This album is ambient music in the truest sense. With the exception of the thwump-thwump-thwump noises of the opening few minutes, most of the album drifts by slowly and frigidly. I've definitely put this on a few times and forgot about it (or fell asleep). The one time I listened to it on the way to work, though, it sort of opened up a new dimension to the album. Basically, most of the album sounds like a 45 minute subway ride on a cold morning in New York, except replace the sounds of people with slow scraping, whirring noises. The album is, in its own way, a sort of adventure, shifting through various sounds and tones. On the back of the sleeve, the artist thanks "everybody I sampled", which makes me wonder how much of the album consists of extremely slowed down samples, and what the artist is sampling.
As for the album's title, well, maybe the soundbite at the end of the album can explain that one a bit better. 7/10 -- Paul Simpson (10 December, 2008)
