    This is a brilliant album, first in style it is played like a blues rhythm looking for someone to jam with,. Production is sonically tight, great use of low frequencies if your system can handle it. Clean vinyl, beautiful soundstage, fits in with my mo’wax collection; however, it is fragile: first copy arrived cracked via USPS edge to center. Pressing has no pops crackles, cellophane lined dust sleeve, large insert with the artist’s thoughts, and a smaller insert with GSY!BE-era record offerings (ca. skinny fists) A snapshot of pre-2000 electronic experimental scene. I saved the broken one because every bit of this is art, and this album is testament to this. Why people dink around making subjective comments like sounding ‘done’ is idiotic.. it’s a brilliant pressing. Buy this album if you are still reading this and can find one.
    this is aidan girt's (best known as the drummer for godspeed you black emperor!) "techno" side project. it's not really techno music though. first off, the drums are obviously acoustic. there are loops and cuts going on, but the drums weren't programmed on a machine, that's for sure. second off, the keyboards and electronics are subtle - you have to really listen for them. the melodies are mostly covered by guitars and basses and these are possibly real basses. sometimes it's hard to tell. the sound is filled out by what honestly sounds like analog effects work - perhaps even reel-to-reel effects. it all sounds like it was done the old fashioned way.

    that being said.....this sounds like it was mostly thrown together haphazardly in a weekend full of pot and booze then forgotten about and dug up a few months later when it was promptly released as it was without any kind of second thought. the point is, it doesn't sound done. this guy really has some potential in this genre because he's an amazing drummer that's not afraid to experiment with the kit. i'd like to hear him work with an actual synthesis guy, though, as opposed to just diddling around with the equipment....

    however, there are a few points where it comes out sounding alright. tracks two and three jump out as being "done", although the third track is actually a fly pan am song. the fourth flows right into it to the point where it seems like it was actually written as part of the remix, while the fifth carries it right into the sixth.......in other words, this is a really long fly pan am remix/reworking......and you know a record is kind of in trouble when it's almost entirely a giant remix of another artist, even if they are drinking buddies....

    the final decision on this is that it has potential, but that this potential isn't realized. there are certainly very nice parts interspersed throughout the record, but there are also many long boring parts where there's nothing going on but a steady drum beat and some pointless keyboards/sequencers. it's a mildly interesting listen but is not highly recommended.

    aidan....find a synthesis person to work with for the next one! it's easy to make a bunch of sound nowadays but not so easy to make it interesting...
