I can't stress how good the music on this album is. You can instantly tell that the artist really worked hard on perfecting this...there isn't a bad track on this album...every track has a story to tell. I personally love the magical "Laundry". Everytime I listen to this album I discover something new, this is definitely up there with my favourite albums of all time. The beauty of this album is in the detail, it's a glitchy-hip hop-electronic trip. Even when it's fast and furious there a chilled bass line that evens the keel.

To sum it up: a beautifully mastered, ingeniously crafted, timeless record; years ahead of the game. I don't think this can be bettered or topped even by edIT himself. You'll never hear anything like it.

This is Ed Ma's first album and has drawn comparsions with the work of Prefuse 73. In my mind that's rather misleading but if we keep with this comparions "Crying over pros" is more like "Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives" than 2003's "Extinguised" albums. It has also drawn some comparisons to the work of Cex (check the Wire, 245).
The album could be described as glitch-hop. Underneath the tunes is a definite hip hop beat but one which twist in turns in some interesting directions (ie. the hop). Over the top there's nice guitar prolifitating throughout, some outakes from a supermarket purchase, other strings (violins possibly?) all cut up like (ie. the glitch). The production is really tight and I found this quiet an emotional record; the arrangements are melodic and senitmental.
Favourite tracks include Laundry, Dex and Ants. It's a solid first album from Ed Ma and suggests good things to come. Recommended.

LAUNDRY is one of the best glitchstep songs EVER. Featured in Insilico sim in Second Life on more than one occasion, it is making its rounds.

This is one of my FAVORITE songs of ALL TIME. I can't get sick of it. It's emotional and totally cyberpunk.

this album is great, it's some downbeat glitch-hop, very smooth, technical, and groundbreaking idm. it has a lot of instrumentation, which makes it different from most idm, kinda like savath & savalas with the tricky glitch type beats. if you like autechre, boards of canada, prefuse 73/savath & savalas, ect. this album will not dissapoint. a must have for any idm fanatic.
