5 stars Tortoise have always been band that liked to reinvent themselves with each new album. every proper studio album differs pretty greatly from the one before. this one is no exception. this album sees the band truly honing their sound, the lovely electronic, post-rock sound they have created. this album seems to be a bit more consistent in how they sound, their many different sound come through as one as opposed to the 3/4 post rock 1/4 techno makeup of TNT and the on-off-on again feel of Standards. the band also adds a much heavier touch on this album, dripping with bass fuzz in certain tunes.

Tortoise has to be one of my favorite bands of all time. i feel pretty honoured to give the first review/rating. it's seems to me that they should be rated much higher than they currently are. i do not flinch to give this album 5 stars. they are more than deserving of a band. and the album itself is definitely a solid 4.5
