My favorite performance of one of Mozart's most inspired works. Utterly sublime!
The K575 or 590?

Hmm… Tough question. I like some of it. Having listened to a a TON of electronic music during the past 18 months or so, I'm not sure if this album registers as one of the more memorable albums for me personally from the offerings I've heard from this still young decade alone. That being said, this might very well be a disc that takes time and several listens to grow on you. To share my thoughts on a couple of this year's albums that are in the ambient vein as some point of reference, Boards of Canada's "Tomorrow's Harvest" for example I did not like at all. There are some small good moments on it for me, but after half a dozen listens I simply can't say I think it's a good album. Critics and fans seem to love it, but I can only wonder if there's something I'm missing. VERY few times in my life have I felt genuinely bad for spending money on a CD, but "Tomorrow's Harvest" is one of those rare cases for me. Tim Hecker's "Virgins" on the other hand I think is an absolutely amazing album. It is exactly the kind of thing I was expecting from "Tomorrow's Harvest" based on the rave reviews people have been giving it. "Virgins" is such a rich, deep and immersive experience I can only be happy to have heard it. I think I should also mention that all three albums are the first ones I've heard from their respective artists, having no prior experience with their output whatsoever. Hopkins and Hecker I have never even heard of before their new albums generated some buzz this year.
But yeah, "Immunity" might grow on me. I do like it at least to some extent and would call it a good album, possibly even very good. I'm simply not sure if I'd call it "great", and I'm pretty sure I will never call it "awesome" unless it really radically grows on me over the years. I do still hold some small hope for "Tomorrow's Harvest" but I think I'm going the explore the group's other output before coming back to it.
Edit: Giving it a third listen now. Liking it a lot more than on the previous two listens. The third time is usually the magic moment for me, if there is one to be had. I'm pretty sure "Open Eye Signal" is my favorite track on the album.

Just got these from the iTunes Store. I really like both.
Sea Hive - Lunar Grain
Now listening to this. You can stream the 47-minute album in its entirety on Bandcamp, and it'll only set you back five bucks if you wish to purchase it.
Edit: OMG, I'm only halfway into the album, and I must say I LOVE this album already. Absolutely incredible.
