Markus Popp rules, OK!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yeah, I know that we have a Mouse on Mars'er on this album, but this has a much more 'Ovally' feel to it than a MOM sound (track 7 'edu' bears a similarity to the ambience of the fabulous "Iaora Tahiti" album though, with a similar warm bounciness to it). Actually, I'm biased, being more of an Oval fan than a MOM one.

As mentioned below, these musical 'scratchings' could be fabulous background music but, as for most eclectic electronica, deserves to be properly listened to through headphones.

It has also been noted elsewhere that there are few 'catchy' tunes here, but I guess that is not the objective with this genre. Anyone who is moved by this kind of music could do worse than sampling Zoviet France - not much of their music available unfortunately, but "Collusion" is a worthy purchase; or The Hafler Trio - try "Seven Hours Sleep", or "A Thirsty Fish" (the latter not available at present I think).

I won't mention fave tracks, 'cos this is just an album to listen to and enjoy.
