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

it's a great album to throw on whether you are just chilling out and having a drink with friends, or if you're making out with someone.Published on August 29, 2007 by jas_n
