It's almost impossible to recall another music record that sounds even remotely similar to this one.

I don't think I've ever heard another album as complex as this one in terms of composition and musical ideas. I mean, listen to tracks like 50 Cycles and then listen to Steinbolt. They don't even sound like they were made by the same person.

good concepts, mostly poor execution

drums are way too soft compared to other instruments

i think 4 times throughout the album i turned up the volume so i could hear the track better and then my ears got annihilated by some random electronic noise 10x louder than the drums
wasn't impressed by the first couple tracks but boy did this album pick up the pace after that. by the time 50 cycles rolled around i just kept getting blown away more and more. some tracks on here are simply strange or a little bit confusing, and then others are absolutely EXPLOSIVE. these tracks somehow manage to be incredibly noisy yet still fairly cohesive, and it's lovely.

fav tracks: steinbolt, menelec, 50 cycles, iambic 9 poetry, an arched pathway
least fav track: i fulcrum
