Absolutely amazing music. Frontier stands out as one of my all time favorite songs. Not impressed with the quality of the vinyl pressing, though. I've had three copies. First had large bump on side A (Eternal) that caused loud pops. Another copy had several surface scuffs right out of the shrink-wrap. Both of the other copies possessed small dimples on side B (Swim) and a slight amount of groove infill at the beginning of Frontier. Overall, it reminded me a lot of the recycled vinyl of the '70s.

Masterpiece. Strong contender to release of the year for me

I'm not sure if I'm correct about the set-up of this 'record', but it is not right to test your 'AI' on other people without their consent. Even when you convinced yourself you're doing it to help another or humanity as a whole (ffs), I could not find any indication the people behind this production have the necessary degrees. You need a medical degree to practice medicine, you need informed consent before you can conduct an experiment, you need a test group and a control group, you need actual knowledge of science. You may also want to check out the work of Getrudis Van De Vijver where she argues that a cybernetic being (e.g. AI) has rights the same way people do. So, not sure if I'm correct, but if I am, this AI experiment violated the rights and safety of real people and the algorithm. If the AI worked as you had hoped it would, why did it cause further harm. That is only, of course, if you decide to blame the AI and avoid taking responsibility. But I probably have no idea what I'm talking about.
