I dunno, "Mother" struck me as pretty unbearable. Worse than the most
overblown prog-rock. THe 2nd disc is pretty terrific though.

Form & Function is out, at least in the states, and it's really good. I
like it quite a bit more than Modus, F&F seems to be focussed more on pure
drum textures. Listening to Photek is, for me at least, like eavesdropping
on the internal conversations of an obsessive/compulsive.

together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
