The gloom of Diorama still weighs heavily on their dynamically built compositions and Wendt's low pitch crooning shatters all possible feelings of hope. The darkness is what make Diorama stand out and they always balance this out with warm melodies, clever choruses and strong vocal harmonies. "Cubed" is no exception. In fact, it's sometimes hard to tell one song apart from another. The similarities between tracks are quite nagging, but the album never even gets close to becoming boring.
Diorama do on "Cubed" what Diorama have always done and do best. I'm not sure the concept will hold up forever, though.
