Excellent reissue of a classic album - fans of Plaid, Autechre and late-1990's IDM will dig this fusion of scattered, glitchy hip-hop beats / drum'n'bass beats and streaks of otherworldly synths and guitars. Essential!

I feel like every release I end up really getting into all of a sudden goes up in price after I get it in my collection. This never used to be this popular.

Much brighter and less wedded to electro than some of his earlier releases, NEO OUIJA shows Lee Norris’ Metamatics project finding its voice. The opening title track adds a drum ‘n’ bass rhythm to accompany the majestic, sweeping synths. “Beautiful Mutations” skitters along like an interstellar crab dancing to a springtime flute. The deceptively simple “Piano” breaks apart and reconstructs music into its component parts: tones, notes, and the sounds in between. But in case you’re feeling nostalgic, “Vanishing Point” brings back the angular harmonies that marked his earlier albums, paired with a slanted sense of melody. “So Many Ways” mixes shrill longing with a synth that sounds like question marks. The final track, “Evening Star” fades out on an ambient note, echoing tones into infinity.
