4.0 excellentFourSquare20 | March 4th 11

This really clicked for me on my 5th listen through. Really, really good stuff that bounces from musique concrete to downtempo to minimal techno and back again.

2.5 averageJeremy Eugene | February 28th 11

The majority of this is boring and stupid, but there are some parts that make for good listening.

4.5 superbDazSkunk | February 23rd 14

If this album was released 15 years ago, it would probably have been highly influential to anyone in the genres of electronic music that came after it.

2.5 averagefruitytuity123 | July 15th 12

I just don't understand. The title track sounds so stupid and the rest of the album isn't much better. I only really liked the first three songs.

5.0 classicBeram C. Lansay | November 11th 11

This is electronic music yes, but as said previously, it has a very organic feel to it. Jaar
uses lots of samples, even in certain parts it includes odd clacking noises (sounds like
they were made with his mouth), pages being flipped through in a book, and of course, live
instrumentation. But even though there are a lot of natural sounds, Jaar washes over them
with other sounds and dissonance to the point where it feels degraded. This album almost
feels ancient at times, yet it is clearly not. This album really stresses what is in between
the notes; you get lost in the music and it pushes the boundaries of your imagination.
