This was the first Plaid album I bought, simply on the strength of the warp records logo on the back. It is now one of my most listened to CD's. The atmosphere created is simply unbelievable, most notably on the first track "Eyen" and on Track 9 "New Family" which is probably my favourite Plaid track. Apart from one or two dodgy tracks this album is near perfect. Wicked original beats, funky mind-melting basslines and the more you listen the more bizarre undertones and hidden chime-like noises you will notice! Buy this album a.s.a.p you will not be dissapointed.

I have only recently discovered the delights of being a Plaid listener after speculatively buying Double Figure. I am not disappointed; these boys write a mean tune and I mean tuneful.
This is "chill out" which demands repeated listening but which is listenable from the first playing.
WARP records now that's what I call an intelligent label - to have such talents as Plaid / Boards Of Canada / Aphex Twin and Squarepusher under their wing - no-one else can boast such a line-up.
As for Double Figure, well it is really a development on from Rest Proof Clockwork, and Not For Threes - check out the Tim Hutton co-written "Ti Bom" and the mournful vocalisations on "Manyme". Awesome. And so musical.
Where do you go from here though gentlemen?

Plaid don't waste any time getting into the swing of this album. Eyen is fantastic, as is Squance (released earlier on a 12" promo) and Assault On Precinct Zero. The layering of sounds on top of each other is eye opening, and the tracks remain good throughout, though maybe not so inspired. Having said that though, New Family, Zala (another from the promo) Sincetta and Manyme are all great. This is probably the best alubum I've bought this year (and I've bought a lot, from the AI compilations to prefuse 73). If you like Plaid buy it, and if you don't know then try it!

I always assumed Plaid's name was a reference to their almost unique ability to weave sound over sound culminating in an end product that is far greater than the sum of it's parts. If it's not it should be judging by their latest effort, Double Figure, which is as complex yet melodic as the duo's other two albums. The album opens with Eyen, one of their delicate slow building efforts which gradually builds to a trademark, beautiful crescendo. As with all Plaid's best stuff, they are in no hurry to reach the climax of the song and it is all the better for it. It's Electronica with Classical music sensibilities, at the risk of sounding pretentious, but it's a formula that Plaid do more accessably than contemporaries like Muziq and Autechre because they never lose sight of a decent tune in favour of being 'experimental'. Track 2, Squance, is Plaid showing off the opposite end of their myriad of talents with nice clean breakbeats and a nasty funk bassline that Rza or DJ Premier would be proud of. A combination of obscure samples and synth stabs swarm over the track building up to another killer climax. It's the kind of track that makes you drive aggressively and it's as good as any of their hip-hop influenced stuff. I didn't instantly recognise anything on Double figure with the sense of fun of Myopia from Not For Threes. Nor is there anything as twisted but instantly likeable as Dang Spot from Rest Proof Clockwork but the album is definitely a grower like all Plaid's releases and if I reviewed it in a few weeks time I'd probably be able to highlight more of it's outstanding tunes. If this album was by anyone else it would get 6 out of 5 stars because, in my humble opinion, Plaid make the best albums in the world ever. But, as it's Plaid I've given it 4 because they've set themselves such high standards and I'd hate them to rest on their laurels.

Funny how true music stays with you (as Lester Bangs said in the underrated Cameron Crowe film, "Almost Famous"). I've bought "Rest Proof Clockwork" and "Trainer", and when I hear "Double Figure", there's a lot more to it than meats the..."hear". True beauty lies here for anyone who has the time to listen.
