Reviewed 2007-06-04 
IDM/Electronica record with a good set of samples and sounds. The artist seems to draw a lot of his material from rock and 90s pop. A number of tracks easily fall into ambient category and would make great nighttime listening, while others are harder. Some tracks similar to Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, other tracks sound like Ladytron. Maybe even some Vangelis influence.
Track picks: 2, 6, 7, 10, 11 ***FCC Clean (instrumental)***

1. Cool intro beat, IDM style track
**2. Bitching keyboards! Slow start, cool beat later on
3. Chilled, ambient style, waterfall sample
4. Crazy organ sound+vocals. Kind of Vangelis style
5. Downtempo, strange string sounds + IDM beats
**6. Slow intro, pretty epic+menacing melody, cool keyboards
**7. Like 6 but much harder melody and beat in the middle
8. Downtempo, trip-hop beat + organ sound
9. Midtempo, guitar intro, heavy sounding track
**10. Uptempo but slow intro, crazy squarepusher-style beats later
**11. Midtempo, ladytron-style pretty groovy
12. Chilled, ambient style, syncopated keyboard sound
