  • Summary: Michael Beckett's third release combines experimental noise with somewhat more conventional guitar-based songs (complete with vocals).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. A buzzing, raw jewel of a record that hints at seemingly limitless possibilities for Beckett's songwriting.
  2. He contorts both his simplistic pop urges and his more obtuse soundscaping, and makes good on neither.
  3. He seems hell-bent on sabotaging his amiable, acoustic-guitar-based songs with the sort of distortion and static that drive most engineers up the soundproofed wall. [Jan 2005, p.114]
  4. 60
    At times thrilling and at times frustrating. [Feb 2005, p.83]
  5. Hovering somewhere between offbeat anti-folk and laptop noise terrorism, Kptmichigan falls short of achieving a genuine hybrid but trails some interesting sonic debris in the process. [#249, p.64]
  6. The problems on the album don’t stem from creativity or intellect, but from execution.
