I hesitate to cast such a pall over the golden child of the dub techno world of 2012, but I did not find this album as compelling as was suggested. To clarify, I am not a frequent dub techno listener, but after reading this was the "headphone album of the year", I picked this up when it dropped to $6, high hopes included. My electronic impulses typically lead me to the likes of Burial, Shlohmo, Nosaj Thing, Clams Casino, and the Tri Angle Records roster. This album was not as melodic or welcoming as the likes of them, but it may be for you. Stream it where you can, as the bookends (especially single "Numb") are friendlier than the middle passage.
