Bit Shifter continues to cement a name in the chip demo scene with yet another phenomenal album. While Closed System Blues explores a range of emotion, the album takes on a darker tone than the artist's earlier work. That said, fans of Bit Shifter will recognize the masterful sound design and snappy songwriting in a heartbeat. Dan Butler
