5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 6 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
A great package and introduction to Four Tet. The DVD contains one of the best music video's I have ever seen 'As Serious as Your Life'. All I can say is that Morris dancing has credability for the very first time.
The music is a mesh of funk, jazz, folk, electriconica, psychedelia and more, all mixed up and brought together, delivering very pleasing results. The inclusion of the DVD is a nice touch and I guarentee the video's will leave you feeling amused and gratified, if not a little twisted! A bargain for the price.
If you like truly accomplished musicians (in this case Kieran Hebden and friends) working at the forefront of modern music then buy this. If you like 'Boy Bands', 'Nu Metal' etc, then you should still buy this and tutor yourselves in the ways of righteousness and see what quality music is all about.

the other reviews variously have it : kind of but...
key words to describe this EP from 2003: (mostly) lovely, inventive, psychedlic, glitchy, post-club, Intelligent non-DM, laptop / electronic music for all the creatives/open minded out there. track 2 - the Icarus remix gets speical mention here also for roughing up Hebden's sound + giving it a post -jungle nippon vocal overdub rework. excellent.

i also highly recommend four tet's Remixes lp/cd also - but this EP is more uniform in quality i feel.. and yes the dvd is a bonus also.

head + heart music. recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 24 Feb 2008
By AMB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this EP having enjoyed some excellent Four Tet tracks from other people's collections. I was after their rich, interesting, moving sound, but I did not find it here. The tracks range from empty to annoying. The first track comes closest to being enjoyable, with a pleasant smoothing progression of sampled melodies in the background, but it is tramped on by a needless, harsh, overriding percussion beat that completely kills it for me.

Sadly, the videos on the accompaning disc do not save this edition. Two are vaguely entertaining, but poorly executed, and the other two are gross, one to the point of my wishing I hadn't bothered watching it.

Overall, a rather shallow and at times irratating listening (and viewing) experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars great value 5 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Four the price, this is a fantastic package.
Four people unfamiliar with four tet, this will serve as a fantastc introduction to some sublime music.
Four those who already own Rounds, the accompanying DVD gives the singles an excuse to be played, and the videos vary hugely in style, meaning that you will want to watch them more than once.
Four stars, sorry, seems to be in keeping with the review

4.0 out of 5 stars Four Tet - My Angel Rocks Back And Forth 10 Mar 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of Four Tet's best tracks off ROUNDS gets the remix treatment on this single. The original MY ANGEL ROCKS BACK AND FORTH is all delicacy and thudding bass, a study in contrasts. Icarus, however, makes the track even more abstract, trading some of the aching moodiness of the original for sliced up Chinese-vocal samples and drum 'n' bass beats. Isambard Khroustaliov's blend of "First Thing/Chia" takes the abstraction even further. But the tonal, ambient "I've Got Viking in Me" brings things back down to earth... sort of. "All the Chimers" is a music box thrown into a vacuum and slowly winding down. This single definitely rocks back and forth!
4.0 out of 5 stars 5 for the title track, 3 for the rest... 5 May 2009

Like my title says, the original track is amazing, but the other tracks on the disk didn't wow me. This was a little disappointing since I like so much of Four Tet's work. Nonetheless, if you want to give the crowd something different and bring it down for a minute, this is the track!

2.0 out of 5 stars not happening 30 Dec 2004
By Gravity James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was disappointed with this album. YOu get all of the four tet videos but they are pretty bland and boring. "She moves she" is pretty funny, and the best on the dvd.

The cd is not that good at all. The single for "my angel rocks back and forth" is nice, but the remix and other tracks are so-so.

Four tet should have waited to do the cd/dvd thing that everyone else is doing, this is a waste of money. 2 stars-1 for the single, and 1 for the "ok" video. get pause and rounds.

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a look. 27 Oct 2004
By Rebecca Siegmund - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
pause and rounds are some of my favorite albums as of recently. so maybe i had high hopes for this cd, even if it was pretty much remixes and repeated songs...

cd 1 with the music.. i'd give it a C+. my angel rocks back and forth is a beautiful hypnotic song; cant go wrong with that. the other remixes that follow are not so hot...they are intersting to listen to at first, but carry on too long and get rather annoying after the first two minutes.

cd 2 with the music videos... a B-. the video for my angel rocks back and forth has some strange, intriguing footage, and the way they present it is unusual, but overall it gave me the feeling of an art student trying a little too hard to make a "deep insightful disturbing yet quirky" film, where the computer generated parts and the real video parts didnt quite mesh and felt.. i dont know, a litttle belabored.

the video for she moves me suits the song, but didnt hold my interest very long. very abstract and repetative, but not awful..just not my personal taste.

as serious as your life was HILARIOUS. this dvd was worth it just for this movie! really funny, not at all pretentious, just europeans in traditional costumes dancing to four tet's trippy beats. great stuff.

no more mosqutoes is a little freaky, a little retarted, and..i hate to say it again, but a little pretentious, too.

overall... probably not worth spending 13 dollars on, but worth watching/listening if you can borrow it from someone else.
