My favorite Tortoise

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Out of the 1st four Tortoise albums, I think this is the best. The first two Tortoise albums stood out for their extremely sparse and dry sound but on TNT, the production is much lusher and the group fills up a lot more of the sonic space. New elements like IDM and lounge music mix with the traditional Tortoise trademarks (twangy guitars, cinematic grandeur, chugging rhythms, chiming tuned percussion). The album is all over the map stylistically but manages to weave a coherent tapestry of sound. Definitely a fun album to listen to whether you are studying, driving, or simply watching the old lava lamp.

[This review is based on the 1998 CD; I have not heard the latest reissue.]"
By far there best Sonic Recording!

"This album starts slow and creates a BOOM! once you hear it you cant lay it down. Production wise its well produced and engineered solidly, Flawlessly- so all the beats and sounds -drums base..etc. are completely solid, when I say that the album is SONIC-LY SOLID I mean that the sound builds momentum and moves swiftly. With the opening of TNT ...that incorporates all the elements of the instruments into what a progresive BOOM-ING sound it should be. While the single JETTY consits of cinematic marvel on the grounds of tinker elektronika that fits the bill of a whopper of a guitar solo soundscape.
Overall its the elements of the whole genre that compound the style of music that create the mood and linger without bore...still it is a greatly produced album quite frankly the best from the rest. It really is an album that fans can identify as the best sounding and preformed. All the stuff that PROGRESIVE ROCK IS MADE OF IS FOUND HERE- the elements of simplicity and the complexity of sound can be drawn as an album that can be discussed as a futuristic-rock sounding disc- as well as a balanced sounding progressive work of art, with the album cover suggesting simply.. a stick figure that translates into a gigantic vibrance of sound."
