Still very fresh after 11 years. And yes - the music just sounds like it is happening on its own, like its made by nature. Timeless, grab this piece from a golden age of breakcore.

I have heard a lot of hype about Xanopticon. Some have even compared him to Venetian Snares. After listening to this EP, I can proudly say that he lives up to it. This is about 25 minutes of the creepiest music out there. Hymen Records has done it again with this haunting, mind-pummeling, absolutely horrifying release. Listen to this album in the dark if you wish, but don't expect a good night's sleep if you do.

I guess it sounds like the latest Autechre's stuff (i.e. Confield, Draft 7.30 and Untilted). Very abstract and chaotic. Truly music for mind.

Amazingly Xanopticon has out done himself. This release is mind shattering. Although this an E.P. it is almost a half hour of some of the best music ever made. Deep, dark, it doesn't even sound like someone is making it, the music just sounds like it is happening on its own. Like some sort of quantized puzzle is coming together out of the depths of the unknown. There is a lot of stuff going on here, his attention to detail leaves no second empty in this masterpiece. It breathes, bends, and twists. Deeper and deeper and ever more complex layers of sound are used to achieve his unmistakable style. To me his music sounds like fractals, where each corner bends to infinity and back. If you ever get the chance to see him live, consider yourself lucky. Being able to watch him live is as mind blowing as the music itself. This release exceeded my expectations, a must have.
