Super Rare "Much like the early work of Oneohtrix Point Never, Peter Tran’s Curved Light productions slide from peaceful passages to lawless synth lines without warning. The songs are able to lull the listener into a light sleep cycle one second and jostle them awake with jagged noise the next. As the album’s final track ( Super Rare ) ventures into the red side of the spectrum, the song suddenly stops, creating a mood that’s equal parts anxiety and relief.
☆½ ~ I think it's a good/enjoyable album overall, but at the same time many passages are kinda irregular or simply boring. Or consider a donation? Track List.
