[3:30] takes its inspiration from that cornerstone of pop music - the three to three and half minute pop song. In his own words Jeff decided to approach this album 'as an exercise in reduction - the process of packing a maximum amount of musical information into every moment/sound/phrase'.

The ferocious and reductionist production angle results in a set of tracks that pull you in and spit you out just as quickly, which in a climate of endless epic track lengths simply adds to the sense of excitement.

This is not a mawkish, sentimental piece of work and it will appeal to anyone who doesn't mind breaking some nails while hanging onto the edges of an electrifying audio vista. It's a bracing, fizzing and explosive listen which excitedly packs what might have been an hours worth of ideas into its near 22 minutes.
