8/10 Ant Staff review, 04 March 2010
I'm reviewing a promo CD of this release and so I'm unable to comment on the vinyl only bonus track… This is the first proper studio album by this all-star laptop trio of Jim O'Rourke, Christian Fennesz and Peter Rehberg (Pita / KTL) and it immediately feels more coherent than previous works in terms of ideas working in unison. The combined use of analogue/ digital synthesis, guitar, piano, bass and percussion gels together really very well. What I really like about the overall sound is that none of the individual contributions are obvious and occasionally I find myself wondering which artist is doing which particular sound. For sure it is abstract but there is lots to cling onto. The recent photo in The Wire Magazine I really liked as it just illustrated how laptop music really is nothing to see, which does rustle up a few feathers with gig goers but personally I love the idea of not looking at anybody on stage, possibly even having your back turned and just getting into the sound. Throughout the duration of the album some fantastic abstract soundworlds are created which need to be heard for your own translation. It's extremely difficult to even attempt to articulate them. After reading David Toop's Wire review which abandoned attempting to describe it ,I thought he was copping out, but I'm on his side now. It really is beyond words to me… Strange and compelling to say the least… Unique is the word!
