If someone asked me to pick one album that can defuse the pretentiousness of annoying musos, I’d remark on the odd specificity of that question and then recommend this album. This is music about music. The deeper you are into music culture, the more you know the tropes, and the more history you know, the better this album will be. The tunes are musically strong and surprisingly danceable mixes of electronic, rock, and a billion other things. It’s good even if you don’t get the jokes, but great if you do.
