I first heard hayfever on a promo disc for a UK magazine, which led me to wander into this. I thought haywire was cooler than hayfever after I bought it, then heard tesla, which was a short song, but I liked it. If you know anything about Nikola Tesla, he was a scientist who devoted himself to the study of electricity, but basically failed. The sadness is heard in the song and elsewhere on the album. Patterns was gradually pulling me in with a long intro and the climax after around four minutes or so of strenuous anticipation. Then, as I repeatedly cycled through, As the bubble expands became bearable and almost enjoyable after understanding the lo-fi recording effect by gating and filtering the sound. There is no way I can explain this album to a friend and have him understand and like it. Trackheads ought to love it, though, as you can feel Speedy J's writer's block blasting through and saying I don't care if you don't like it, because I have scraped out all the ideas in my brain here. It is a step above the 4-4 technical G-Spot, which was a leap above the slick electro-style Ginger.
