2 stars I don't get what it is with this album, though I can imagine. It's not very progressive, and it's not even so good for fallin asleep like Tangerine Dream. But all in all, it's still quite good, like indie electronic ambient. And it has many influences, like reggae (The Equator), canterbury and african native. Jetty is maybe my favourite song on this, but other tracks has also catchy and even a bit genius rhythms (and melodies). And in my opinion Millions Now Living Will Never Die is better record of Tortoise. All in all it was a disappointment after hearing Alcohall (from Rhythms, resolutions and clusters (A Lazarus Taxon)) and Eden 2 (from Standards). This is quite light but still the sound isn't very modern but childish.This kind of post-rock is boring and lacking energy, though it can be fast (it doesn't make it more interesting - for example those Alcohall and Eden 2 are quite slow but still energetic). Maybe I should give only one star.
