Although the production on this album was decent and obviously had a lot of thought put into it, I couldn’t help but sit there and think “why?” while my eyes glazed over as I listened to it. The artist gets into a type of psy-trance that is entertaining and interesting, but not necessarily something I would want to listen to in my free time. The first song on the album, titled “Tin Tract Mine,” has a five-minute introduction of random sounds before it goes into something that sounds like a bunch of aliens attacking in a rhythmic fashion. The slow tempo, electronic-influenced sound that this album had was good, but branched a bit far from what traditional music is. My favorite track (of the three on the album) was “Sawed Off at Plasticized Forest” because of the psychedelic trance sound and slightly faster beat. –Julia Sachs
