I noticed the previous reviews for this album were short and didn't tell enough. So I shall elaborate. This album is flavored towards IDM. Intelligent Dance Music. The sound is a mix of blibs and smooth atmosphere melded together by welders who are masters of their trade. This is an album that needs to heard as a whole. The sound flows and builds on itself through out the whole album, as if one is traveling a round trip. I've found I can put this album on repeat while working and not get tired or hearing the cd play over. This album is not background noise however, it is very well engineered beats that define a new step in electronic music. For a while I was afraid electronic might stagnate, but this album holds a promise for its continuence due to its evolutionary new concepts. Give this album your ear. You won't be disapointed.

With their first record, 2002's Farhenheit Fair Enough, Joshua Eustas and Charles Cooper created a loyal fan base through touring and implementing the most useful instrument to any artist; word of mouth. Telefon Tel Aviv's elegant complexities of brash electronics combined with the duo's guitar and piano ambience came at a perfect time when down tempo was becoming predictable and the popular IDM sounds from the West Coast were slowly fading. Farhenheit's orchestrations allowed the listener to assign their own emotions, making it the foreplay to their second full-length album.
With their second album, Map of What is Effortless, Eustas and Cooper mark their return with a palate that is significantly stronger and more assertive via forceful guitar chords and the addition of voice. If Fahrenheit Fair Enough was their foreplay, than Map of What is Effortless is clearly TTA's attempt to finish what they started. The vocals of Damon Aaron and Lindsay Anderson leave no question that TTA is ready to present a more visible and wider range of emotional highs and lows alongside their instrumental speak. The gentile creativity of Farhenheit still looms, however the duo explores more raw, frontal sounds as with, "What it is Without the Hand that Wields It", a track that is closer to the likes of Aphex Twin than the TTA previously known. The layers of heart wrenching simplistic guitar strokes, computerized crunches and dramatic vocals of 'What it was will never again' perfectly summarizes this album's overall strengths in an audio and characteristic context.
The obvious audience favorite will be Effortless' first single, 'My Week Beats Your Year.

There's something magical about this CD. The electric piano, guitar, and bass are really mellow and pretty--they have a warm, lullaby effect. It's probably not good music to listen to while operating heavy machinery. The ingenuity of the music comes from the spastic, twitchy drum and percussion sequences. It's like a dot matrix printer got drunk and tried to play along with a lounge group. Seriously, you have to try this. Go to TTA's website, and listen to "Farenheit Fair Enough" and feel yourself get all mellow and tingly.

I'm not sure how to say this, but this is music you LISTEN to. This is audiophile music--you know, people who can justify buying speakers for $2000 apiece, and don't use them to watch movies. In fact, this album kind of only works on good stereos. If you try to play it in a boombox, or with pc speakers, or in most cars, you'll just hear the dot matrix printer/jar full of marbles sounds, and you'll miss the whole song underneath. These are complex arrangements, and they deserve to be reproduced on equipment that really lets each sound breathe and be appreciated. Okay, so that sounds lofty. But try it on a great sound system, and you'll know what I mean when I say this music is genius.

Great glitch-tronica debut from the (late) Louisiana duo is a bit short of a masterpiece, but is still a very classy affair of layered, buzzing beats, underlying memorable melodics, and impeccable production reminiscent of an M83 by way of Squarepusher.

For the sake of not having an overbearing review, I'll keep it short. Telfon Tel Aviv is on a very short list of ambient techno/IDM/what have you artists that I stack up with the greats like Aphex Twin, Autechre and Boards of Canada. Fahrenheit Fair Enough is their first LP and it blatantly establishes why, right off the bat. I don't want to spoil anything, but if you like experimentation with electronic music, specifically with a focus on percussion experimentation, you will enjoy this album greatly. Its particular style of detailing and layering I have not heard elsewhere, either before or after. Even Telefon Tel Aviv couldn't do it again so they had to move on to a different style.

This an an amazing downtempo glitch album, I've searched far and wide for something even similar and nothing even comes close. Beautiful melodies with highly complex glitch on top of them. An absolute masterpiece, one of the best albums of all time.

A great album and an orgasm of symphonic & electronic experiments. A must have album for any Intelligent RDM and/ or ambient electronic fan. RIP!
