512. Tortoise - millions now living will never die

originally uploaded by jrd550.
I am one of the lucky million. Tortoise features John McEntire, the drummer from the Sea and Cake, David Pajo from Slint and a handful of other guys who must be from the Chicago music scene... the songs are all instrumental (a constant feature on all of Tortoise's releases, I think) and refuse to easily fit into one genre. At times I find the songs to be brilliant and others boring - that's bound to happen with a 20 minute track, but overall I wish the album was less static and a bit more dynamic.
