The perky "Panama," which kicks of Boxcutter's THE DISSOLVE, almost sounds like Lynn is going in a new, funk direction, replete with bass and vocal samples, and the shimmer of "Zabriskie Disco" only reinforces this. The R&B vocals on "All Too Heavy" contribute greatly as well. But "Cold War" and "Moon Pupils" return Lynn to more familiar dubstep territory with digital stompers, while the reverb guitars of "Passerby" convey a rainy melancholy. But "TV Troubles" returns to the funk with a nice layer of haze, before the title track smothers itself entirely in that haze. But the sharp angles of ""Factory Setting" help cut through the haze momentarily, though it returns somewhat in echoing dub form with "Allele." But the dubstep comes back in full-force with the Kab Driver remix of "Little Smoke" before "Ufonik" beams into outer space on a slow drive. Boxcutter has never been more clear with THE DISSOLVE.

This was an impulse buy at the record store counter and I do not in the least regret it. I'd heard the album before in digital format, though I'm glad to have it in vinyl now; the medium complements the album, which draws from disco, turntablism, dub, and *step/garage, blending it into a glowing, hypnotic gallery of smooth, late-night beats. I could leave side B on repeat for hours. A particular standout track is "Cold War", which is an infectious and eminently danceable track with awesome synth sounds. The production all over is polished and smooth, rivaling the masters of the field today.

If you haven't heard Boxcutter yet, try this album. It contains 3 of his simply best tracks one after one (Passerby, TV Troubles and The Dissolve).
