After two mainly instrumental albums, Center of the Universe returns to the realm of songs with the current release of "Limited Edition".
Peace of mind dominates the sound waves on "Limited Edition". The often complex structures in electronic music have had to give in to simple parts that make sense only when put together. Every impulse to make something impressive or grand has been discarded. Instead, there is a search for what sounds nice, where the ear might wander and perhaps discover hitherto unnoticed elements. The lyrics are in no way expressing the artist's situation in life etc. etc., rather they are focused on the outside world and the ones listening.
