Knowles wass come back in 2012 with this recording (in my opinion) one of his best but the best. Fourth track is a mix of moderate noise, rare ambiental sounds and echoes with very slow spoken words which become really inspired. The same about first, second and third tracks, quite good all of them. In opposite and of course according my personal opinion, the two last tracks are too much harsh, too much harsh noise but well... each artist make whatever he want of course.
