"The new album by Gareth Mitchell (a.k.a. Philosopher's Stone). Sections 1-6 is a more extreme album than its predecessors for Kranky, Preparation and Apparatus. Extreme in that it is louder, quieter, more angular, more contrasting, fuller or emptier, track for track, than those releases. There is also a greater emphasis here on the structure of the record as a whole: the individually shaped tracks are placed deliberately within the whole with a view to creating a certain shape, symmetry and poise. There is no one determining mood. There is an attempt to make use of wide frequency and dynamic range: the record asks the listener to treat sound of searing volume with the same degree of importance as sound barely audible; cavernous, deep bass tones interchange with shrill, high pitches. The observance of space is also a feature. Great care and attention is placed on the precise locating of sound within the stereo field."
