I Staggered Mentally
Mojo recently run a feature on the 50 best electronic records of all time. Most on the list were good stuff I have to admit, but there were a few blatant omissions I think. Not from the perspective of "importance" which I sometimes felt the Mojo list focused on, but from the perspective of overall goodness. One such album that I keep coming back to and that would definitely make my top 50 list is Portion Control first album proper: "I Staggered Mentally". It's quite timeless in all it's harsh minimalism and blunt rejection of traditional song structure. Because of this it has aged with style, feeling even more contemporary now than ever.
