    ET streaks the gauntlet from breaks to hip-hop to trance and downtempo with seamless, soothing fluidity. [Oct 2003, p.90]

    At seventy-eight minutes, Emotional Technology gets a bit long in the tooth, but you get the feeling that the myriad streams of sound that pass between (and through) his ears have finally nestled together in a grandiose manner he envisioned. [Sep 2003, p.99]
  3. BT's attempts at rock 'n' roll lead to schizophrenic sloppiness.
  4. Just a shade less stunning than his last full-length, Emotional Technology at least establishes him as one of the better album constructors in the singles-driven world of dance.
  5. He's too reserved as a solo performer to keep things interesting. [5 Sep 2003, p.77]
  6. [He brings] a real, radio-friendly pop element to electronic-based tunes he hopes will cross over.
  7. To be fair, there are a few club-friendly beats strewn about this album, but for the most part they're so candy-coated with a thick glaze of kiddie-friendly dance pop you'd hardly notice.

    The music of BT is something that you either get or don't get. This album is a little different from 'Movement in Stil Life'; The music of BT is something that you either get or don't get. This album is a little different from 'Movement in Stil Life'; but all the hallmarks are there - incredible attention to detail, crazy / inspired sample exploration, and the unconventional mixing of disparate elements to create something unique and beautiful. Maybe this album isn't for you; but really, who are you going to trust - the fans, or the E! franchise and the words, "Judge it by it's cover"? Expand

    An incredible album filled with variety. Extraordinary production values, and a real emphasis on the music, rather than the packaging.
