5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece. 1 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is truly original, ex-Nine Inch Nails man Chris Vrenna has created a melting-pot of styles that manages to sound like nothing else I've heard. Overwhelmingly mechanical and yet full of soul, the beats and squelches throughout the album remind me slightly of some of Aphex Twin's work, yet more 'kitsch' and endearing...if such a thing is possible. I read somewhere that the entire album is based around the picture on the front cover, that it captivated Vrenna at first sight and he created the album to be a soundtrack to the boy's thoughts. This and Vrenna's work with NIN resulted in me buying this album (without hearing it) shortly after it came out, and it still manages to surprise me with its sheer originality.
All the guest vocalists provide excellent vocals, 'Take me Alive' is one example and probably my favourite Tweaker track, an exercise in pure genius. The whole album is patchy on first listen as some tracks such as this are more instantly accessible than the others and they just grab you - but perseverance brings rewards, as soon enough the album melds itself into one awesome track.
It's extremely hard to describe Tweaker's music, electronica is probably a word I'd use to start with, but it encompasses so much more - Rock, Pop, Dance. Some of the more spacious parts of the tracks remind me of sections of NIN's 'The Fragile', some of the guitar work reminds me of parts of Apollo 440's 'Electro-Glide in Blue', there's some of the aforementioned Aphex in there, 'Full Cup Of Coffee' reminds me of a Radiohead track from 'Kid A'...and yet this album manages to be as good as anything from these artists, whilst still sounding totally different.
This album is like the painting it is based on - individual, strange, endearing and thoughtful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trip-goth 19 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is a well crafted ambient post-rock development from former NIN (Nine Inch Nails) member Chris Vrenna.
Containing 4 vocal tracks that rise upon from the depths of the beautiful created soundscapes and containing vocals from David Slyvian,Craig Wedren and Will Oldham.
The first single, Linoleum,is a melding of melencholic rock with darker ambient beats and can be compared to Slyvain's solo offerings.
Other tracks vary from trip-goth outings like Happy Child to the electronic lunacy of Microsize Boy.
Running close to over 60 minutes of music each song is generally 4 minutes long and contains few repetative beats.
While each individual song on this 13 track album offers a distinctive sound and beat, which adds depth and variation, there is an underlying theme that unites the album thus creating one of those rare masterpieces that allows for songs to be listened to singlely or as whole.
I would recommend this album for fans of NIN as well as more chilled ambient post rock outfits like Godspeed you black emperor!. A must buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only mildly attractive 23 Jun 2013
Format:MP3 Download
This album by Chris Vrenna, ex-Nine Inch Nails, I find rather peculiar.

Being a huge admirer of David Sylvian, I immediately like 'Linoleum', but also 'Take Me Alive' featuring Craig Wedren struck me as very, very good. The rest? While I find very little to be decidedly poor, to these ears it mostly comes off as directionless doodlings, and apart from the two tracks mentioned above, none of it really soars. It's as if the music is too bland to demand attention and too brash to be enjoyed in the background.

Approach with some caution - but if you're thinking of approaching it at all, you probably already know what to expect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Serious Pop Music 30 July 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Trod on the same derivative path as David Sylvian, this ambient techno outing by Tweaker will satisfy the most ardent Japan fan and disappoint almost anyone else. And it is those ardent Japan fans who will be happiest here. There is plenty of mood and atmosphere but no good songs. If you like this kak, listen to that high bastion of seriousness David Sylvian. I recommend the curiously dreadful Camphor. Otherwise, for people who enjoy music stay well away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! This genreless album hits you in all the right places 26 Sep 2001
By S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At first I was somewhat skeptical, while I love Vrenna's remix work and am a big Six Degrees fan, I never would have guessed on a union between that particular artist and label. But my fears were quite unfounded. Certainly not techno, certainly not industrial, certainly not ambient or worldbeat, Tweaker's really made an album with a sound uniquely it's own while building upon foundations from many genres.
While many of the songs are quite different in structure, one of the commonalities across songs is something I can only call "thickness". Each song has alot of things going on, and even the simple songs have multiple layers of sound, insturments moving in and out of the mix. Of course, this being Vrenna, the percussion (both live and programmed) throughout is wonderfully emotive, complex, and excellent. But what makes this album amazing for me is that instead of being a percussive-dominant album, the amazing rhythm work is merely one part of the collage, and the guitars, vocals, samples, and programming create a really addictive brew, somehow both challenging and hook-laden at the same time.
The songs with guest vocalists feel like the most "traditional" songs on the disc (Craig Wedren's voice is just stellar on his two tracks), and while they are all excellent, I feel it's in the insturmentals where this disc really shines. "Swamp" rocks out like a great NIN insturmental with nice crunchy guitar and drum licks, while "Turned" could be mistaken for a spaced-out Orb tune with layers of reverb and chirping birds. "Drive-Bye" would be as at home on 4AD as Six Degrees, while "Microsize Boy" is a wonderful slice of vocoder and punchy drums. And while each song might have it's own unique sound, the "thickness" of the music allows the whole album to blend amazingly well, so instead of jumping all over the map it comes off as cohesive and connected.
All in all, this one of my most pleasant surprises of the year. I was expecting a decent album to play a few times, then probably forget. Instead I found a genreless album that's guaranteed a spot in heavy rotation for quite a while. (The Beautiful packaging of the disc is an added bonus as well)

5.0 out of 5 stars phenomenal music 20 Aug 2003
By Captain Planet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
to start off, yes, christ vrenna was the drummer for NIN, and no, this cd does not sound like "the downward spiral" or "broken." it is a completely different sound. but that is probably to be expected, seeing as how when one does one's own solo project they can do whatever they please. it may not sound like NIN, but you can here a hint of influence in it. very electronic, featuring the voices of many other persons, other than himself. NIN is one of my favorite bands, and so is tweaker. i recommend that all of you buy this cd if you enjoy good music, which this most certainly is. it is always in my cd player. just check it out, you'll be happy

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid effort 16 Oct 2001
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well...being a big NIN fan i picked up Chris Vrenna's solo full length in hopes for some good music during the usual Trent Reznor four year drought. It is a good album, a little too electronic for my tastes in some parts, but it is growing on me. Definately far surpasses anything mtv plays these days. Original, organic blend of rock/electronic type stuff. Not a dissapointment at all. I'd recomend this to anyone who is in the modd for something different and atmospheric. Good music will always prevail...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut 2 April 2004
By Max - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've found myself listening to TATATU a lot recently, gearing up in anticipation for Tweaker's upcoming second album, "2 a.m. Wakeup Call". This type of music is definitely not for everyone, but for those who decide to venture in, they won't be disappointed. This album is intended to be listened to on a rainy day, when you have plenty of time to just relax, have a few cups of coffee, and possibly just stare out a window or outside a patio into the bleak overcast.
On the 4 vocal tracks, the guest appearances by David Sylvian, Will Oldham, and Craig Wedren are all exceptionally well done, and fit nicely. The lyrics sung on "Microsize Boy" are entirely mechanic and go excellent with the mood at this point of the album. After this track, the pace slows down significantly, almost as if to reflect on the previous 9 tracks, most of which all pulse with intense drum beats and synths. It picks back up again for the final two tracks, "After All" and "Come Play".
All in all, a 4/5 star performance for me, with only a few minor weak points throughout the entire album, but easily forgivable ones at that. You really need to listen for yourself to understand the concept. After hearing the first released track, "Ruby", off the second Tweaker album, there is no doubt in my mind it will go above and beyond what TATATU did. Here, Vrenna was only scratching the surface...

5.0 out of 5 stars trips my head 27 Nov 2002
By "richlatta" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This compelling little record is mostly instrumental electronic music, although Vrenna does incorporate guitars and other instruments. It is appropriately trippy, sometimes rocking out quite a bit. The songs with vocals do stand out for obvious reasons (character, good lyrical content), especially the opener "Linoleum" with ghostly vocals by David Sylvian spiked with a roaring guitar. There's a song called "Microsize Boy" which employs a vocoder that's a lot of fun. This album is great for road trips.
