    This debut album from Flying Lotus is still his best work, apart from the latest release "You're Dead!". His music takes you on a trip in your mind, if you let him. Pay attention to it over and over again and you'll be empowered by this hypnotic album.

    Absolutely exquisite electronic album. It's very cohesive, but always has a new interesting beat to throw you. It also follows a story curve. The first few tracks introduce the sounds, then Golden Diva, Riot, and GNG BNG come along (a great series of tracks) are give you action. Then it slowly calms down until the more introspective tracks near the end. It's absolutely amazing. It's a mustAbsolutely exquisite electronic album.

  1. Loaded with 17 tracks, it's an entertaining and fitting addition to the Warp catalog that makes for some highly hypnotic video arcade/coffee parlor mood music.
  2. Assured in its fastidiousness, with enough schizophrenia to make whiplash a factor, Los Angeles cements Flying Lotus’s status as the best producer in a burgeoning scene bursting with talent, categorization eluding whatever scene that may be, whatever it means to be a producer.
  3. The record is almost as seamless as it is engaging, and it subtly commands your attention from start to finish.
