"... xAj3z is freedom from the mundane. It is the hidden beauty that stares us right in the face and dares us to recognize it. There is nothing generic about its sound, each melody carries its own personality, its own indefinable emotion. To the surface dweller this can be a casual experience, but those who delve a bit deeper will uncover, piece by piece, the hidden revelations that SoiSong has packaged for us." [Sound & Symbol blog]

"The first full-length from SOISONG. xAj3z freely mixes music styles and combines various approaches to music-making: artificial vocalists are accompanied by real drums, jazz-noir arrangements meet the delicate melodics of the South Seas, computers are made to sound warm and organic. The album shows no apparent respect for genre-definition and aims at communicating with the listener at highest levels of emotional intensity, often lyrical, sometimes dark, on occasions amusing and even uplifting. The album is packaged according to the new PIANOSTEALTH technology - this package is made to last." [label info]

This is the first full length release by Soisong. It is packaged in an unusual, oddly-shaped origami-like sleeve. Please note the disc itself is octagonal in shape and will not play in slot loading CD/DVD players.
