Despite a near-total lineup change, TRS-80's latest release, full of ambient, beat-driven tracks, sounds as polished as ever. The basslines veer toward the dark and brooding, but the ‘80s-esque synth layers and reverb-filled percussion keep things from slipping into full-fledged industrial-strength bleakness. Though only Jay Rajeck remains from the original trio, it's obvious that newcomers Mike Barron and Fred de Albuquerque have grasped the baton smoothly.
