The album's first track, 'Shape of your Head,' fuses driving electronic beats like that of early 90's techno with the schmaltzy sound of sampled orchestral harps only to ironically become almost a rock song with a tight synth bass line. 'Trust and Candor' is a floor-tom centric drum-line with chanting lyrics that bursts into a trumpet fanfare like breaking a two-by-four with your fist only to disappear into oblivion as quickly as it came. 'White Template' starts with quiet arpeggios and haunting, reverb-drenched vocals and erupts into a thematic baritone guitar melody and trotting percussion like that of a Tarantino remake of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. The albums ends with the glitching pitch-bending notes of a euphonium in the song 'Present Day Armor' with what sounds like the march in a demented Miyazaki film and dissolves into the charming vocal harmonies and sounds of shattering glass in 'Words...' Overall, the album demonstrates the group's diverse range of influence and collective approach to experimenting and music making. This isn't your typical knob-twisting-on-the-delay-pedal kind of experimental music as The Binary Marketing Show is picking up the pieces of the broken forms found in the realm of noise music and building a monument to the shape of your head.
