Absolutely amazing music. Frontier stands out as one of my all time favorite songs. Not impressed with the quality of the vinyl pressing, though. I've had three copies. First had large bump on side A (Eternal) that caused loud pops. Another copy had several surface scuffs right out of the shrink-wrap. Both of the other copies possessed small dimples on side B (Swim) and a slight amount of groove infill at the beginning of Frontier. Overall, it reminded me a lot of the recycled vinyl of the '70s.

This is just an example of hype over substance. Do what you please.

Whatever, what matters is the music, and this sounds heavily inspired by the mentioned release. This release is living on the current hype around AI, but the outcome is old news, been done before.

Holly Herndon and Matt Dryhurst literally developed and taught a machine-learning software to perform live vocal processing. How does this record have anything to do with that?

I'm not sure if I'm correct about the set-up of this 'record', but it is not right to test your 'AI' on other people without their consent. Even when you convinced yourself you're doing it to help another or humanity as a whole (ffs), I could not find any indication the people behind this production have the necessary degrees. You need a medical degree to practice medicine, you need informed consent before you can conduct an experiment, you need a test group and a control group, you need actual knowledge of science. You may also want to check out the work of Getrudis Van De Vijver where she argues that a cybernetic being (e.g. AI) has rights the same way people do. So, not sure if I'm correct, but if I am, this AI experiment violated the rights and safety of real people and the algorithm. If the AI worked as you had hoped it would, why did it cause further harm. That is only, of course, if you decide to blame the AI and avoid taking responsibility. But I probably have no idea what I'm talking about.

Nailed it. Read this article and pick up a few of the books she mentioned. Def AOTY contender for me too : https://www.stereogum.com/2041686/holly-herndon-proto-interview/franchises/interview/

Not so much AI, but, AR! The R standing for retentive, of course!!! Holly does have the necessary degrees! - She lectures at Universities all over the world!!! Argh! I give up!!!

Only your last sentence is correct. Read Stereogum's May 6, 2019 interview with her, "Inhuman After All."
