2.0 out of 5 stars Not good at all., 14 Jun 2014
I listen to a lot of 'abstract' electronic music, so I feel fairly justified in passing opinion here. The majority of this album is simply woeful. I'm not going to spend a lot of time berating it; if you love Africa Hitech then you're entitled to your opinion. All I will say is that I was expecting something sublime, intricate and mesmerizing, since this is a warp release. I was hoping for something in the same league as Autechre, Plaid or Boards of Canada. Instead, all I found was an album full of incredibly annoying tracks that are simply grating on the ears.

While Scintilli saw the duo heading… Read more

I don't know why I was so surprised; I went to see a 2014 CGI heavy reboot of the Godzilla franchise, but for some reason I expected something a lot more than just a simple updated version. I guess that I expected a much more tense and thrilling monster movie, whereas it merely turned out to be another brainless big-budget blockbuster.

For me, the attachment of Director Gareth Edwards was perhaps the most disappointing thing about this film. The young director made a huge impression on me with his debut film 'Monsters'. 'Monsters' was a hidden gem of a movie; a sweet and touching tale of love and connections concerning two characters who are travelling through an alien-ridden… Read more
