Sts9 misses the mark with Artifact: Perspectives

STS9
ARTiFACT: Perspectives

Usually, Sound Tribe Sector 9 is synonymous with exploration and progressive grooving; this time, however, STS9 is on par with elevator music from a broken speaker.

Even though the band members think the ARTiFACT: Perspectives experience was “truly a blessing,” the album proves to be a boring and somewhat irritating rehash of ARTiFACT, the band’s most recent studio release.

The album has three remixes of “Tokyo,” four remixes of “Better Day,” two versions of “Somesing” and two versions of “Possibilities,” all in a 15 song album. Mr. Lif’s “Possibilities Remix” is a three-minute saving grace during the painfully repetitive and shockingly funkless album.
