The question here is simple - if you are looking at reviews it is because you want to know whether you should buy it or not. The answer is easy as well: Get it. It's worth it
Hate to admit that I'm one of those just a little baffled by the wondrous reviews this disc has received.

After being so heavily hyped, I had expected something more mind-blowing. But on the second listening, that's when the mind-blowing occurred. Loop-based music is incredibly easy to make, but is incredibly difficult to do well. But Axel Willner, the man behind The Field, has hit on a stunningly gorgeous method: his stuttering loops create almost a trance-like feel to the track such that the variations, when they come, pound into your consciousness, recreating the track anew.
