An Irish Folk album which came out in 1999.
I found it on a sharethread a while back, the cover along convinced me to download it.

super popular when it first came out, some mutatoes still stick to it i guess. No idea where you've seen the dislike.

I fucking loved it until I found out the "samples" are more or less just shortened cuts of the originsl stuff.
The music is good, but the wrong guy gets the credit.

The music isn't my thing, unfortunately. Upbeat chiptune + piano, sounds like something a happy fan of vintage video games would love.

Jung an Tagen – Äussere

It's also pretty good. Very repetitive, sounds almost like it's the same catchy but slightly dissonant melody throughout that's constantly interrupted and starts again. I think I can hear a Oneohtrix Point Never influence too.

This one very recently. I kept giving it a try, being put off because of how different it sounds from how I imagined, and then coming back just for the artwork. I finally decided to give it a full try this time, and I fucking loved it. It's a really good album.

I actually thought about making a thread like this last night.

At least their later albums are all incredible (with the exception of Chiastic Slide). I think TDR should be sued for false advertisement on this one, though. It should have been the cover for Tri Repetae instead.
>>
>>55169628
I had something similar. I expected it to sound more spacey and ambient judging by the album artwork, but what I got sounded way too lively.
Eventually I went in expecting that, and found it's really good, and once you actually get the album, you realize that the cover fits surprisingly well.
