what do you think? ive listened to it twice but i really dont like it, it feels like he just fed off the positive critical/fan response from Rifts and made an album based on those expectations. dont get me wrong, it's definitely a progression, but i would have been happier if he hadnt tread the same territory he had in rifts. the title track is pretty good, but pelham island road and where does time go just sounds like watered down versions of "when i get back from NY" and "ships without meaning"... now, if he had made the whole album sound like "nil admirari" i would have been really, really impressed. also if you're digging Returnal, check out the new Emeralds album, "Does It Look Like I'm Here?" it's a very strong album. but i guess if you know about Oneohtrix Point Never you probably know about emeralds already. yes i learned about emeralds last year and liked their album, i think it was called what happened? i didn't realize they had a new one. also, i havent really listened to rifts, even though ive had it for a while on my computer. i think its just the daunting 2 and a half hour run time thats keeping me away from it. i liked this new album, is rifts basically the same as the tracks after the first one? the first track was good and maybe he shouldve gone in that direction for the whole album if his older stuff is more like the rest.
