Talk about quitting while you're ahead, this Jega release is certainly a masterpiece in the art of letting cold, electronic music come to living and breathing life.

<i>Geometry</i> is definitely a step above their last album, yet also an obvious different direction. <i>Alternating Bit</i>, with it's <b>Tron</b> reference in both the song title and the eerie synth loop that surfaces throughout the piece, is quite appropriate to start the album off. It could have easily been the underscore to the movie, or more appropriately this album could be the soundtrack for the soon-to-be released <b>Tron 2.0</b> film. It's as if the album was not written by humans using machines, but rather by the machines themselves. The warmest piece is <i>Geometry</i>, with lush synth pads that weave through space with ease. Meanwhile, much of the rest of the album contains elements of glitch. The closest other group I have found that sounds similar to this album is <b>Twerk</b>, but I believe Jega set the standard. How they could come up with an album like this and not record anymore is beyond me.

This matador issue of Geometry was actually a digital copy of the original mastered by Dylan himself where as the planet-mu version was actually remastered in london.

Dylan actually prefers his original and the remastered version was so poor planet-mu after this release stopped using masterers and did it themselves. Quote from Mike Paradinas below

"Yes, I prefer Dylan's original too. That was the last release we had "professionally" (ha!) mastered for that reason. With this sort of music it's probably better to do it yourself with speakers you know. I do most of the mastering myself now (if it needs it). My rule is - if it sounds good don't fix it. Usually it's only needed if there are relative quality/eq mis-matches in which case you need slight eq adjustments, noise reduction (keep it minimal), very mild peak compression/limiting etc. But basically I try too keep the artists original vision."
