Cex - Role Model (CD, 2000)

I have never been a fan of electronic music, but I got turned on to some decent "IDM" by a friend at work last year, and this was about as far as I took it.

In all honesty, I listen to this disc (and the few other Cex CDs that are forthcoming) only when I need some instrumental music to keep my head filled while I'm doing busy work on the computer and I don't feel like listening to any of my Tchaikovsky records. (I don't know a thing about classical music, but I know I like Tchaikovsky. If that makes me sound pompous, so be it.)

This disc is full of blips and synths, and like I said, it's not something I would normally be drawn to. But this guy's clearly a little crazy, and I don't mind going down that road every once in a while.

Plus, the Dismemberment Plan remix on here is pretty sweet.

"Wall Street Kid"

Isn't "IDM" an oxymoron?
