Still brings ear tickling surprises with each listen, even after all this time. 5/5!

Excellent Plaid's release, a classic ! Some kind of melancholic IDM. "Marry" & "Zeal" tracks are probably the most interesting.

I bought this LP because it's a Plaid release. It's usually enough to get good music. The first times I listened to it I was quite dissapointed, I couldn't follow any melodies (melodies are a strong point in Plaid material), I couln't figure out the structure of the songs. I usually don't sell records I don't like, giving them a 2nd chance, but I thought I would. Hopefully I did not!
Most of the songs have long intros, skip them or just forget them when listening and after few listening you'll find some great masterpieces on this album. C1 and D1 are ones of this kind, the 1st half of the song is very weird (you can play with the pitch and you won't notice major changes --> because of the weirdness of the melody).
Finally I would say listen to it many times and you'll discover really great passages or even tracks (you'll get a better view of the full track after appreciating the great part, and will discover all the building up to it).
Buy this album and play it loud, you'll get great impressions and feelings!
