Having heard the excellent 'Atlas' single, I had to hear more of Battles. While awaiting their album 'Mirrored', I thought I'd try this. Big mistake. On first hearing I was disappointed and then I was bored. There is nothing here as good as 'Atlas', because there's almost nothing here. It's all rather aimless, with basic samples and 'ideas' repeated without development or interest. There's some fine drumming but otherwise it's sterile and dull.
