There really isn’t too much of anything that is original on this track list. I have this theory that once you’ve heard one or two electronic dance/trance/trip/techno/whateverthefuckyouwanttocallit songs, then you have basically heard them all. Each six-minute track is predictable, with drum and snare beating at the same monotonous tempo, and synth and obscure vocal samples building up and leading into the inevitable drop of dance music madness. If my life were a foreign car commercial, or if I had a binky in my mouth to match the furry boots all my girlfriends and I had worn to a show at the SaltAir, I would love this music.
