Scorn is beyond the petty concept of individual opinions.

"the whole concept behind scorn and the entire post-post-post industrial, techno, etc. minimalist dub thing is that the music is totally devoid of "meaning". or, at least the kind of meaning that weighs down such trite fair as "popular" music. that is to say, that the above reviewer is totally missing the point of Scorns work. or maybe we just see it differently. anyway, if someone just wrote a piece of software to crank out scorn-esq. albums every month, I'd buy all of it. actually, I've just totally confused myself. I am however glad that there is one other person on the face of the earth that likes firstname.lastname@example.org"
An o.k. later-era album

"Another Mick Harris solo effort under the Scorn banner, this album doesn't vary much from the style he once chose with "Gyral". Mick is still one of the best drummers ever, but in the late '90s his work missed inspiration and energy. For those who don't own any Scorn album yet, "Zander" is a good first purchase. For the others, especially for those who have already listened to "Evanescence", "White Irises Blind" and "Logghi Barogghi", this album could be a rather one-dimensional affair. Mick's rhythm patterns wear thin after a few listens, and this album lacks the vocals/guitars/melodies of early Scorn releases. However, it's still much more interesting than plenty of music coming from today's drum n'bass/ambient house scene. Other recommendable Harris releases in my opinion are:Mick Harris & E. Bernocchi ~ "Total station" (4 stars)Equations of Eternity ~ "Veve" (4 stars)"
A great CD

"What a great album this is. For me there is not a single song on it that isn't at least very good.
Twitcher: 5 stars all the way. It has constant loud groan and drone, perfect opener as it takes a while to get going. Beautiful track.
Well Sorted: 5 stars. This one's beat seems unusually syncopated even for Scorn. The ambient sounds contrast the beat very well.
Strand: 5 stars. Easily one of my favorite Scorn songs. This one has all the elements of this kind of music in spades. The tambourine is addictive. My favorite on the disc.
Well Sorted: This is one of the more popular on the disc. People who like Scorn often point to this as one of the best. I say 5 stars as well, but I'm partial to Strand, Check the Sonic, and Flick. I like the ambient sounds in every song on the album, but this one is exceptional in that regard.
Check the Sonic: Another off the charts 5 star track. The bass has a kind of pitch bend, portamento, or warble sound to it that is as catchy as it gets.
Flick: I get cravings for this song which nothing else will satisfy. Absolutely beautiful bass with ambiance that creates perfect atmosphere. A big 5 stars again.
Those Who Know: 4 stars. Ultra heavy bass short track. At just over a minute it's not quite a song, but it is the heaviest bass of any other tracks on the album. Great for finding rattles in your stereo equipment. I like the remix on Whine a bit more myself, as it's more developed.
Not Answering: The treble makes this track unusual for the album. The noisy chime sound reminds me of the cymbals in "That Don't" from Greetings from Birmingham. It's haunting, addictive, and makes them both 5 stars.
416: 4 stars on this one. It's a very good track, just not quite as good as some of the others. Straight forward and groovy, I love its slow fade out. I like the live version a little better.
If it came down to either this or its half live, half studio counterpart, Whine, it would be very close, but I would probably go with Whine. It's one of Scorn's top 3 albums I would say."
