This album—TNT—is one of the greatest musical experiences out there. By the end of Ten-Day Interval, I feel like I've escaped reality, and from that point on the album leads me from place to place on a beautiful, hypnotic journey that doesn't let up until the last notes fade out on Everglade.

If you have the patience to learn the ins and outs of this album, you will be rewarded with a magical experience unlike any other.

There are too many things to say about Tortoise.
I love their music, the style of production, etc.
One of the most interesting bands alive.

With their rich combination of Steve Reich-style minimilism, dub, electronic music, funk, progressive Canterbury-style jazz-rock and rhythmic experimentation, Tortoise have invented a music that is closer to classical and jazz than rock.
