    This one took a couple of listens to sink in but even when I thought it had thoroughly saturated...it still felt like there was something to be revealed, something else hidden in all the empty space the album created. But that is the problem with Digital Surrealism, its gives you the impression that there is more beneath the surface when there simply isnt. This sonic trickery wreaks havoc on each listen because Konx-Om Pax does an excellent job at creating a familiar ambient sound, but due to the album's mediocre execution it cant help but point to something much better than itself (Oneohtrix Point Never, Aphex Twin, etc..). The record then naturally suffers from this lack of an original distinguishing statement. This is however at its core a very promising debut, there are some great sounds on this record that suggest a budding talent. Full Review »
