The second one started off nicely enough then gets downright challenging to listen to and his switches push that limit of what's acceptable, but that's part of the charm, too. I have to admit, I've never heard these longer songs. I was hear when he was shrinking his time-span - or maybe I just didn't have the patience for them. Regardless, I'm actually glad to be having this conversation.
Really reminds me of the experimental/improvisational vibe (Plastikman comes to mind) a lot of songs I've heard have managed to capture. Truthfully, kind of pissing me off that he was such a lunatic that he couldn't be bothered to polish these up. Even his outros are interesting to listen to.
By the time I'm on the third one I'm convinced he's insane, something of a genius, and suffering from profound hearing loss. Still glad to have heard him with your ears but kind of pissed, all the same. Brilliant ideas obscured by his own pathology.
Yeah, I always thought he has more raw talent than 90% of the people I have seen roll through the production forum, but it is seriously hampered by his highly questionable mixing and complete lack of organization and follow-through.
He had this other song called "neckcramp" or something that sounded like some kind of cross between shoegaze, trance, and house. It was crazy and awesome. Wish I still had that one.
[Edit: here is my review of that track back when he posted it. His original post got deleted when he did, I guess.]
