  WTF. Who put this down to an 8.4? This is the DEFINITION of properly done avant-garde music these days.

Rating: 10 Downloaded this a long time ago, but only recently have I been just realizing how bloody good it is. It's certainly one of my top albums, and their releasing a encore: Anthologies IV, as told by their myspace.
