This will be difficult to explain. If you've studied chemistry, you know that elements like lithium and sodium are actually metals, even though you don't usually see them in large chunks like gold or iron. Well, this album is like a huge, solid block of Art. Not just good techno, not even neccesarily good _music_, but Art. It's like all music tries to produce a certain sensation, while this is the solid, condensed and packaged version of that sensation. All of the songs are amazing, particularly the 'Juanita' part of Juanita/Kiteless, and the climax of Cups, the best part of the original song. Listening to King of Snake is like participating in some violent pagan ritual. Push Upstairs, a song I always thought was sort of weak, is vastly improved from the album version, and sounds downright unsettling with a section of synthetic heavy breathing sounds. There are freestyle lyrical additions to a lot of songs, to best effect in Push Upstairs and King of Snake, while some of the songs (Jumbo, Born Slippy) are almost completley orthodox. In fact, Jumbo is the only song which I don't think is superior to the studio version; it's about the same, but the original was great. The other weak link is Pearl's Girl, which, although it sounds extremely cool with the looped 'crazycrazycrazycrazy,' never quite reaches the transcendence of the other songs.
