Editorial Reviews

2013 release from Electronic musician Brock Van Wey AKA Bvdub. A Careful Ecstasy, the sequel to Serenity, sees Bvdub tread a notably more autobiographical and thus, perhaps unsurprisingly, melancholic path than its predecessor while still holding fast to the promise of hope. Perhaps the clearest melding of his ambient, chillout, and deep house roots to date, A Careful Ecstasy tells a story of love found and lost, the life we live in and out of its throes, and the beauty that is its eternal, yet often tragic pursuit: for without that pursuit, life would have no meaning and without sorrow, there would be no ecstasy. A Careful Ecstasy tells the story of a heart broken, but a heart that still remembers love and a heart that while never forgetting its past, never stops dreaming of tomorrow.

3.0 out of 5 stars bvdub ‎– A Careful Ecstasy March 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD
As A CAREFUL ECSTASY begins, you might think that Bvdub has taken on some post-rock leanings with his guitar haze. But as the pianos and rhythm come into "Another Love," it becomes evident that it's more of the same. Sure, it's a nice ambient house, but it fades into the background too easily. "My Hinami" almost approaches atmospheric Chicago house, But "It Was For You, It Was For Us" changes tack for a romantic, dreamy vibe, even if the vocals get a bit draggy and repetitive. "If I Had Been A Better Man" is sort of messy, and the vocal samples don't quite feel up to snuff. A blandness seems to have creep into "Through The Lower Room, We Rise Higher" and the title track, as if Bvdub is going for cross-over work. Bvdub is prolific indeed, but I wonder if his quality controls are waning.
