Is this, like, Warp? I mean, it's just like Warp, hey! This is how most people would comment on this piece of work after listening - they fail to catch the drift, but since it's all so weird and irrational, you'd simply have to love it or risk getting mocked at as an ignorant turd.

Well, Kõrvaklapid is a disappointment. Here you're presented with 11 tracks of jazzy electroacoustic minimalism reminiscent of Plaid, interesting at first (<i>"Kanasupp"</i>) but gradually growing rather boring as all tracks follow the same pattern. It reminds me of an artist's notebook - sheets filled with frantic, abstract scribblings you cannot understand. The draughtsman himself clearly knows what's going on in the depths of his mind - but he'd simply smile knowingly at your inquiries and remain dead silent, leaving you staring at the supposed message, cyphered into a mishmash of pencil lines leading nowhere. Although there is supposedly something big hidden under all this esotericism, it still looks like nonsense. And after a while, you'll grow tired of guessing and leave.

<i>"Kõrvaklapid"</i> (<i>"Headphones"</i>) is not a bad album per se, but it sadly fails to deliver. Ramo Teder definitely knew that this was what he wanted to make. But if he is to make a statement with his music, he'd better do so soon.

Because some people are tired of guessing.
