The Octopus Project - Hexadecagon (V0)

Just in time for the end of 2010, The Octopus Project has released Hexadecagon, the follow-up to their 2007 breakout Hello, Avalanche. Their new rapport with the music industry has afforded them many luxuries, included dedicated producers and a wider range of instrumentation.

Although the album is mostly composed of instrumentals, it's so engaging and clever that the music speaks for itself. You won't find the drawn-out crescendos or abstruse tonal changes that have, for the last decade, dominated instrumental music. Hexadecagon is always motivated, and what keeps it interesting is the ways in which those motivations will often surprise you.
