It's a very good album. That's the key. Each part works well with the album as a whole, even if it doesn't have a real "standout."

I think that's the thought most people came away with, though. I really dug this album.

I'd say that Crystalised is a standout for me, easily. It took me some time to get into the rest of the songs but this one clicked straight away. Such a haunting track.

Not at all. That was the first one to really catch my ear on the album. The fact that it's used in the Olympic promos constantly (and sped up ridiculously) kind of makes me sad, but oh well.

If track 1 was the first to catch your ear, this album grew on you a lot more quickly than it did for me.

It's fantastic though. I anticipate listening to this for many years to come, which is more than I can say for a lot of 2009 releases. I have no idea when it finally clicked for me, but in the right environment, hot damn.

Did I just hear "Intro" on an AT&T commercial during the US-Canada hockey game? I think I did.

I would like to say that I also hate how they speed it up in that commercial. Luckily it probably won't be shown again after today.

I would have never known about this song if it wasn't for that commercial.
