Really, really good album. It somehow needed to grow on me since it didn't satisfy me on the first listen. Rather sophisticated compared to other albums in my opinion.

I really came to this album with a very critical ear. After a few strong releases, Recondite was on my map for had to check out. When Iffy came out I was a little put off by the cover art and being on the Innervisions label which has hardly any quality control. So when this cd came it sat on the shelf waiting for the right time to play. This time came about 3 weeks ago on a long car trip to my families for the holidays. And Iffy was put on. It took me a few listens to get to track 2. Baro is such an excellent opening track. The way Recondite builds the track is something special. His attention to rhythm and his well placed accents always keep the pace at a subliminal but continued pace. Usually very infectious. And the combination of melody makes Baro a standout. Now still being critical, tracks 2,3.4 started to dull me. I hate to be pompous but my techno ear is experienced and critical. Especially on Recondites style. However tracks 5,6 & 9 are fantastic in their own way. Buteo has a Chicago jacking rawness to it that makes it great. Duolo is demented and like the opening track, quite a builder of excellent rhythm. When I saw the track lengths I was a bit skeptical as well. Usually I want my techno tracks at least 6-8 minutes for good mixing, anticipation, buildup and letdown in the standard way. Most of these play at 4:30 to 6 minutes. Which in fact makes you want to play them a little more. I suppose that brings a little pop element to them. Meaning you want to okay them often and in a row. Usually and mostly you will want certain songs to repeat. This is what I have found. Glint is also a big winner. Koner and Steady are little more downtempo and melodic. Jim Jams is a cool way to end the album. I will need to revisit 2-4 to see if I can play them a bit more to just let the album play but I keep playing certain tracks over and over. Whatever mood or track I get stuck on. Anyone who's into techno should enjoy this. If you like more serious sounding techno. My critical ear was won over.
