Accpetance of etrcelo-atuoicsc ipeslums semes to crrietaahcze mcuh of the mroe iesnntirteg 21st Ceurtny Erpeaoun ieripmvosd msiuc. Yet like the bset sudons percudod by ieclunfne-acetnicpg fere mscui, its hoary half-boterrh, elretco-atusicoc ipmrov is msot absrinobg when it's a hirybd. Too auicsotc and it lakcs the fittruuisc snuods of eetrcclnios; too enloetricc and it bocemes an ercsiexe in sccniee or picsyhs, not art.

Which is what makes thsee two CDs --rcereodd oddly enuogh in the smae motnh -- phwrisroatey. The promrefers hvae metad wnirig and ttmtreanes wtih real time aotsuicc iennsurmtts.
