"The dynamic here is far different than the usual clicks'n cuts. Undulating at times while polarized elsewhere, Kpt.michi.gan is unafraid to meld the abstract with the sensual to negate the sterile, always with precision and throttling volume. Player, Player is a multifaceted yet simply motivated record that forms an entirety from its many viewpoints of electronic and analog composition. The music is futuristic, but it comes from a strong punk ethos, using elements of dub and monochromatic techno to frame fragments of melody and noise and continually build by contrast, layering vertically with volumes that aren't always sensical. Beckett is foremost a guitarist, and much of the album's texture is constructed from muted and distorted guitar, seeking to mimic the warmth and 'natural' noise of the amplifier."
