[First things first; at the time of writing, this album is only available from Amazon on mp3, and yet the physical edition comes with a 5.1 surround mix. With this particular album, I would say that the surround mix is *absolutely essential*. While tracks such as "The Perfect Patsy" work well in stereo, "Krzystl" is not going to scare you to death unless that faulty neon light is just behind your left shoulder and the flies are buzzing angrily back & forth over your head. Now read on.]

This album can only be recommended wholeheartedly for the Thirlwell faithful. Previous Manorexia albums have been fairly solid instrumental affairs, with a definite inclination towards soundtrack work. You could more or less like them whether or not you liked Thirlwell already.

Dinoflaggellate Blooms, by contrast, is all about creating acoustic environments: preferably the sort that will unsettle the listener. Feedback, interference, half-heard voice samples, alarms and sinister rustling are all here. This isn't so much music as musique concrète, so unless you know what you're letting yourself in for, try one of the other Manorexia albums first.

On the other hand, if you're a Thirlwell true believer, you won't want to miss this album as it takes to a different extreme the approach to sound that has made him such an exciting force in music. It's not Foetus ... in fact, it isn't even Manorexia ... but it's certainly intriguing.

Perhaps the best instrumental work he has undertaken, eerie creepy, and nightmarish, it goes from the low bass tones to the Hitchcock screaming violins building up through the pitches, but throughout instills a vibrant sense of unease.

Whilst the earlier Manorexia was constructed on abstract bombast, this shifts along to another different psychology. Has elements of Boulez and Shostakovich but streamlined with a Foetus whirlwind.

I don't have a surround sound system but perhaps would consider looking into it to hear the 3D dimensions on offer here. The timbres and compositions are extraordinary.
