  • Summary: The third album for the Vienna-based electronica-infused post-rock trio was recorded partially in Austria and partially with John McEntire in Chicago.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. A more savage, flawless and impressive sound could not have emanated from these Austrian-born, Chicago-fed composers of laptop jazz.
  2. Utterly modern and utterly compelling.
  3. Radian boasts a sound far deeper and richer than most of their push-button contemporaries.
  4. Radian created a record that listeners have to let envelope them slowly -- and, if patient enough, Juxtaposition will reveal treasures from an aural dig that are a wonderful, satisfying surprise.
  5. The group takes the term "clinical" to new heights, yet this newest effort still sounds more loose than their last effort.
  6. The results sound just fine-- if somewhat familiar to fans of Tortoise, To Rococo Rot, Pan American, or Radian's previous work.
  7. As accomplished as Radian's sound is, Juxtaposition has trouble conveying new ideas throughout the album.
