The quintessential electronic music album of the noughties. Artsy through and through. Every single note is placed for a good reason and with good measure, everything spells "we met at art school". Brilliant vocalists and haunting lyrics, except on the title track. The vocal version (with Cat Power) was only released as a separate 12" - ah the irony! Brilliant! The beautifully drawn covers add another dimension to the package and make the whole VP catalogue collectible.
Minor annoyance is that the the track beginnings are not set correctly on a number of the tracks, such that the 2-second pause which is supposed to be between tracks cuts into the intros of 5 songs.

What a master piece. Brilliant atmosphere, heavy grooves and basically overtaking most dubstep releases before they were even released.
