One of my top albums of 2009. A surprise. On the first two listens, I absolutely hated the coldness of this, but very slowly it crept in, its icy elegance working its way under my skin. Not easy listening, but gripping. There's something icily beautiful and surreal about it. This one's definitely in my top ten. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
