Scintilli begins with no beats at all, instead there's ululating wordless vocals over pointillistic keyboards, and next comes a classic Plaid production from the mold. It's only as the album unfolds that further tracks, like the highlight "Unbank," tend more toward a refreshing blend of IDM and film scores.
Plaid - Scintilli The wealth of fresh new artists coming into the electronic music scene tends to get all the attention these days, but there's just as much to talk about with older artists and the way that they mature. Since the "reverse trilogy" of Not For Threes, Rest Proof Clockwork and Double Figure, general consensus has been that Plaid haven't really been on the same form. Scintilli isn't a particularly adventurous album (although there are certainly moments). Eye Robot" is a particular example, with its crawling, distorted breaks. It's pulled off pretty solidly, but it doesn't seem to have much point when there are plenty of other (and better) examples around.
This album has an average beat per minute of 127 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 62/174 BPM). See its BPM profile at the bottom of the page.
