Congrats Erdem,
the reviewer thought yours was the best piece on the album.
I don't remember exactly what he says but he
mentioned psychedelia and Dear Prudence by the Beatles in relation to it.
Helpfully he mentions that the piece was recorded in real time with fx.
 (was it? the Wire usually gets that sort of info wrong :-)

Generally he seemed not overly impressed by the album, 
even being critical of Keith Rowe.
Probably trying to be controversial, that's good as it
may create more of a buzz about the album, I wouldn't
even be surprised if they're deliberately doing that to
help promotion, as there's bound to be people writing
in to disagree.
It's certainly a big spread in a mag that normally gives
a couple of column inches to new releases.
