Album Review
Mandy Khoshnevisan
Reviewed 2004-02-09 
Sort of electronica-pop-ambient-spoken word with lots of beats, a lush, dark sound, and a huge sense of humor. Spacey, metallic beats, lush, slightly chaotic or dissonant sounds, with samples, sung vocals, or funny spoken word. Always off-kilter and at least a little cartoonishly over-synthed. This is great! Spoken word pieces are: 5, 6, 8, 12, 15, 17, 18

*1. * (5:52) lush, full slow pop, with placid acoustic guitars, male vocals in harmony, layered over with dissonant car screeches and metallic slams.
*2. *(4:13) industrial, dark, spacy with delicate poppy playful female voices
*3. *(3:52) samples from funny British painkiller commercial, with soothing/metallic celtic-y background
4. (3:43) buzzy, uneasy, with impassioned voice singing “What is life”
*5. *(4:34) Spoken word instructions for T-Shirt operation, over non-tempo slow buzzy elec guitar arpeggios
6. (0:41) Collection of voices discussing: Is this a Setup?
7. (3:06) funny countoff! Then rockin’ out, synthy style; a “rock” song with yell-sung vocals
*8. * (6:22) laid-back funky groove under spoken distorted story about Used Fruit, with female-sung chorus
9. (0:28) weird little piano-synth interlude; segues into 10
10. (3:49) synthy sax duet over slow plodding funky blues; half-spoken occasional vocals and harmonies (accented in German)
11. (3:39) oversynthed funk, drugged-out ahhs; “rap?” about the Scientist; goes psychedelic halfway through
12. (0:50) voices discussing: “are you coming with me?”
13. (3:38) helicopters, dark bleak noises, ominous droning vocals; takeoff of Eliot’s “the Hollow Men”
14. (6:07) slow, drunken over-wavery tuneless guitar/synth, scary background music; tuneless half-singing
*15. * (5:41) echoey drums, industrial sounds, hollow-sounding recitation of Eliot’s “The Hollow Men”—read in that cliché beat-poet style
16. (6:03) synth-“eastern,” with jingles, synth sitar, electric guitar? with TV-recorded Swedish monologue; gains a beat
*17. *(3:12) FCC! –“shitty.” Dark synthy/guitar rockin, behind sampled people discussing life as a cockroach. (mentions Kafka)
*18. *(4:17) starts w/kitchen sounds; loungy funky electronica behind spoken word about sauce castastrophes
*19. *(3:33) spacy, echoey, happy poppy female vocals, boingy sounds
