On Oneohtrix Point Never's most eerily affecting album so far, not only have the machines learned to think, they've learned to feel. There's a yearning beauty in the way OPN mainman Daniel Lopatin sets his cybernetic sequencers dancing gracefully around solemn church organ, and a deep melancholy in the disembodied vocal samples voices floating amidst programmed rhythm tracks. When the robots take over, this is what they'll be listening to when their emotion apps needs an update.
