I don't agree with Totes that the album's useless, but there's an underlying point in what he's saying. It's just funny how the 10-year cycle is complete and now it's okay to be into IDM again. And if you don't think this is a heavy IDM-leaning record yr kidding yrself.
I've been enjoying it, takes a little while to sink in. But I don't think it's his masterpiece. Same with Splazsh -- The Wire blew their load way too early. But he's closer to isolating what he does best here.
Awkward is a good word to say something about the critical situations which implies a strong feeling for anything.
