dark and somber journey through a confusing space, cyborgs, tenderly teeters constantly on this border between musicality and slow-moving noise. Throughout the two long-form tracks comprising this release, there are moments of long sustained notes with the gentle sound of soft notes coming from a music box playing unrecognizable and buried melodies that lull you into a false sense of security. This sense is dashed all too suddenly as a large wash of noise overpowers you only to completely drop away seconds later. This even is then followed by minutes of the soft (or sometimes harsh) hum of electronics and bizarre recordings that are unplaceable."
