Imagine a song thats quite hard to get used to. You finally get used to it, then it changes. You have to get used to it again. You do, then it changes. Ad infinitum. This album perfectly encompasses this "experience". Uncomfortable? Yeah. Disorientating? Yeah. But somehow, you'll still be able to pick out some of the most unique segments of music you're likely to hear in a long time. One bit that totally kicked me in the face is in "Recovery Speak", which builds from a reverby, hazy instrumental section, into a sudden burst of spazzy saxaphone, leading into an impossibly complex stop-start-athon (nice) that always seems to remind me of the interlude of "21st Century Schizoid Man" from King Crimson, only to switch to a longer dreamy drone anthem. Beautiful.
So, long songs, insulting time signatures,heaps of delay (always a bonus), odd electronics and encrypted titles and lyrics. Shut up. Buy it.
Also, if you can, find their older (out of print) ep "Lets get going, you're fracturing me with this misery", i still cant decide which i prefer.
