  • Amazing,I love it eventos more now than back in the day.
  • Astounding songwriting, barbaric production.

  • I remember how alien, difficult, and almost unsettling this album used to be to me. But those are the best, because the songs never tire out, and the more you dive into it, the more the album slowly starts to reveal itself.
  • Love this album. I remember very strongly being lost in a magical world of ... essay writing for uni (yay!?) and listening to this and Machina II (definitely yay!!)
  • the best album of all that I've ever heard
  • Poor mixing and uneven songs. Some really good stuff though.
  • It was 3 bucks at my local record store. Now at the time I was quite hungry, I had 2 options: spend the 5 bucks in my pocket on something nice to eat, or buy this... I chose food. Later, I discovered I had another 5 bucks in my pocket and bought this. win win.
  • Underrated. [2] Worst? This is one of my favorites of theirs.
