Brilliant album!

By far one of the most unexpected and mind-blowing listening experiences of the year. Imagine a brainfuse between Battles and classic Jarre... I guess? In any case, I dare anyone interested in "instrumental electronic post-rock" to deny the awesomeness of Pivot.

Unexpected

I actually gave this album 4.5 stars, but I rounded it up for itunes...First off, what a surprising album. I picked up a copy because the sample tracks sounded interesting, and boy was I right! Right off the bat, you're transported into a another world for 48 minutes. A good mixture of shoegaze, electronica, and math rock make this a sound scape of large proportions...There are 3 tracks in particular that stand out, "O Soundtrack My Heart, Fool In Rain, and Epsilon" If you're a fan of Battles, Maps & Atlases, Cul-De-Sac, or Talking Heads buy this album!

Best Post-Rock Album of the Year

If you are into acts such as Mogwai, Battles, or other bands that stretch the definition of rock, look no further. Warp Records has found a gem here, and it's a welcome addition to their legendary stable of electronic artists. Listening to this, I can picture the guys jamming in their basement, and having a blast doing it. Excellent synthesis of electronics and live instruments, don't miss it.
