it is still stuck in my head....
on July 31, 2009
The only thing that overshadows the album itself is their live performance of it. The songs are well structured and find themselves in a niche that only Tortoise seems to fill. The mallet work done in track 4 is impressive as well as inventive, but I think seeing them preform it live really won my heart. If you have ever heard Tortoise before , or if you were brought to this album by a different means, please pick it up. I have not enjoyed an instrumental album such as this in a long time. Lets just hope they can keep 'em coming!
