personal taste always seems so clear and right to one's self, doesn't it? i mean, my taste is better than almost everyone else's. that's what we ALL think. but i think we CAN agree when music sounds 'different' most of the time. 'mkruszek' commented below that this album is the weakest advisory circle album to date. then someone else replied in horror: "WEAKEST?" and so it goes. but the album 'ways of seeing' is different in my opinion to all the advisory circle albums that came before it. just listen to them in sequence. the experimental nature of each album decreases slightly with each release until, with 'ways of seeing,' there is little left. play 'other channels' back to back with 'ways of seeing.' in addition, there is a real 'song' with real singing on the new album. granted, it wasn't written by the advisory circle, but it WAS included on the album. it just has a different feel to it than the previous albums. so my guess is that if you like the odd, experimental advisory circle, you won't care much for the newest release. it's more 'standard', offbeat pop/electronica if you will. i don't care for it, even though i enjoy all the previous ones and think that the advisory circle releases are amongst my favorite on ghost box.
now, ghost box itself is another example; man, have they changed! too bad. anyway, in my opinion: yes, the weakest to date.

I admit I'd still take any of the KOW releases over his Ghostbox output - including this.

Ghost Box label strikes again. This time, The Advisory Circle’s Jon Brooks transposes the reference points from 1979 to 1986. But the overall constellation guiding the ship remains unchanged; generic electronic music soundracks. Like late last year’s Outward Journeys from The Belbury Circle (of which Brooks is one half), Ways Of Seeing resurrects the timbres of mid-’80s digital FM synthesis. It’s a particular sound that also distinguished the soundtrack for Stranger Things season two from season one. Ways of Seeing offers a pleasing collection of instrumental tunes. It’s the sort of album whose DX7 nostalgia fluctuates between unease and easy listening.
