Not sure really. Didn't blow me away as those fractured IDM beats seem to be everywhere these days. 5/10
actually it's the other way around, Animal Chin was from 2 albums prior to What We Must (it's on A Livingroom Hush - 2001). as odd as this may sound i found WWM to be VERY reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. there's just something about the thickness of the production. but yeah, i can't stand the broken glitch beats anymore either, i just love the melody and the visuals of the clip. i laughed so hard the first time i saw the band stampeding on screen hehehe

@Stone Birds - i wasn't really looking for factual accuracy, i heard the song, i thought Radiohead. sucks that the originator was overshadowed. it's hard to deny the similarities though.


as for Tyondai Braxton's Jackpot - starts of interesting enough, reminds me of Nobukazu Takemura, wondering what direction the vocal manipulations will take. thinking this should have been 2 separate tracks for the most part. when it's over all i can say is there was piano at the start and nothing really stood out. 6/10

speaking of Takemura this track was later remixed by Aphex Twin but still stands as one of my favourites. i much prefer his jazzy style over the glitchy direction he took in the early 2000s.
