fuck you if you want a coherent song to hum along to instead of some pretentious astral voyage to uranus.
That's the reason I decide to listen to Ultravisitor. The album happens to be a very specific and extreme permutation of musical composition that certainly has no agenda of trying to cover every musical angle. It's a very specialized kind of music that one listens to for a certain kind of release that you sure aren't going to find anywhere else.
nonsense. there's plenty of boring, over-edited crap out there. see autechre. don't they take you on a voyage or something? maybe i don't get it because i haven't set up a dedicated autechre listening-room with surround sound
I don't think there's anything pretentious about this album. It seems that whenever anyone uses the word pretentious they're doing it in a way that suggests the accused person is not able to be the thing they may be projecting themselves as. As if they're some sort of poser. I think Tom deliberate in not presenting himself as anything other than a very dedicated musician; one who happens to be pushing the limits of his imagination and virtuosity.
i read interviews of him blathering about how 50 cycles is the most intense track he's done, it took two months of constant work, etc. then i listened to it and i found it incoherent and annoying.
