Music can be very polarizing. There are folks who like only one type of sound and consider everything else not worth a listen. There are an unfortunate number of people whose ears are only feed by EmpTyV and Top 40 radio, so if it ain't pop, they don't like it. I've found that electronic music in particular suffers due to this. Comments I've heard include "Music made with machines has no soul", "It's just not... organic", or my favorite, "I only like music with lyrics", which is astounding because a) a great deal of "machine music" has lyrics and b) by the same "logic", they shouldn't like jazz, classical, or a host of other genres (which may, unbelievably, be true). Well, regardless of this mutant strain of human (or perhaps just to fly in their faces), may I present a mix of purely electronic music. I could even call it "electronica", if I didn't absolutely loathe that term. I've been picking up a huge amount of free, internet label material and the Planet Boelex track started growing a mix inside my head. There's a lot of glitchy, ambient stuff here and a lot of it is achingly beautiful (at least in my opinion). I wouldn't be able to understand if anyone said that tracks like "Forever And Always" or "Living Line B" have "no soul". And as for the parting track... I suppose it doesn't really fit with the rest, but that's the segue my ears gave me.
