Revered for their ineffably clean, precise playing, Tortoise - Standards couldn't help but mess with the formula slightly on their fourth album, Standards. And from the beginning of the first track it sounds like a major overhaul, with heavily over-miced drums and distorted guitars framing a pummeling groove from bassist Doug McCombs. On the second track "Eros," the phlegmatic synthesizer lines and clipped drums are more reminiscent of experimental electronica outfit Mouse on Mars than any fellow post-rock luminaries.

When the band finally hits its Tortoise - Standards , though, midway through the third track, "Benway," it's with a quintessential Tortoise groove, driven by repetitive bass figures and a vibraphone melody plus a hilarious nod to prog-rock at the end, with several seconds of stop-start playing.

Ironically, despite the range of sounds, Tortoise is still doing what they've been doing for nearly a decade: playing some of the most empathic, group-minded rock Tortoise - Standards their era, then indulging in much recomposition courtesy of the mixing desk and various effects.
