I would say that "The Analysis of Noise Trading" is a darker continuation from 2004's "I Went Out Shopping..." with added focus on the atmospheres and shock of shocks, sampled vocals from various sources which may or may not be one of the three members of the band. Hecq supplies an interesting reconstruction of the first track of the album, "St. Vodka". The cooperation between Hecq and Architect (who co-writes one of the songs on Hecq's stunning new album "Bad Karma") is one which will surely and rightly surpass the NEWT project should an actual album emerge.
It is obvious that the work here was not meant to sound radically different from the previous album and if it is, as I suspect, the second serial installment of a double album then it is off the charts. Daniel Myer has somehow, once more, upped his game by virtue of his own creative prowess. The man really ought to get some serious endorsements from the companies who have their samplers used by him. This is beyond collage or merely accenting programmed monotony; Architect demonstrate their own unique synthetic architectural abilities, seamlessly integrating both the complex and the abstract. I am awed by it's powerful majesty.
