A brand new record for 2013
on February 22, 2016
I have been a die-hard fan of TMBG since "Flood" was released 1990. The band has evolved considerably since then and overall they've held up, although with less geeky surrealism. With "Nanobots," they are breaking new ground entirely and there are only dim echos of "Lincoln" and "Flood" by this time.
My own perception is strongly colored by expectations, so I found the album to be disappointing. I found other recent works like "Follow Us," and "The Else" more accessible. If you are a solid TMBG fan, it's worth a listen. If you are a newcomer, this might be the best thing you've ever heard. Or you'll hate it. In any case, it's hard to feel neutral about it.
