Nope. . . quite the opposite. I recommend listening to this (and the entire album) on the highest quality phones or hi-fi you can muster. The production is quite outstanding.
So relaxing !! Off to check out the album :)
Mmm. This is wonderful.
Wonderful album!!

Saw them live in "de Melkweg" in Amsterdam and I have to say these guys rock on a live stage. The album songs are a bit staccato due to the drum computer they use, and it's a bit over-produced. The live band is awesome though and I can highly recommend their album "live sessions"

After having heard them live the album grew on me, love it now!
OMG this is even worse than the previous song by Arcade Fire...

BAD-BAD COVER!
 
Why? It looks like a pleasant scene to me, a bit Scottish with the Scots Pine in the foreground and glen loch in the background. I've seen far worse album covers in my time.

Are you still stalking Marina?

Loving this type of music the more I hear it....

I'd be careful about expressing violent urges online.. Oh and excellent album by the way, one of my top 5 of 2010.


I still cannot believe that Bonobo wrote this album...

 

Excellent album!

It reminds me of soundtrack music in an indy film?!

I just read she's self-trained — that might explain why *grin*. Seriously though between her singing style and Bonobo's beats I thought somehow she must be related to Massive Attack but that isn't the case. This is a good song.

Vocals sound vaguely Bjorkish.
BAD-BAD COVER!
Very nice — 8 for me too
Pretty good - 8!

Ha - that's funny! But wrong {#Neutral}
  well, I guess that could be wrong - maybe it does sound better backwards.  It can't sound worse.


I turned it off because I couldn't take this song anymore - the pulsing is annoying - but then I missed the beautiful rendition of the next song by the Cowboy Junkies.  Rats.

Love this one so much.  This one of their best.  I saw Bonobo in concert, and Simon (creator) had live musicians playing what you are hearing.  Simon also not only mixes and does dj stuff live, but he plays a few of the instruments too.

Heard others songs by this band here, I thought were pretty intriguing. Looks like this is a new album, may have to check it out.
Damn - missed me a first comment!

Loving this.... 
Hey!  I can leave a babble again.  Way to go RP!  Coool set of music, as usual.  This tune is interesting too!
