Album Review
Gabe
Reviewed 2004-09-28 
Compilation of electronic experimental music.

1. Noise overture
2. Strangulated stabs form a melody of sorts over a sparse bass line
3. Flatulent dashed lines of bass and glitchy snippets of some radio transmission over that; very strange and somewhat pleasant
4. “Amphibious Blobs Being Chased By Serpentine Cowboys” – too true
5. A bit too much of the Mike Paradinas/Aphex Twin-like “Hey, isn’t this a wacky tune?” self- indulgence
6. Ramshackle little tune with constipated rhythm and chipmunk vocals; now this is delightfully off its head nutso!
7. Pangenitor fall back to earth after the brilliance of the preceding track with a so-so bouncy bass and messed-about vocal snippets
8. “I am going to cover every experimental electronic subgenre in this song”; too much and too little
9. Blippy and stuttery
10. As if assembling itself in real-time from an out-of phase mishmash to a coherent little electronic funk and then over the top to gradual decay again
11. Oh so dull beats/bass and petulantly tossed on melody
12. Mini-epic with ominous rumblings, full-on assault, resolution to moderation
13. Amusingly simplistic or perhaps cynically funny lyrics about selling stuff lamely delivered over a minimally competent guitar loop; I want to laugh at the ineptitude
14. Another looped guitar wanna-be-a-real-song; more funny lyrical/vocal ineptitude
