I wouldn't really write a review like this, but just a pointer for all those looking to purchase this downloadable album - unfortunately there is some severe audio clipping present.
I downloaded Three Trapped Tigers 'EP1' a while back (which features the first 5 tracks from this album). Comparing the two, this album download has some erroneous digital distortion. The files themselves are usual great amazon mp3 encoding (256 kbps VBR for all you audiophiles) but something seems to have gone wrong with the mp3 transfer here.

None of this is a comment on the band and their songs (I love). I usually have had excellent experience buying music from amazon mp3, but just this one time, I wish I'd bought the CD. Just a word of warning for all you considering a download right now.

I saw these guys at The End of The Road Festival 2010 and was absolutely blown away by their awesomely brilliant set.
Destined for greatness, there is zero chance of these Tigers being trapped for long or of facing extinction.
Alarmingly talented and here they serve up a sumptuous feast of 40 minutes of sheer unadulterated musical heaven.
Simply and absolutely STUNNING.

Got this album a few months ago- absolutely astounding. Intricate and progressive, yet memorable, and with enough depth that you constantly notice new things- album of the year so far for me.

Three Trapped Tigers are some kind of animal, a three piece instrumental band that fuses electronics with guitars and drums may not necessarily be completely new to you, but when the result is this intense and creative you know you've got something special. They've been doing their thing for a couple of years now, but after a few EPs (Which are definitely worth checking out as well) this is a first full length album and it certainly builds on their early releases. For one I don't think there are any weak tracks here at all and in general there is a greater polish across composition and production.

The first two tracks "Cramm" and "Noise Trade" are classic showcases of their usual sound, with changes in pacing and aggression. Following this is "Creepies" providing an eerie link to the magnificient "Ulnastricter" starting off innocently, building up slowly to unleash a barrage towards then end. "Zil" is dreamy, relaxed and piano only which gives way to "Drebin" perhaps the most chaotic and brash offering here. "Magne" is a chilled out affair before the closer "Reset" is another classic. In truth they flow together so well anyway you may find yourself appreciating one big piece.

Creating compelling instrumental music can't be easy, but these guys seem to manage it consistently with their innovative take on it.

Must buy 10/10.

i first heard this band when they released their 2nd EP. they blew me away then and the album is even better than i could have imagined.
it sounds like nothing else that anyone else is making. people say it's like aphex twin live, but the fact that it's played live means the end result sounds nothing like aphex twin.
whether they did it on purpose or not, they've created their own sound, and it's incredible.
