i: Get to Know Your Own Fluids: CD

Jan 29, 2008

Some parts of this record are truly inventive, interesting, and on the verge of genius mind-blowing, and some parts of the record just blow. I know that part of the reason for this is that I’m foisting low-fi rock’n’roll expectations on a record that is not intended to live up to such motivations, but if I’m bored or annoyed regardless of what I want a record to be, then in the end I’ve been bored and annoyed. But when this record works, it works well, especially the stuff on it that’s heavily influenced by Middle Eastern sounds. Those songs captivated me, but when it gets away from that I got dulled out right quick. does have sincerity and rock’n’roll desperation, but in the end it’s one of those records that I wanted to like a whole lot more than I actually did.
