    i won't even pretend to be able to give a halfway decent review of an album, so instead i'll just point you here:

    i forgot the Tstewart was this year. i need to give that one (and the tim koch) a few more listens. i haven't heard most of the albums in your top 10 yet, which means i have work to do.

    Eingya has it for me at the moment, I have a suspicion it will still be top at the end of the year - such a great album... As for Biosphere, I saw him in Notting Hill earlier this year and he played pretty much all of Dropsonde (well, the jazzy tracks). The vinyl version is all minimal jazz loops but the CD is chopped up with ambient pieces, almost like two albums. Not really comparable to Substrata (but then what is...) but still worth getting.

    einya yeah, i think it's pretty unlikely anything better than einya will be released this year. maybe the secede & kettel collab has a shot, if leraine from tryshasla is any indication of what the album will be like. the first time i listened to einya, i was in my car on my way to work. i missed my exit off the highway because i was so distracted by the music. twice.

    (...where 'better' means 'that i will enjoy more')

    Yeah, I listened to Dropsonde today. Nice stuff.

    Yeah, I think Dropsonde is probably his best since Substrata - one of the best albums of all time. Though I'll never forget my excitement/disappointment at the deceptively titled 'Substrata 2' when I saw it in the shops. Nice packaging though...

    I'm glad you posted a mid-year list! I had missed the latest Type release and after listening, I am so glad I found it! Thanks

    Surprised to not see Yagya - Will I Dream During the Process? on any of the lists. It's bloody marvelous.
