Not many current LPs can capture a feel of the true electronic music experience and cover many genres while doing it. "Slutty Breakfast", far exceeds that mark, with a cutting edge mechanical sound, full of wonder and weirdness, bridging the sound of early Techno with Progressive and Tribal. Right off the bat, "Natural Selection", sets the mood with a deeply zoned out intro that prepares one for the signature sound of Cryptic Circuitry. "Glory", comes next fusing intelligent arpeggios with all these tiny bits of sound, reaching the very heights of this masterfully programmed release. Then, "Love stuff" explores the down tempo realm with a jazzy funk ride out loaded with rhythm and blues. From there, prepare to have your brain reprogrammed as intricate patterns and hard grooves mixed with moods of hope, despair, and vision crystallize. In the midst of great travels you get dropped in the last two tracks, "In The Storm", and "Atmosphere" which is a true experience of natures beast. What a ride!!!!
