Aspects of Physics :: Systems of Social Recalibration Review
Finally, an album exists for people who like the sound of their modem connecting to the Internet. With a combination of purely electronic bips and bleeps, Systems of Social Recalibration sounds like a computer trying to turn itself inside out. The opening track, "Pulse Width," has a drum machine track that is reminiscent of the skipping cadence of a poorly burned, dirty CDR. With the addition of simple ambient guitars, repetitive melodies and subtle rhythms, this album is listenable, but I was left with the impression that the music was attempting to format my brain. Recalibration, eh? Try electronic brainwashing. If you watch The Matrix over and over again and believe that computers rule the world, you should probably add this album to your collection.
