3.5 greatRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | March 10th 15

One of the more interesting producers to come out of the Birmingham techno scene, Surgeon is a self-made man, having his own record company named after one of his EP's, Dynamic Tension. This album of his takes a bit of patience to fully appreciate, as the tracks may first seem boring, but on further inspection are very textured and interesting. He uses mind-numbing repetition (and I mean this in the best way possible), to create a paranoid and unsettling atmosphere. The assembly-line noises that permeate "Depart" are a nice touch, whereas the glitchy nature of "First" is quite unnerving. An eerie ambient track, "Waiting", is an excellent feature, and "Scorn" makes itself known as a hypnotic mess of electronic noises that sounds jumbled, but is actually very structured. And though the first half of the album doesn't quite do as much as the second, the album is still an interesting listen from an interesting individual.
