My son really loves this interesting album having first heard the track 'Frontier Psychiatrist' and the video on You Tube. I really like it too and their sound is totally unique and original yet makes wide use of many tiny samples from hundreds of pieces of music - I think I even recognized the ship's horn from Weather Report's 'Gibraltar' off their Black Market album at one point!
There is one very moody track with floating piano accompaniment where the music is engineered to sound like an old 33 and a third vinyl record with needle hiss, scratches and a slightly uneven wobble. This is so cool and evocative of bygone eras.
I love hearing it indoors and in the car and it comes across really well on his car stereo.

Not a fan of dance/edm/dj stuff but The Avalanches were a genre defining/defying barrel of intrigue.

The whole album from start to finish is still a pleasure to listen to and has more musicality, innovation and invention in it than many of their ilk achieved in entire careers.

An absolute pleasure. There's more to them than the (utterly fantastic) Frontier Psychiatrist.

Beautiful CD and case design and great audio. Sadly some songs are edited to fit copyright holders' regulations. Search for the Zomba Promo if you can for the complete album.

One of the best albums ever made in my opinion, by an underrated australian group. Get it you won't be disappointed!
