This disc is ridiculously fresh. Abstract textures, burbling, muttering synth work, deep and dubby basslines, all woven together in a series of beautiful compositions. Then, smack dab in the middle of things, BAM, a brilliant, jaw-dropping Fender Rhodes solo, or acoustic guitar fill, or other display of physical musicianship.
Or, alternately, it's all laptop sequencing wizardry; if anything, that would be even MORE amazing, because I've never heard computer sequencing with such an organic, human feel. This is a true benchmark release for electronic music; the arrangements, sonic invention, and production quality are absolutely state of the art.
