Review from the european review (and other things) site Gothtronic
http://www.gothtronic.com/?page=23&reviews=7027
------------------------

Pleq is at it again with a new release, this time on the ambient label DataObscura. It seems like Bartosz Dziadosz is a very busy man with creating music.

Where the former album ‘The Metamorphosis’ was a very warm glacial IDM-ambient release with lots of subtle rhythms and structures, with his new work ‘Our Words Are Frozen’, he ventures into complete ambient without any noticeable rhythm, while still maintaining the glacial Pleq atmosphere. It kind of feels like he removed the whole IDM approach and only concentrated on the soundscape approach. The album opens with the very beautiful ‘Last Month’s (Short Version)’. Since the track is already over 12 minutes, I’m wondering how long the normal version is then. Lots of hissing loops and glacial atmospheres surround this track. ‘Walk Through Your Mind’ is a relatively dark song. Lots of crackling sounds, drones and humming industrial noises are heard. ‘We Try To Abjure Material Things’ is a more abstract and experimental song with some Dadaistic sound structures, but all this conceived in the Pleq sound palette. The title track ‘Our Words Are Frozen’ is again a deep droney track which has a great immersive flow. ‘Back To The Moon’ takes us back to a ‘We Try To Abjure Material Things’ approach, albeit with a more prominent drone approach.

With ‘Our Words Are Frozen’, Pleq has created a very good companion piece to his former album. The album has the same glacial quality as his former work, only without the IDM and electronica rhythms and focuses more on the isolationist ambient soundscape approach. The album is released on CDr by DataObscura, but is also available as digital download on their website, which also contains samples from the album to listen to: http://www.dataobscura.com/proddetail.php?prod=DO-046. This album is essential for lovers of glacial ambient as released for example by Glacial Movements Records. Highly recommended!
