Four Tet's illustrious consistency on his electronic records envelope a playful and seething quality within all of them. Much like Rounds, Everything Ecstatic fails to topple Pause or his debut Dialogue. While Everything Ecstatic, unlike its previous album may have shorter sequences and track times it still is plagued by the album's lack of flow. While Rounds was stretched to oblivion on some songs, Everything Ecstatic fails to make a connection with the listener on some songs, which is why it fails to make a great impression. There are a few tracks that do hook you in: "Smile Around The Face", "High Five", and "You Were There With Me" do for a good portion of them, much to the same affect of previous songs by Four Tet like "My Angel Moves Back And Forth", "No More Mosquitoes", and "Parks". These tracks attach themselves to your psyche while the others bring a convulsed and random feeling throughout. Four Tet's new style of mashing tiny drum breaks with abrasive background electronic doesn't entirely work on his recent works, hopefully he'll decide to ditch it.
