It's a very peculiar album and it will divide the fans. I'm kind of in the middle. I love some of the tracks but overall feel like this should have been a side project and not an "Amon Tobin" album. It seems like a waste to not have any beats in there, knowing how good he is at making them, but I'm holding my breath for the other side projects coming out this year, I'm sure some of them will bee right up my alley.

Talking about that, I got that Electronic Sound magazine with the first track from Only Child Tyrant. It's more of a teaser really, being only 1mn29, but it's a fun little track, mixing surf rock guitars and the usual Amon Tobin beats.

interesting..when i was listening yesterday, i had an immediate and distinct impression of this is the most amon-tobin-sounding thing i've ever heard
=P

An excerpt from T.S. Elliott's poem The Waste Land...

"What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,
(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust."

Amon's newest album (as new alias Stone Giants) is out and I really love it. It might actually be my favourite of his latest projects alongside Only Child Tyrant. Maybe because it's not as singled out as his other side projects and sounds more more heterogeneous, closer to his older albums.

Not too fond of this one. I like a couple of tracks (How do you Live, Rise to Ashes, Phaedra) but the rest is a little bit boring...

Yeah, gets a little too weird for me at parts. I still think Stone Giants should have just been an Amon Tobin album with some of the good tracks from How Do You Live.

some of the album really feels like he's droning on a bit and being self-indulgent. i'm a sucker, though, it works for me cause i have been really enjoying his more ambient-ish turn lately
