AllMusic Review by

Random Industries' (aka Random Inc.) second offering for the German electro-acoustic/IDM label Ritornell may be titled in witty reference to Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works, but the humor stops there on this heady sound art excursion. The album scrolls through a series of abstracted motifs where sonic decay and disruptive fractured digital texture hold paramount importance over any graspable form, leaving only the thin surface of digital detritus to ponder. The thin and clinical sounds work on the threshold of audibility, and while the cloud of mutated samples fold into one evolving drone, Selected Random Works doesn't do much to evolve beyond the post-Oval glitch sound.
