This album is so exciting to listen to. This is the kind of music I long for - music that is daring, alien and spectacularly detailed, but also funky and strangely human. If intricate sound design, strange and imaginative sonic worlds and a potent mixture of childish abandon and sinister mind-bending musical workouts sound like your kind of thing, I highly recommend this release. I don't know how long it must have taken Amon Tobin to create those patches/instruments and edit these tracks - but it sounds like it must have taken a very long time. The music does not sound laboured or overproduced, though, and it'll hit you hard whether you know what's going on on a technical level or not. And even though this material is futuristic and unusual, it is not particularly inaccessible. The sound is widescreen, mesmerising and bass -heavy, many of the tracks are surprisingly humorous and playful, and I see no reason why it couldn't attract those not usually accustomed to the more skitty and experimental ends of electronic music as well as fans of Autechre, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Plaid, Boards of Canada, Richard Devine, etc. An excellent and truly unique electronic album! Well done Amon Tobin for taking a risk.
