In my opinion its the best album of Mouse On Mars and one of the best electronic music ever made. I bought it when it came out, and at first i found it very strange. But when I found my way into it, I was listening to it almost every day for 2 years. The funny thing was, that every time I listened, I could find a little sound or a combination of ideas, a detail that I heared for the first time. It's their most complex album. Niun Niggun was a bit of a disappointment to me because it lacks this complexity. It's a great piece of art, which is not surpassed by now. The way they mix these almost too fast and stressing beats with calm "pads" and the granular sounds as well as the weird melodies and he live drumming is just great. The album is still a great inspiration and somehow i wish, that pop music could be more like this.

This is easily my favourite mouse album. It's intricatly put together with an abundance of details, all of which just flow into a very satisfying musical experience.

I've found it to be one of those rare albums which leave you feeling like you've really benifited from it in some way after some solid listening, and yet is also very nice to play in the background.

I read a comment on another MOM album that referred comparatively to Autoditacker as a "more serious" work, and also a more difficult album for the "uninitiated" to get into.

Although I agree it's technique is a difficult one, I find that that's where it stops being serious. To me, the sound of this album, heard as a whole, exudes a feeling of "Funny", even if created through complex frameworks.

As for the "unitiated", I find it relative, for he might be attracted (or repelled) by the Funny [TM] surface, even if not noticing the intrincacy.

In the "Mouse-on-mars-average-richter-scale" this one has, frankly said, not a huge impact. Quite a lot of softener has been applied on this one. Yet, it has got something... Something all Mouse on Mars records have. Only Autoditacker, should be recommend for all the Mouse on Mars novices.
Should I add they somehow meet Stereolab here? I reckon I should...
Good for a start, then move on to something more serious, say Ideology?
