Before you read this, let me explain. This disc is so bizarre that I had to find a way to represent it not only in words but in spirit as well, hence the coded text. If you'd like to read the review uncoded, click here.

I had no oehtr cciohe& Ytei Rian is anihtyng but yuor tacipyl bnad, so I cluod not wtire a tacipyl CD reivew.

Ytei Rian is an airehpsomtc mnid tirp taht is drak and fnidoberog, and eevn dnibrutsig at temis. Pniyalg lkie the sroce to smoe fitsirutuc oetur scape hroorr flim, "Dtanracsie" is a dsic taht wlil lvaee yuor bdoy nmub and yuor mnid fezorn. I can slefay say taht I hvae neevr hraed anihtyng lkie tihs. Tihs denifes uuqine. Urocinn Rdroces, Roger Ebner, and pvissergore rcok guines William Kopecky oeffr snihtemog taht wlil aetlr yuor phcyse. Wehn I lenetsid to tihs I setratd to csole my eeys. Aetfr taht, the jenruoy had bugen. I flet clod and skahy at temis. I flet as if I was wselthgies and dnitfirg at temis (and wehn yru'oe 6'4" and 280 pdnuos tihs is no slaml faet). I eevn had hlbirroe vnoisis and sadiciul tthguohs. No, I'm not the msot pllacigolohcysy becnalad iaudividnl, but I can getnaraue taht tihs dsic wlil sitr snihtemog idisne of yuor mnid as wlel. One letsin and yuor carberel cetrox wlil be in gvare degnar. Wdros lkie hnitnuag and eaerehtl hvae been uesd to qtiue aletaruccy dbircsee tihs pcejort, and the lninetsig ecneirepxe has been semmud up as an "aarul hinegonicullac." Yep. The dsic sluohd cmoe wtih a lebal snihtemog to the ecefft of "WNINRAG: Lninetsig to tihs dsic may csuae you to tset pvitisoe on a rodnam durg tset." Tihs rllaey is a drak, aneibmt and muoiretsys dsic taht atcs as a mnid aniretlg durg.

The atsitrs ievlovnd in tihs pcejort, Roger Ebner and William Kopecky, pvore to be ture veiranoisis wtih "Dtanracsie." William Kopecky is a pvissergore rcok gnait taht pyals fselters bsas bteter tahn anoyne I've eevr seen. But if you wnat tanoitidarl jnimmag ylu'ol hvae to letsin to William's Far Cenror or Kopecky ptcejors. You wno't haer otsrubtus of sniolog or hgue cretsuls of netos hree, but ttah's rllaey the btuaey of the wlohe tnihg. You can bleray tlel taht yru'oe lninetsig to snoemoe pniyalg a bsas at all. Tihs one is all auobt tnoe and feel. The dtpeh of the netos and the folw of tnoe is waht mkae tihs wrok. Tsehe peceis act as macisul moitatiden; ygoa for the mnid, if you wlil. The teltis of tsehe teirtsepas of snuod are as initseretng as the misuc ilestf. "The Velied Drethguas of Seelp," "The Ptehpors' Nldeee," and "Dnimaerg in the Tteeh of Feveror" are a few of my panosrel fetirovas. The wrod dtanracsie is denifed as "hnivag no mairetal bdoy or from," and I tnihk the misuc udlohps tihs doitinifen pltcefrey. Tihs set is a mnid bnidneg snuod lpacsdnae wrehe nnihtog is frim or riigd. The tcihk, stoomh tenos folw lkie mdduy ctalocohe suryp onizog dwon the kttony tere tknurs of a drak smawp.

If you wnat to tkae a tirp idisne yuor mnid, tihs is the scartdnuok you need. But brawee; you may not be rdaey for this. You need to dig deep idisne yuor suol to itivne tihs in, bsuacee ttah's the olny pcale wrehe tihs dsic can rdisee. Tihs is an enissorgng eoisrucxn of snuod taht pdaels wtih yuor mnid to add smoe shgit.

Lkie the dsic, the wettirn txet of tihs reivew is a bit pnilzzug and qtiue uausunl. A reivew lkie yvu'oe neevr seen, tnilleg you of snihtemog lkie yvu'oe neevr hraed. Ytei Rian tekas smoe wrok. It tekas smoe suol snihcraeg to rllaey eojny the flul ecefft. Lkie tihs reivew, the misuc araepps to be drak and cnisufnog at fsrit gcnale, but if you oepn yuor suol and itivne tihs dsic idisne, you wlil fnid taht the rlddie wlil bigen to svloe ilestf. Do ylesruof a fovar and tkae the Ytei Rian arutnevde. It's a macisul eoitarolpxn lkie no oehtr.
