Album Review

Reviewed 2002-04-10
Purveyors of cool funky electro ambient downtempo, BOC has left Matador (has it really been 4 years already since “…children”?!). Psyche trippy, lush, electro yet organic. Not so pompous or boring as past things – a heavier nod to the noise and beats. “…referred to by the NME as the record they hoped Kevin Shields would have gone on to make after Loveless”. I can definitely see that. This is good shit. Odd numbered tracks through 17, 18, 20 are brief, ~1 min, interludes.

2) trademark piano/synth tones, super crisp heavy drum beat, voice samples
4) punchy simple tribalish beat w/ samples
6)familiar funky downtempo beat
8) chill w/ melodic synths
10) trademark synths, blippier crisper solid beats, acid refs, voc samps
12) double time rhythmic beat, still chill
14) semitabla disco feel
16) trippy watery subliminal blippy ambience, no solid beat, blends into next track-careful
19) epic downtempo feel, subliminal voices
21) crisper locked groove feel
22) ambient synth, no beat
23) silence (oh brother!)
