    The sheer density of the tunes becomes an issue right away.

    When the record keeps from overcomplicating things, it's a pretty unique trip.

    While Ice Level's an awful lot to process, it's the finest sort of overload; listen closely enough, and you can almost hear your circuits being rewired.
