A beautiful record that expands on the bombastic yet relaxed feel of Animals and also successfully experiments with various electronics. The interlude-esque tracks on this release are also top-notch. Definitely an improvement from the already awesome debut record. 188.8.131.52.0 is a must-get this year.
I don't think I've heard a safer contender for Album Of The Year in quite some time. Of course, that doesn't mean this is bad - it's a contender for album of the year, after all. It just feels like TTNG have their brand of clean math-rock down to such an art that they can make incredible songs like "Havoc In The Forum" and "I'll Take The Minute Snake" sound so easy. Which, I suppose, is a testament to the achievements of the band in general, and that they can make such good music so effortlessly is inspiring. This is a great album, and anyone with ears for guitar in 2013 should give it a chance.
