5.0 classiccommonist | April 22nd 18

96/100. Wow. After putting off this album for nearly six months, I finally hunkered down and listened to it in its entirety. "8" is without question a masterpiece--- in its three hour runtime, POD takes the listener through an emotional journey, stringing together 23 tracks of introspective techno. I love the ghostly synths, the pulsating baselines, the fuzzy kicks, and the tight hi-hats. Despite the albums length, I was left wanting more, as if I had just experienced something special, important, profound. Listen to this.

Behemoth of a techno album clocking at nearly 3 hours. Yet its huge runtime did not bore me, and I didn't have to push myself to finish the album. That in itself is an achievement. The album is generally consistent and strong, with tracks flowing well into each other, but I found it drastically missing hooks and memorable tracks. It all flows from one mild flavour of minimalist techno to another without ever being very marking. Exceptions are 7, kinda jammy with a tasty lead, 10, a kinda jammy dub techno track that takes it time to kick in, and 16 which is the clearest cut jam here and made me go THAT'S IT, finally a memorable hook. By 15 (1hr40 in!) the album had started to feel a bit draggy, so it comes at just the right time too. For the rest, most tracks are nice but forgettable, often have bleep bloops or questionable sounds that ruin them, and the record especially lost me after 20. 21-22 are hypnotic and pounding but frankly boring, and no longer flow well with each other - the second half of 21 is nice though. 23 is a good ominous album closer, showing again that the album construction is its strength. For the rest, not much I'll remember - I'll save my notes somewhere because there are so many tracks there isn't enough space here. 3.2

What a behemoth. Nearly 3 hours of minimal techno ? Still awesome.
