If your brain is capable, it will take a good year of going back to this album for it to fully sink in. It just has for me, to devastating effect. A truly wondrous creation of intricate beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rewried In My Manor, 28 Jan 2005
This review is from: Rewired in My Manor (Audio CD)
I discovered this album through the Best Electronic Records section on the Elektrolink website. They ranked it as the best electronic album of all time and although I wouldn't go this far, it is excellent. There is a well planned mixture of ambient pieces and industrial beats. The standout track is The Pod, which has a punching beat and a great melody.
This album is NOT the best Electronic album of all time, (Autechre's Chiastic Slide and Aphex Twin's I Care Becuase You Do beat it hands down) but it is a rewarding experince that is well worth a deep listen.

There is no denying that this album is not for everyone. Infact most people will listen to this and hate it. However, I am one of the lucky people who happens to love it. Here is a description for each track:
1. VI Scose Poise - Great opening track which leads into Cfern superbly. Sounds like a ball skittering around throughout, with a nice melody fitted into parts. ****
2. Cfern - Excellent track with more traditional beats than anything else on this album. Ambient melodys and layers throughout. *****
3. Pen Expers - The best track on the album, and one of the most satisfying pieces of music I have ever heard. Extremely harsh beats throughout and a synth that drifts underneath, over and in between for the majority. The synth is utterly gorgeous. *****
4. Sim Gishel - A decent track with bass line that grows on the ear. Not the most melodic track, but a refreshing listen. ***
5. Parhelic Traingle - A deceptively fantastic track that has perfected malfunctioning beats throughout. The melody that creeps in is cold but beautiful. The moment the beats fade out to leave the melody alone is stunning. *****
6. Bine - A great piece of music that has bassy, echoing beats and a nice underlying melody. ****
7. Eidetic Casein - Dangerously close to being a letdown. Listeners who love every other track will probably wonder why this was put on the same album. It's OK but not a patch on the rest. **
8. Uviol - On first listen this track is not overly satisfying. However when you discover the beautiful melody and its wavy ambience, you will love it. *****
9. Lentic Catachresis - It is likely that 1/100 people will like this, but I happen to be one of the lucky ones. A staggering achievement in drum programming, and one of the most abstract pieces of music I have ever heard. A blistering way to end an album. *****
If you like this, you will also like Chiastic Slide and Draft 7.30 by Autechre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning piece of art, 14 Nov 2004
This review is from: Drukqs (Audio CD)
This album contains the best IDM song ever created. It is track 2 on disk 1 and goes by the name of 'Vordhosbn'. This song has made me laugh, cry and almost sent me crazy. You may not understand it at first but when you get to around the 10th play you will more than likely be as dumbfounded as me. 'Vordhosbn' aside, this album also contains 8 other undescribably awesome peices of music, Omgjiga-switch 7, cock ver 10, mt saint michel + st michels mount, 54 cymru beats, meltphace 6, taking control, ziggomatic 17 and afxv237. Each and every one beautiful in its own messed up way. Although the beat orientated tunes are worth the enrty fee alone, the majority of the other work is well worth a listen. Avril 14th is nice, as are bbydonchord and Hy a scullyas lyf adhagrow. There is the odd filler lurking around, as would be expected of a 30 track lp, but you just won't care as you are taken in by vordhosbn and co time and time again
