Everyone involved has one, and only 2% of them are educated. From listening to and researching a large base of abstract and accessible artists, you get a feel for what the normal level of production, creativity, etc. is out there.
This CD strikes an AMAZING balance between excellent (not just excellent, some of the best I have ever heard) production, accessibly songs and complete creativity.
Every sound is incredibly detailed, tailored to the track and on point. The rhythms are intricate, solid and executed with perfection. Every track sounds as though every recorded instrument and synthesizer is under more control than I can fathom.
The review on here where the person says you need to be high is a blatant example of a completely uneducated review. Just because someone did a load of drugs and now can not enjoy something sobre does not mean it is unenjoyable - it means the person has issues with drugs. I mean this is the same person that tried to say that a ditzy girl is 'normal' on a couple beers or an angry person is like a calm person on PCP. That is some of the most unintelligent, non thought provoking, shallow and utterly ignorant observations I have heard.
My point is to listen to this CD and decide for yourself, I can assure you that if you have a QUASI open mind and appreciate music, you will be impressed. Whether you download a couple albums a week or go to used cd shops and scour for hundreds of hour collecting rare gems, this CD has something to provide you.
Even with the thirty-dollar US price tag, I am going to buy this CD. It is NOT around in used shops on the east coast. If you like this, check out other work under hallucinogen on the twisted records label.
And remember - crack is wack.
