Format: Audio CD
Q: What might a collaboration between Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Thomas Dolby and Richard D. James sound like?
A: This album

One of the reasons, I think, why Warp records continues to flourish when many rival electronic labels have disappeared, is because they have done exactly what a techno label should do i.e. look to the future rather than go down the repackaging/remastering/"classics" road. With releases by Battles, Bibio and now this new Hudson Mohawke LP, Warp continue to break new ground.

"Butter" is densely packed with sonic ideas and in some ways quite difficult to get to grips with. It is experimental, but its pervading vibe of happiness makes it fairly easy to get into (much easier than, say, an Autechre release). The music is very difficult to categorise but it does bear a certain resemblance, at least spiritually, to Nightmares on Wax's debut album A Word of Science (hence the title of this review). There are moments of stop-what-you're-doing genius to be found, for example on "Shower Melody" and "Rising 5". It is also quite pop in places - "Tell Me What You Want From Me" sounds as though it could have been lifted straight from Quincy Jones' Back on the Block. Additionally there are periodic references to early 90s rave - on tracks like "Black n Red".

The whole piece serves as a showcase for Hudson Mohawke's production talent and I will be surprised if there are not better known, less talented artists out there trying to hook up with him even as I write this. On the evidence of "Butter" he deserves to go on to much bigger and better things.

This album is insane!
It will grab you and shake you until you bleed glass and glitter all over your mums brand new rug!
I took a chance and purchased this album purely because of the album art, I had no expectations, I hadnt even heard of Hudson or his Mohawke before...
This guy really is from another planet. The beats are jagged, the synths are confused and the structure is almost non existant but it works and it never stops working! Im not even sure what genre of music this is but I dont care!
Take a chance and let him save you from yourself....kinda like a prehistoric digital Mother Teresa from the future.

Top three:
1.Fuse
2.Gluetooth
3.(the rest of the album)

5 stars!

This CD is unlike anything I own, really bizarre to begin with but love it now, and have got other people listening to something they wouldnt usually.

Strong, skilled and worth checking out 24 Dec. 2009
By Scott Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a stronger release than some records in its vein, and Hudson Mohawke's chops are fierce. Also HM's range here is nice without being too left-field (which is kind of funny when you think how left-field this whole genre of music is). All that said, Hm's released better tracks on EPs and such, so when I came to this full-album effort I was left wanting a little. Sure, there are a few really strong tracks on here: "3.30" is bouncy and crunchy at once, "Gluetooth" has a nice groove going and even a vocal track like "Just Decided" isn't without its charms. But nothing on here pounds like previously released track "Overnight", which appears on an earlier EP.

You can pick and choose on this one and score, but the whole album is probably best left for fans.

Hudson Mohawke - Butter 14 Sept. 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
BUTTER is an unnatural creation -- but that's mostly a compliment. It has a frenetic kitchen-sink approach, with almost a nu-rave appeal to it. He pitches his samples until they squeak with pleasure and grounds everything with a heavy beat. He hits Prince with a psychedelic stick on "Joy Fantastic" and just gets chaotic trying to maintain a melody on "Fruit Touch." The soothing "Acoustic Lady" gives way to the sitar and drums of "Rising 5." There are so many ideas crammed in here that it's surprising they don't come oozing out of the side. And maybe that's part of the problem: too little focus. The tracks bounce from one thing to another, and while that makes for a fun ride, it just sometimes gets you lost. Still, you can't help but smile at "Velvet Peel" or bob along to "FUSE." The female vocals on "Allhot" are funky and creepy, all at the same time. All good fun.

Expected much better 27 Feb. 2014
By J. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I primarily bought this album for "FUSE", but I was pleased to hear other great tracks on the album like "Gluetooth", "Joy Fantastic", "Rising 5" and "No One Could Ever". But 2 particular other tracks stood out for the not being as good..."Fruit Touch" (terrible, I could've made that) is absolutely AWFUL and Velvet Peel is bad, (would've been better without the random voice bits, still not Fruit Touch though). The rest of the album is okay, I listen to the other tracks sometimes but not as much as the 5 I named first. All in all I don't regret the purchase, but I'm really disappointed to see a track as terrible as Fruit Touch be included. I'd give Butter 3.5 stars

Yoga Fire!!! 3 Dec. 2009
By Pairadeau Mars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Best thing in music since DONUTS...It truly is a joy to feel like the only one that knows about really dope music. I still do hope that somehow people catch on if only for their own joy and sanity quite frankly. I'm embarrassed to have all these riches.
