A restless, conceptual cut-and-paste experimentalism drives the electronica outfit Matmos, and nowhere in the group's discography is this more apparent than on 2006's THE ROSE HAS TEETH IN THE MOUTH OF A BEAST. A sprawling sonic collage that celebrates well-known gay and lesbian figures (Larry Levan, Valerie Solanas, and William Burroughs, among them), ROSE is a fractured, elliptical journey that explores history and sexual identity while falling somewhere between IDM and avant-garde performance art. Guest appearances from Maja Ratkje, Bjork, and Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons) add heft to this already complex and alluring effort.

[With] elegant thrashing and neatly sequenced clicking....This is a remarkably rich and complex achievement. - The Wire
