I keep going back and forth between liking and hating the album. Right now I really like it.
I think the trick is to be totally relaxed while listening to it (post wank is a nice time) and listening from the first song. The first 4 tracks flow into eachother nicely—I still dont like tracks 5 and 6
Yep, I still don’t like tracks 5 and 6 either. I think they ruined I Am You, the first versions were a much better. Now the sounds are different, the intro is too long, the voice that starts at 2:55 is weird now with that new effect, and the vocals, I don’t know, there’s something I don’t like.
And I still don’t ‘understand’ the 6th track.
I love the first 4 tracks too. Specially Electroplasm, I think that one is my favorite and in my top 10 shpongle tracks.
What I don’t like about the 6th track is the synth trumpets, they used that sound on track 4, 5 too.
It’s the sound that starts at :
2:09 on Ineffable Mysteries
4:00 on Invisible Man
7:46 on I Am you
You know what I mean?
It’s just my opinion, but don’t take me wrong I love the new album and I have been listening to it like 100 times a day.
