Jordan Vauvert GLaDOS disait : "la comédie, c'est la tragédie + le temps". Si cette logique s'applique bien dans une pensée robotique, il s'avère que dans le domaine mental, la tragédie peut rester de la tragédie malgré le temps qui passe. My Downfall (Original Soundtrack) poursuit en 2007 la tragédie hongroise de Rossz Csillag Alatt Született de 2005. My Downfall reprend l'idée d'incorporer un breakcore inhumain sur de la musique classique en donnant cette fois le sentiment d'être prisonnier pour l'éternité. Favorite track: Integraation.

Since 2005 there has been one Venetian Snares album that everybody talked about. This is the thematic follow-up to the masterpiece that was "Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett", Aaron's story of falling in love amongst the spires of Budapest, scored by Orchestra and the Amen break. If that album was in effect a question, then this album is his answer: the unfolding of this particular Hungarian story. If anything "My Downfall" is even more epic and bombastic than it's predecessor, but not without those little humourous touches so beloved of Snares. The achingly sad orchestral instrumental "Colorless" sets the tone for the majority of this album: loss and regret? It certainly sounds like the emotions of a confused mind. In fact most of the 14 tracks on "My Downfall" are beatless... only four of these tracks have any rhythm section whatsoever. Of those four "My Half" stands out with it's coruscating Amens and tensional chord progressions. The choir and harp of "I'm Sorry I Failed You" starts the album's descent towards the dark piano finale of "Mentioning It" via the beautiful "If I Could Say I Love You" [a favourite on Aaron's myspace page for the last few months]. Even the cover has a mournful stone sculpture of Aaron on the front and the previous album's pigeon being eaten on the inner sleeve. If you thought that "Rossz..." was a one off then think again.
