DASDT (I'm not arsed to type out the full name) is very meloncholy and not as angry or driving as Bilious Paths was. Go have a listen to the samples on Planet Mu.

don't listen to asscadet.

i think it's a great album; very dark, though... marks a nice contrast in the µ-Ziq catalogue.

to answer the original question...

the album is complete shit.


i will admit that i have never held µ-ziq in very high regard, but this is a new low... even for his career of mindblowing mediocrity.

Its a weird album for me. No particular track stands out above the rest, but they are all very good. I don't find that to be the case with many albums. Great cd to listen to all the way through, I think the tracks all really compliment one another.

well, i'll admit, while this isn't mike's greatest work, I DO like it. It's also a grower people, so don't dismiss it after a listen or two. Really sit down and LISTEN LISTEN to it. With headphones if you must. Sure, it's no all drilly and such but it has a certain sound about it... nauseating (in a good way...) at times, sad at other times...
I don't know. It's good shit imho.

great review from some Channel 4 music site
http://www.channel4....?albumId=643198

Mu-Ziq: Duntisbourne Abbots Soulmate Devastation Technique

Eighth album, following 2003's 'Bilious Paths', from Mike Paradinas, one of the most original and exciting producers in the UK electronic underground, whose name is revered alongside pioneers like Autechre and Aphex Twin. Released on his own Planet Mu label, this is another emission from the dark side, featuring the usual melange of freakout drill 'n' bass, acid-fried techno, ambient textures and zany vocal samples that has fuelled his cult following.

there's no "freakout drill 'n' bass nor zany vocal samples." Missed the mark, I say...sounds more like some misguided marketing "review."

goes to show how much they know - it's not his 8th album but his 7th!

i think that mike, out of all the top UK electronic musicians, has really lost it more than any other (with the exception of plaid maybe?)! his recent albums have lost the plot and i'm not even keen at all on what he's done with planet mu either! i hate most of what that label releases! it's a shame because most of what mike did between tango and lunatic was ground-breaking, experimental and fresh for the day. now his stuff just bores the pants off me!!
