If the number of your comments had been easily divisible by four, I would have found it more interesting.
On a grey, wet, winter's day here in country Victoria, Australia, looking into another snap COVID lockdown, this is the perfect track. Emancipator's music adds warmth & chill at the same time, a fire pit with the snow falling.

Great song! Now we just need some Ryan Adams on this station!
...my last request no more nagging ha!

Pretty much all music, save experimental stuff like Stockhausen or Birtwhistle, is repetitive. Even Mozart was repetitive. The trick is to have sufficient interest and minor variation within the major repetitive structures to retain the listener's interest, and IMO this number has that.
 
Yes a good Hook helps

Oh so do I.  I was looking for a track I could leave on to entertain the goldfish while I got out in the garden.
the last thirty seconds would have been good to start with and then follow through.

Too monotonous for me. Thanks, but no thanks 3/10.

Mega Moby...better than Phillip Glass. Like his groove a lot
Too bad the comments are so repetitious. {#Rolleyes}
Free at last!

Emancipator!

There's nothing wrong with repetition.  All music has some.  The problem with Emancipator is predictability.

 
I can’t disagree, but I still like almost everything he does.

HEY, WAIT A MINUTE!!!!  This is NOT from the superb Salma Hayek movie of the same name!  
When I am on I5 between the Olive Pit and Dunnigan, it feels like this track is on, interminably.

Fair enough, thanks. To clarify, most any song (by anyone) does not vary in tempo.  I was trying to say that his songs, when taken together, all have a similar tempo, with smaller variance that other arteests.  That is just my perception — scientific inquiry would require too my effort for my lazy bones.
 
It does seem that a lot of the songs I've heard from him do have similar tempos overall, more than other artists I've heard in those genres.  As you said, scientific inquiry would just require too much time and energy anyhow.  His stuff is pretty easy to identify right away - I don't know if that's good or bad though.

For some reason this album cover reminds me of the opening scene from "The Gladiator"...

Most "electronica" music tends to be more repetitive than other genres, as well as use loops and samples - those are elements which define the genre.  It's like you're criticizing a seascape painting for not having enough trees in it.

This is... not good.  Luckily, with PSD I'll be emancipated!

Yup, no disco here as it's missing the thump, thump of da bass {#Bananajam}
Feels like there are tracks missing from the final edit.

Peep Show

In the Channel 4 comedy series Peep Show, "Mark's Women", Jeremy joins a new religious movement, Spiritual Wellness, which defines    Orgones  as "the invisible molecules of universal life energy which govern our moods and our actions", with negative Orgones being the sources of all the problems in the world.
