Some people might understand the title of this release as Venetian Snares bragging over using synthesizers in a way only he could. But it seems to be more of an inside joke for him as he explained in an interview:

Q: So where does the album title come from?
A: It’s just that the idea of traditional synthesiser music is completely absurd, but I was sort of making songs – melodic, structured songs – so, as far as synth music goes, it’s pretty traditional.

Q: I wondered if it was to do with the way that modular synths have become trendy and you’ve been using them for a while?
A: No, no, no. It wasn’t a diss on anything like that. Honestly, I just thought it was a really funny title because it’s ridiculous – traditional synthesiser music, as though it’s some cultural thing that’s set in stone…

If I knew more about this music I would mix "Everything About You is Special" with something by Blaerg. Maybe there is someone out there willing to do the digging for a proper, balanced set.

for all of you that don't know a lot about synths, about 50% of the companies mentioned in the thank you are modular synth companies. In lamens terms a modular synth is a build your own synth kit; a really fucking complicated, unbelievably expensive synth kit which is most of the time used for creating experimental IDM. some of the more popular companies mentioned are Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, and Noise Engineering.

Ahhhhh if by these songs I like the IDM, ramdom, experimental, acid and unexpected good song I am glad to have discovered this treasure and have it in my mp4 player.

For some reason, this release reminds me of "A Broken Frame" by Depeche Mode...
... though this sounds nothing like that album or Depeche Mode in particular, the vibe of the modular synths conjures up the vibe of ABF.
Nice release!
