it's nowhere near the level of astounding post-humanist, new-genre collective that you've heaped upon it.


enh, i find it to be pretty astonishing

I'd find this astonishing if I had never heard an electronic album from the 90s

The key to enjoying Exo is having a keen sense of nostalgia for late night endeavours on the Nintendo 64.

And in doing that, I'd totally chuck on music that evokes a similar sense of nostalgia

I'm not sure – it's not as if I find it remarkable because I've never heard anything like it. I just feel like it recontextualizes familiar sounds in an interesting way.

Listening to this makes me sick.

But, right? I mean, it's not just me then... This literally pains for some reason. Interesting

It doesn't re contextualize so much as it rips off a sound while failing to offer anything remotely new or fresh

diff'rent strokes, I guess. I think it's successful! (and I agree it's not what i'd describe as "fresh". Nguzunguzu serves that function)

Meh, more of the same as well. Old school Orb and FSOL tracks run through Fruity Loops with chipmunk vox thrown on top for good measure

The fuck? This shit is so good, been blown away since the first time I listened in full.

To not like the aesthetic is one thing, but to call it sickening is pretty absurd.

Fuck. What's after post-human idk.

The post-man *ba-dum-ching*.

while the interludes successfully establish a fully-formed sonic environment that will be happily familiar to anybody who wore out their copy of Frank Klepacki's Red Alert soundtracks

Ok. WANT WANT WANT.
