Haiku From Zero is a very synth dream-like concept album. If you like a wide range of RPM sub generes then this is the album to listen too. The best track in Haiku From Zero is Black Rainbows, but a good contender is Tied to the Weather. This is not a dance muisc album but more of a bedroom pop, listening, chilling on the sofa kind of album. The influences from the 80s and 90s synth revolution is very evident and the band, Cut Copy, does a good job placing a fresh take on old sounds.

These Systems Are Failing is an ablum that has much more in common with Moby's punk rock record Animal Rights than it does with his more classic releases. The album takes on a much more aggressive electropunk sound that hasn'tbeen explored very much by Moby previously. Electronics and guitars collide over drum machines and Moby's monotonous voice in an album far-removed from the Techno-Blues of Play.
