  1. A fascinating musical ride that defies any attempt at categorization.

    Level Live Wires, like "Waking Life," is not simply art for art’s sake, but rather an invitation to drift off into bliss within your own head, guided and fueled by the creative juices of another.
  3. Initially underwhelming, as samples and tape loops are pieced together, Level Live Wires retains that same eternally unfamiliar tone that, as with "Donuts and Person Pitch," keeps you hooked to these patchwork pieces.
  4. Despite all the different guest appearances, Level Live Wires never feels hodge-podge or unsteady.
  5. That vocal in 'The Kill Tone Two' is unfortunate, because the rest of the album approaches some spectacular peaks.
  6. Madson finally strikes an equitable balance with Level Live Wires, a tightly constructed soundscape that hangs together more cogently than anything he's conceived to date.
  7. Level Live Wires, is almost a pitch-perfect continuation of 2005's "Burner."
