Very strong album, with strong feelings. It is different than his previous albums, combining dub techno with singing, but for sure not cheesy. I believe though, that the artist should not include another CD with instrumental versions, because these tracks were made as songs, their structure is made with lyrics for singing and without it the music sounds devoid and fugacious. The difference can be noticed on "Reverbs And Delays" track. It would be better and it is a great idea, Yagya and other artists, to make remixes of these wonderful tracks.
I read these reviews and got this CD anyways! There are some really nice tracks here, vocals on CD1 do sound cheesy, but overall still a great production. You cannot fault an artist for wanting to explore more sonic territory when producing new music, its only a natural evolution.
A new pop-dub direction for Yagya - but not a very good direction!!! Musically over produced as if trying to appeal to a wider commercial audience. The dub vibes, actually more like dubby pop, are clean and uplifting. a bit OTT clean and uplifting for my personal liking! Both vocal and instrumentals sound as if they belong in a HMV store playing in the fashion trendy 'chill-out/dance compilation' music section. Vocals on CD1 add a very upbeat pop like feel to the music with lyrics that are typically cheesy overused and very commercial sounding - they don't even add to the music. Instrumental's on CD2, though better then CD1, still unfortunately sound to pop like, missing and removing the absorbing & deep sounds of Yagya's much much better deeper dubby-ambient instrumentals as from previous albums. The depth and immersive atmospheres are certainly missing here on both discs, and sadly takes dub-techno to the mass pop dance culture - 'Sold Out to the Masses' is the impression left listening to this album!
One of the best Yagya albums. This one is very romantic, emotional and melodic,with relaxing and soft musics from the first to the last track.The female and male vocals are beautifull. "Drowned in dreams" and "Waiting for the rain" are two tracks wich honestly i don´t enjoy that much, they lack dynamic and they sound a bit cliché from musics that usually are played at the end of movies during the credits. The cd2 sounds empty without the vocals. some tracks work well in instrumetal version while other tracks work only well with the vocals, so the cd1 works much better than the cd2. Overall its a enjoyable Album,in my opinion this album and "while i dream during the process" are the most accomplished Albums by Yagya.
After three stellar albums, Yagya turns in THE INESCAPABLE DECAY OF MY HEART, and it's... a new direction. But it's not really a good direction. The addition of vocals somehow makes the album sound a bit cheesy, a bit too pop, which stands in contrast to the dub techno backing. And while this isn't the fault of the vocalists themselves, there's only so much you can do. "Gabriel" is pleasant enough, but is a wan experience. With lyrics, as well, there's a tendency to try to make them 'uplifting,' though the results are more often bubblegum than profound. "Tears Will Fall" is a particularly egregious example, while the lyrics of "My Star Is A New Song" sounds as if it would be better suited for a club track. It's better just to hear the vocals as texture. But even on the instrumentals disc, the tracks feel thin without that extra melodic component. (Fun fact: "Reverbs and Delays" and "The Salt on Her Cheeks" appear on both versions of the album, even though they're both instrumental to begin with.) It's certainly a disappointment, given Yagya's earlier work.
After the masterpiece of Rigning (Rain) Guðmundsson sounds washed out, out of new ideas. The cover-up with vocals so cheesy like a Bollywood movie soundtrack doesn't work.
Granted, each to their own, but for me, this is a massive disappointment. I'd go so far to say cringe-worthy in places. The vocals ? This sounds like crooning ultra lounge with extra cheese. Even disc 02, apart from a couple of tracks, doesn't cut it as the musical accompaniment to those vocals is still contained and it sounds kinda dinky. For my money lets just hope this was an experiment. If not, then his first three albums will remain lifelong favourites, but I will part with no more of my cash if it's going to be like this. I wish I had listened first ...
I haven't heard the vocal version yet. Can't comment on that.Just give me a 12" with "The Salt On Her Cheeks" instrumental, with a whole side to itself cut at 45rpm, and I'll be super happy with that.Easily one of my favorite tracks of the year. DAMN.Vinyl. Please. As usual.
I love Mercedes
I don't like vocals. I've turned to electronic music, because I was bored with all the singing in songs. When I heard Yagya was making an album with vocals I remembered how disappointed I was with Magic Sound Fabric's last album (which featured vocals). The music was good, but the singing ruined everything.Imagine my surprise when I fell in love with Yagya's new album. I've always loved this producer because of his organic and natural style. His music flows gently like a river without any bumps down the road. And the vocals are executed perfectly. They are so good that for the first time in my life I prefer the vocal version instead of the instrumentals only. Great album, 5/5, do buy it and enjoy. I don't get people that complain that Yagya's music is mainstream and MTV worthy. Whoever claims dub techno is mainstream needs to check with a doctor, because there's clearly something wrong with their heads.
I got a question sir, do you prefer Rhythm & Sound - The Versions album, or W/ The Artists album?

This contrary reactions remind me a bit to the release of Lusine's - A Certain Distance in 2009.Certainly it's all a matter of taste, but to rate this album with 1/5 is just plain immature and far-fetched.However, for me the new Yagya album is simply brilliant and together with the new Kilowatts album,my two absolute favorite albums in 2012 so far. Like fladza said: "A new genre is born". Call it Yagya! (-;
Well, I wont be looking out for the next album from this guy. This is a huge disappointment, apparantly Yagya wants to be included on the next Ministry Of Sound Ibiza compilation. Couldn't the lyrics at least have been a bit interesting and not so banal? ("tears will fall, if you leave I will cry" etc etc)
Spot on
My deepest condolences!

This album is original and full of emotion.It is also mastered well, and has good fidelity. When you are taking a woman out for a fun night, this LP is perfect. Just have it playing in the background. If you have a nice sound system, then it will sound all the more holographic. It can work during the day as well... it is super chill.
How to clean and remove sand from vagina? Carefully shower with warm water. Record is fine. Yes, the record has commercial sounding vibe with the added pop vocals but that makes it interesting record to dive in. Dub techno scene is full of rehashed Basic Channel copies, so you can always look for those if you really need new masturbation material. I'm glad that Yagya tried something totally different with this record because sometimes artists needs to leap from the comfort zone to learn new tricks by experimenting. You can't always stick to same M.O. and glad that this time Yagya was successful on trying new things.
Trying something new is to be applauded. Unfortunately this vocal style is hardly anything new, and quite tired actually.
Well, thank God, there's instrumental version of the worst album by Yagya. These boring vocals sound like taken from Tiesto or other shitty trancy-pop music. Intrumental version 3,5/5.
an unfortunate bow to mainstream ...vocal CD suits Sky Radio and MTV.....Rate 2/5For your own sake: only listen the instrumental cd ! I rate this 4/5My Yagya favourite is still: Will I Dream During The Process?
I got my copy and let me tell you, I love the CD with vocals much more when the instrumentals only one. It feels empty without the wonderful voice of the female singer and it blends perfectly with Yagya's Dub Techno.All I can say, the new genre was born with this album: Dub Techno Pop and this is certainly, will be more accessible to the wider audience. On the repeat listening I will come back to the 1st Cd only.
Vladza, I'm surprised you liked it considering there are vocals! I think you are totally correct, I think Yagya is on to something here. I think some of the harsh reviews about lousy lyrics really is about there being lyrics at all. I know some many guys, and they are almost all guys, who want their electronica lyric-free. There's plenty for them so they should have no worries. After being of that mindset for a lot of years I yearned for the humanity of the human voice sometimes. This is good stuff! And for those who like this, you're going to love Krister Linder's next album "Million Mirrors", no release date yet. I was listening to it on the roof of a New York building and it was the trippiest experience ever, the spaced out beats, Krister's glorious voice, storm clouds to the north and blue skies south.
have you heard of Luomo?
Explain to me how in such a small island country has so many talented musical projects? Sigur Rós, múm, Ólafur Arnalds, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Bjork, Gus Gus — it is only the first names that come to mind. For this cohort, I would put Yagya. This Icelander since 2002 captivates our music lover hearts his incredibly beautiful dubteсhno. The apogee of his music, many people believe the third album under the name «Rigning», which is kind of an ode to rain. I think it would be at least strange to hear such a giant as Yagya another like a record, as well he said in the interview. Despite the recognizable style, Gudmundsson still has not been repeated and each time he pleasantly surprised us.Even before the official release of «Inescapable Decay Of My Heart» the album provoked mixed reaction in an audience. The main reason for this is vocals and song-oriented conception of the record, as we heard on those short little previews. I don’t have any musical background and I can't estimate it in a professional manner about the production level, here I can only operate with like/dislike- notions, and I damn like this new album. Now let me tell you a terrible thing. Yagya decided to shift the focus of his music to pop music. What! How? Did he really write this word? Guys, let's grow up and put aside this adolescent maximalism. Yes, this album has the vocals, yes, they sound as they supposed to sound in pop music, but they fit so perfectly into the Yagya's dubtechno. By the way his beat became more dense and elastic. «My Star Is A New Song» and «Reverbs And Delays» tracks can be definitely played on the dancefloor, but it won't work previously. All the vocals that we hear in his album are from Iceland if we go by performers names. I wonder how Iceland is so full of talented people, and how many of them are still unknown to us. If the names of female-performers said nothing to me, I was surprised to find out who’s the male vocal owner. This is Gudmundsson personally, he also wrote almost all the lyrics. Basically, this album is above all praise. There's not a single doubtful or weak track, each song is a gem. He's done an outstanding job in my opinion. Songs lyrics, very sensitive in their basis, tell us about emotional experiences, loss of loved ones (Tears Will Fall), and about love of course (Gabriel). After the dynamic middle-part, mood shifts to a more calm way (Bright Moonlit Sky, The Salt On Her Cheeks). During these hot days of July, this part of the album associated in my mind with coolness of Iceland. Finally, Waiting For The Rain brings us back to the Rigning period.A few words concerning the instrumental version. It includes all tracks from the album even those that initially had music only (Reverbs And Delays, The Salt On Her Cheeks). I’d say you should not have great hopes for it, if you are so abhorrent to vocals. Steiny was right in saying that vocals absence is evident in some tracks. After all, everything here goes round his beautiful songs. So I don't envy those people who refused to let this wonderful album into their hearts. And finally it was only you who made yourself out of the pleasure to hear this new Yagya creation, but not him.
quite nice track nice vocals from ellen kristjansdottir looking forward to the cd specially the second cd as its instrumental versions of the tracks congrats to Aoalsteinn Guomundsson with his fourth release of yagya series
