Scott Hansen, better known as TYCHO & as graphic artist ISO50, spent nearly a decade since his last effort before dropping "Dive" on an unsuspecting public. It pays tribute to Tycho's prismatic past but spends most of it's time pointing to the project"s not-too-distant future. All versions come in slightly different variations of art!

Long story short, the music on "Dive" is absolutely fantastic, and some of Tycho's best. It takes downtempo, "chill" music to the next level. The mixture of old-school synths, guitar, flowing song structure, cool ambiance, and smooth production makes all of the tracks a joy to listen to. I (just now) tried to pick a favorite track, but couldn't decide on one. "Coastal Brake", "Ascension", and "Adrift" are probably closest, but only by a sliver. This music washes over you like a dream.
The CD case is worth mentioning too. It's one of those paper kinds, but the best looking one I've seen. Has the "Dive" artwork on the front and back, and the inside has the track listings and some intricate diagrams that I can't describe because I don't have the CD in front of me. The CD slides in a protective layer from the side of the case. I have no qualms with any of this.
All in all, I *highly* recommend this CD to anyone who likes ambient chillout music. This has become one of my all-time favorite albums.
Usually my ipod is on shuffle, and I enjoy the instant gratification of that. I actually forgot what it was like to leave a CD in the car player and at the start of every car trip - the music repeatedly convinced me that it is a good idea to always just play the disc, instead of plug in the ipod.
I forgot what it was like to leave a disc in the player (!), and just know it's going to be a good music formula for a car trip every time. (instead of - you just heard this yesterday, so you're ready to switch it up today... that doesn't happen with this album.)
There's a great bonus to this: As a result of repeat plays, lots of memories are attached to it from my summer.
I'm also a musician, so I really enjoy the bendy keyboards as well! :)
