Not to say that there aren’t good songs, but this thing is apperently better than Malibu Ken? Nah, although there are truly emotional songs, those songs are drowned by uninspiring and bland musical instrumentals. And the thing is that sense that is most of the songs, the other more confrontational or simply just different instrumentals, although good, feel incredibly misplaced. It is like these guys would know that they would bore you so they just added random crap to keep your attention.

This is pretty, just pretty. From to back this gives some beautiful sounds that just drone like ambient electronics, but the electronics are performed with with live instruments.

I believe this is Kanye and Cudi truly realized, with Kanye West’s experimentation and Kid Cudi’s Rock Oriented Hip Hop truly mastered on this album. The only reason why this is not a 10 is b cause I think they could’ve took this a step farther and made it longer, but I don’t know this might be seen as a 10 from me later in the future.

this was really difficult and challenging to get into. Not that it was incredibly experimental, compared to other swans records at least, but for the fact that it was a more accessible one.

This is a pretty awesome come back record that just summarizes this new form of the swans sound.

This was a more emotional and matured musical project compared to sweetener, due to the fact of the passing of his boyfriend. Yeah, decent project.

They need to fix their balance between great production and performances and lyrics that fit in. However this production on this album is really awesome, they just need better song writing and lay off the bella thorne voice.

Overrated, overrated, overrated, OVERRATED!!! I was actually excited to listen to this after discovering that she was sampled for the song "Giving Bad People Good Ideas". Not to say that I wanted a harsh hip hop sound, but I was excited cause the voice seems so good that I wanted to see how it was over a rock track. I mean, I got great vocals, but this album is just boring sexualized garage rock with poorly done lyrics. Like on the song "Juicy Socks" where apparently it was ... read more

I am only giving this a strong 7 because I really don't like the first few tracks (excluding Disorder), But once I started listening to New Dawn Shades I was getting hooked. I'll give it more listens and see if this clicks with me more.

So I am listening and reviewing these albums for a school project, which is why I am caring now, but other from that this is my first album I heard from them so far. This was a haunting experience that does have this grand presentation of a galaxy. I know this has aged a lot, but this album still blows my mind how these kinds of sounds even existed in the early 1970's man. Who other from Throbbing Gristle made music like this that would lead to influence many.

less impressive, but had some great mixes and an iconic track that goes so hard which is the title track. It just doesn’t show much compared to other creative Aphex Twin releases.

So long, and goes so many different styles in more raw forms with even live instruments. This is truly the more challenging and ambitious Aphex Twin project.
