    Its disorienting aspects actually make it a compelling full-length experience, locking you into a maze of drum and echo.

    An engaging album devoid of stagnancy.

    It is an album of well-portioned, difficult grooves that owe as much to craftsmanship as they do to scholarship, the sound of a chronic disciple slowing learning to make his influences work for him.

    You can't knock the songs, but it's hard to swallow whole.

    Transistor Rhythm is functional and stylistically up to date yet modestly unique. [Apr 2012, p.68]

    Thirteen tracks of relatively barebones 808 funk can star to wear, and especially moving at such a (relatively) slow tempo Transistor feels a little bloated by its last third.

    Transistor Rhythm clearly isn't the full-force, wall-to-wall banger album that many were hoping for, but it does show that Addison Groove can successfully and consistently operate in a more relaxed mode.

    The result is delirious party music, which, although at times deliciously dumb, is never – as cerebral Addison Groove fan Aphex Twin would attest – stupid.

    Transistor Rhythm offers the proverbial mixed bag.
