Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2003-01-20
Super cool electronics with heavy beats and noise. Industrial flavor to it, sweet amalgam of funky industrial ambient noise, chill power electronics, breakbeats and even some jungle tones. Nothing “techno”, no constant bpms (mostly) but certainly heavily beat centric. Good stuff. No vocals or voice samples.

1) quiet ethereal synths looping noise enters after 1min, funky beat enters @ 2.5 min, evolves to industrial feel, breaks to mellow, then beat returns
2) slower heavy beat w/ swirly noisy synths
3) old school euro-industrial feel to the beats, starts stops, noisy
4) cool near downtempo beat w/ interesting synths, picks up to near-breakbeat feel
5) funky undertone juxtaposed w/ weird synth sounds, super hip
6) breakbeats, slow funky w/ 500 bpm drum rolls, trippy and weird, dark toned
7) jungle goth, driving beats with minor melodic synths
8) chill downtempo ambient feel
