I'm still somewhat new to Plaid; fan of Warp so heard of them before, but sadly didn't start seriously listening until The Digging Remedy and now Polymer. I wouldn't be surprised if this is considered their "best." Every tune is playful, thoughtful, well-produced, interesting, inspired, and focused, with a little twist and quirkiness to it, and the album as a whole is every one of these qualities as well. A full listen can be a trip and mentally draining (in a good way). I was fortunate enough to see them live during the Polymer tour and it was absolutely one of the best shows I've been to, sucked me in from start to finish. Personally, I consider it a classic and one that I'll still be going back to as long as I live.

2019 was such a vintage year that we are already into the second quarter of 2020 and I am still listening to 2019 releases for the first time. And this one was worth the wait. Cleanly percussive soundscapes, ambient yet driving and purposeful. Its really good

Quite aggressive for Plaid considering the heavier bass and drive of the rhythm, the dynamic beauty is what shines through. Sparkly, elegant and thoughtful. Plaid knows their place and they hyperdrive through the passage with ease asking us to follow. I am so pleased to hear the idm sound in such a pronounced and overwhelming perfected execution that it has become today in early 2020. It makes me so happy from my nostalgic point of view to see such polished jewels for newer listeners to adhere to their own expectations and inspirations. I hope it never ends. Not just for the sound Plaid help invent, but for others inspired via the Analord series to carry the torch onward. These are the music makers! What say you? Where do we go from here?

Good album, but my copy is defective on disc 1. Both sides have crackling in the right channel across much of the record. I've contacted Warp/Bleep to see about a replacement.

Less than two minutes in and I am 100% sold on this album. Love seeing these older dudes still making sick music. Super inspiring!

Kick-ass album; quality, intrigue, and variety aplenty. My copy has practically 0 defects or damage. Sounds excellent! Glad to see Plaid is still pumping out great ones
