"Travelogue" requires multiple listens to even begin to appreciate the depths of its treasures. Rather than falling into the familiar reggae-inspired vibe of much dub (though this album isn''t without that influence), there is a much more ambient and experimental approach here. Yet the atmosphere conjured doesn''t alienate the less adventurous listener - for the palpable mood is the very thing that envelopes the happy hearer of Architektur''s mesmerizing release. Waves of stylishness wash across the listener, with many shifts and surprises along the way. "Travelogue" is also sample-heavy, with odd bits of dialogue and verbage only adding to the curious resonance of this compelling album. Four and a half stars.
