For some reason a few years ago I'd always want to listen to it when I went to Couer d'Alene, Idaho.
Recently though... something clicked. I've discovered the atmosphere on this album - it's unparalleled in all of their work. The depth inside of the music is somehow further...deeper. While the technical elements of the sound are not as interesting perhaps as they will get later on... the feeling is like a gigantic trench. When you're listening to "Stud," your mind just goes deeper into a feeling of nothingness.
I think Amber is very similar in approach, but somehow they went 'all the way' with Tri Repetae. To infinity and beyond.
The dissociative effect of the music is wonderful.
This album sets of my synasthesia like no other. I makes me feel like everything around me is illuminated by the green backlit screens that a lot of 90’s electronic music gear has and I also think of pine tree smell because I used to listen to it on my iPod on epic walks. The atmosphere is so consistent and thickly layered, or should I say crisply layered and Clipper is the standout track to me.
