Just when you think that you have figured out what Soul Spear is doing with their tracks, they throw a wrench at you and switch up the electronic soundscapes. This record really puts on a showcase of musical prowess, but not without showcasing layers of traditional digital music. There are moments that you swear you heard something before, but right when you try to figure it out, things switch up and you get a new sound, and a new layer. The timing is second to none here, and that’s a testament to the power of EDM as a whole, especially when the artist knows what they are doing. That’s the glory of “Built With Girders”, you don’t really ever figure out where it’s going, making it a unique experience each listen.
Stand out tracks on this record include “Built With Girders”, “Alchemy”, “Sound of Summer”, “Fuel For The Mind” and “Tapestry of Light”, but that’s not to say that the album isn’t great as a whole. If you take this record on fully, and listen to it in one sitting, you’re in for a treat. In fact, this is the type of record that is going to absolutely floor you with the sound turned way up. It’s a multi-layered EDM release that showcases the amazing production skills that Soul Spear has. In fact, if you listen closely, you may very well get lost into another world, because there’s so many layers and elements sewn throughout.
Overall “Built With Girders” is a solid electronic release. It never gets boring, the production is good, and the approach is definitely on par with some of the most artistic of releases available today. Soul Reaper is on to something special with this, and you’ll definitely love it. It’s one of the better ambient records I’ve heard thus far this year.
