Either you're a misunderstood genius or you have a really good thesaurus.

I wish it was either.

I like this review because it's more creative than most that I read on this site, so . When I wrote for Decoy Music I tried to imbue my reviews with an analogous whimsicality. I do, however, have a few quibbles:

-"Ambience" is misspelled.

-Despite how journalists have it, I never thought of Chavez as a math-rock outfit. Examples include Sleeping People, Pele, toe, Oxes, Ghosts & Vodka, LITE, Maps & Atlases, and certainly Don Caballero. You're right, though: this band definitely does not purvey math-rock.

-Speaking of Don, I completely disagree with your sentiment about World Class Listening Problem. Although bereft of Ian Williams' nonpareil aesthetic, the songwriting is excellent, Che sounds more energetic than ever, and the whole record feels like one fun listen.

-Unless AbPunk.net is suddenly observing British standards, all punctuation should be in quotation marks.

With that said, despite their hokey moniker I enjoy this band.

1) http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ambiance
2) the term math-rock was invented by a fan of Chavez, I was referencing that.
3) American Don is the epitome of the band, World Class is its heavier, medicated cousin.
4) Oops.
