With current form like this long player, one could expect Tony Thomas to have a history of ram raiding, smash and grab tactics and other such trappings of brutality.
What the music lacks in subtlety oor chill, it makes up for in it's shear weight - massive rolling beats, flutey dubs, sultry filtered sax, synthed up beeps and bass deeper than the marianas trench.
Make no mistake, if you like it deep and dubby, this stuff is not only right up your street, its probably already in your house and emptying the contents of your fridge as we speak.
Soma fans and choochoos amongst you will no doubt spot "cannibals", used on the latest slam session (fabric 09). The feel that Tony Thomas brings to the party is equally dark and sinister, with that intense techy feel that the slam boys have nurtured in our souls over the years.
With one classic after another, listeners will soon notice the complete absence of filler in this modern day masterpiece - quality from the first beat to the very last.
At risk of appearing extremely biased i suggest that this is up for best album release of the year so far. At any rate, it's high time soma records were referred to the monopolies commission for trapping all the best talent in the world today, sticking it down on cd/vinyl and having it injected directly into our cerebral cortex. All this in the name of enjoyment - it really is all too easy.
If this doesn't rock your boat, it's high time you got off... and just like those mental soma boys tell us: Never get off the boat!
Unless your past it - buy this now.
