I'm a big Amon Tobin fan...Island Row is more melodic/groovy/jazzy than AmonTobin, and equal, ear-candy-wise. The songs are remarkably listen-able, but there is so much texture here, my brain and ears are still grasping it all. Not a CD you can comprehend and digest quickly. There is ALOT of content here, and its ALL very good. Usually new CDs reveal their skip-able tracks after a few listens. Not so on Island Row. Don't get me wrong, this is not some dense difficult art-rock electronic listening "experience". Its wonderful background music too. Wade in as deep as you like. Its all refreshingly cool. Its electric pop rock with glitch-pop icing.

Captiol K's 'Island Row' is in constant rotation for me right now. I can't get enough of the intense melodies, glitched out beats, and earnest lyrics. Normally I would not be into an album like this, I tend to like my IDM with out any lyrics what so ever. Honestly, this is the first time I have ever heard it pulled off right. This is what Radiohead (Kid A/Amnesiac) would sound like if they could ever enjoy themselves...they are excellent, but perpetually depressed. The album actually sort of reminds me of Jane's Addiction...although I doubt anyone will notice that. I was in line at the record store buying one of the Orb's two disc albums of remixes, when they staff was playing this. I knew this was what I needed. Hell, even the cover art is great. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed.

A primitivist with a penchant for clanky beats, snaky guitars and wayward effects, one-man-band Capitol K (a.k.a. Kristian Craig Robinson) has crafted an album of exotic charms. With its ever-shifting moods and modulating soundscapes, "Island Row" is an unpredictable blend that has no qualms about starting out with the stuttering electronica of "City" and then flowing directly into the squishy pop of "Pillow." "Anon" drives along as if possessed of a head-trip trauma, while the reverberating "Soundwaves" is not unlike Radiohead tuning into a slightly different frequency. "God Ohm" block-rocks along before nearly decompensating, "Monster" cranks up some savage guitar noise and "Heat" is the sound of a desert ant under a magnifying glass. "Island Row" may seem disjointed, but it does cohere in its own peculiar fashion. Much like a Chuck Close painting - you have to stand back a bit to get it.

His music is so beautiful I could cry at times. Amazing melodies combined with creative sounds & beats. I normally don't like vocals but even the few songs with vocals are great. A must-buy!
