This beautifully colour illustrated and photographed book offers a way to build good habits and remove bad ones, without being too hard on yourself along the way. The focus is on having patience, shaping solutions for yourself rather than following others and not giving up when things aren't working. Rather than being critical of your faults, the emphasis is on mindful, positive change. Well-known in the business and sports worlds as a method for mapping incremental goals, Kaizen is also a wonderful tool for slowly improving aspects of your life, without feeling daunted or overwhelmed by the challenge.

(Review #171, September 16th ) Figure Study is the debut, and so far only, studio album by the New York-based electronic duo of the same name. While Figure Study were always quite far from breaking into the mainstream electronic scene, they certainly do have a cult following in the underground. To be frank, I am shocked that the duo haven't at the very least gained praise on websites that appreciate cult music.
April Chalpara is the member of Figure Study who contributes vocals to each track, excluding "Divide." I personally find that she does an excellent job, with a deadpan style of singing that perfectly suits the type of minimalist coldwave electronic music being performed here. One would not necessarily be in the wrong to bring up classic gothic rock artists such as Peter Murphy of Bauhaus when looking for an individual to compare Chalpara's voice to. However, the latter had a certain hypnotic tone in her voice that separates her from the average electronic vocalist. Tracks like "Maze," "Wait," and "Invisible" particularly feature vocal work from Chalpara that really crawls up and down the listener's spine. However, Chalpara's voice is far from what defines Figure Study as a duo. As I stated before, it is easy to see just why one would find it difficult to not compare Figure Study to classic gothic artists. If someone happened to strip away the electronic instrumentals found here on tracks like "Window," they would find work reminiscent of artists such as the aforementioned Bauhaus as well as The Sisters of Mercy. It is also obvious that dark sounding electronic acts such as Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance were heavy influences on Figure Study. One can even hear a slight touch of Joy Division in "Station." However, tracks like the absolutely stunning "Answers" proves that the duo can hold their own. They do take heavy influences from a number of iconic artists, yet they still manage to create their own unique sound and club-goth vibe. The thing that sets Figure Study apart from the rest of the previously mentioned acts is perhaps their minimalism. While artists such as Dead Can Dance and Bauhaus have obviously tried this before (and done it quite well, I should mention), Figure Study does this in a different way. Artists like the aforementioned Dead Can Dance and Bauhaus built their most minimalistic tracks around an atmosphere that made the listener feel claustrophobic; as if they were trapped in the world's smallest room with listening to the song that is playing being the only thing to do while trapped. Figure Study does things slightly differently and in a way that makes tracks on their self-titled record such as "Rain" sound simultaneously full of life and totally void of it. While what I just said is one of the finer entries I could make in the "World's Biggest Oxymoron" contest, it's true. Nathan Antolik, the other half of the Figure Study duo, is the individual who composed these pieces and worked with drum machines, sequencing, etc. "Interaction" is constantly making interesting string-synth sounds, yet feels hopeless all the same. Meanwhile, the blaring beats that oppose the ever so slightly dissonant staccato of "Paralyzed" are nothing short of fantastic. Meanwhile, production decisions such as leaving April Chalpara's voice low in the mix of "Bad Side" were obviously very well thought out. The compositions and production on Figure Study's self-titled debut are extremely interesting and prove that Nathan Antolik is just as essential to the haunting sound of Figure Study as April Chalpara is. Figure Study is easily one of the most intriguing electronic releases of the 2010s and perhaps the greatest coldwave release of the first half of the decade. While I understand that an album like this was never meant for the "big time" per se, I would have assumed that its popularity on sites like Rate Your Music would have taken off by now. Perhaps Figure Study's sole album is destined to remain in obscurity forever. Nonetheless, the few who have heard it are in for quite a treat.
Final Rating: 4.5/5 (Absolutely Amazing)
