If you're looking for an alternative to functional techno or boorish bass music, then you've come to the right place. Over twelve tracks Dntel delivers an album that places great emphasis on melodies and dream-like textures. Although there is a good deal of variety on Aimlessness - compare and contrast the warm, fuzzy ambience of "Never Say Goodbye" and "Waitingfortherest II" - the underlying sound design and approach favours the seductively fragile. There are some echoes of Dntel's glitch past, most notably on "Bright Night" and "Retracer", but the highlights here are the dreamy, wispy arrangements like "Doc" and "Paper Landscape".
