5.0 out of 5 stars I Am A Teacher....Of The Drum 22 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
From the moment 'Best Foot Forward' introduces Shadow (aka San Fransisco born Josh Davis) as "just your favourite DJ saviour", you know it's going to be a rollercoaster ride. From the chilled out bliss of 'What Does Your Soul Look Like?' to the frantic beats of 'Stem', this is the sound of modern music being re-invented. It's not just his exquisite choice of samples, it's the revlutionary way he uses them to create completely new pieces of music. The standout track for me (and many others) has always been 'Midnight In A Perfect World', with its delicious female vocal draped over that fantastic hook which makes you weak at the knees every time you hear it. All that and a pounding beat added to the fray make it an absolutely killer tune. But having said that all the tracks on this album have a remarkably polished quality about them, even the slightly rawer 'Napalm Death', and Shadow has somehow managed to capture a spectrum of different moods and make them work on one album. There is no easy way to sum up this album, all I can do is plead that if you don't have it, you must buy it. It is the defining album of its kind for the nineties, and I believe it will in later years come to be regarded as one of the classics of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronic Excellence 11 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I always find it strange when people talk about their favourite track on this album. The whole "experience" is what makes this album so good. There is not one stand out track: the whole thing plays like one continuous stand out track! The onslaught of almost maddening beats give way to sudden passages of tranquility that use each other to great effect through the contrast they produce. Playing like a modern day classical piece this is diverse and dark. Also like the best music it rewards repeated (even continuous) listening!

By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Widely acknowledged as a genuine landmark on its original release in 1996 DJ Shadows Endtroducing is given the trendy re-mastering treatment. If ever an album deserved it though it's this one, an album that provided a discernible link between hip hop and more tasteful and critically rarefied genres like classical and ambient.
The tracks were built utilising samples , possibly from many of the vinyl treasures stretching to some distant vanishing point on the albums cover, and take in a head bending array of music- funk, soul, ,jazz even rock - as well as the aforementioned ambient. It also takes in narrated samples from all over the place, movies, TV etc and provides some cognitive interest and strange empirical resonance.
It's a painstaking work of awesome ambition and listened to now it sounds even more groundbreaking , the loops and breaks dropped in and arranged with a sense of instinctive genius.It,s difficult to dissect and categorise and evaluate individual tracks but "What Does Your Soul Look Like" has an elegiac quality that puts it in the same bracket of some of Ennio Morricones and Michael Nymans finest work while "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt " is as beguilingly weird and wonderful as it's title suggests.
The second extra disc feature alternative mixes, half realised takes on songs that are sometimes drum loops minus overdubs and hollow demos that don't really add much to the original for the most part unless you are a real muso type desperate for a window into a musicians creative process. Some of the mixes are good though. "Stem "is intercut with the legendary De Niro/ Pacino encounter from "Heat" while versions of tracks by Peshay, Cut Chemist and Quannum are all worth investigating. There is also a twelve minute live section from a 1997 show in Oxford.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immerse yourself in the darkness of DJ Shadow. 7 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
What more can I say about this epoch making album that hasn't been said already?Entroducing,for me is perhaps the greatest beat constructed audio journey ever committed to vinyl and cd.Dj Shadow has beautifully composed a mesmerising album of pure uncut bliss that awakens and reinvigorates the soul.Lush strings and spine tingling spaced out samples and sounds are fused like a match made in heaven with Shadow's penchant for sampling the deepest of drum patterns and heaviest of drum soaked breaks.Unlike many of his other contempories,Dj Shadow is more than simply a Dj,he's a musical genius and beat innovator and treats the sampler like a real instrument and has made sampling an art form.One could say that Dj Shadow is the Beethoven of sampling,ie,always challenging the boundaries of musical creativity and taking his form of music beyond the next level.I urge all discerning lovers of music to introduce themselves to Entroducing,your life will be enriched for it.

Some of the reviews on here pretty much echo what I thought when I first heard this record. It is a timeless album, it is a classic (despite it being sample based music) and whatever you listen to, it demands to be in your collection. There is a fine mix of funk (James Brown), chillout (prog rock samples!) and the best track of the lot, "The Number Song", featuring an utterly superb sample of "Orion" from Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" album. Thankfully, DJ Shadow retains his humility and refuses to spout pretentious "big-ups" to people he doesn't really like, and use stupid colloquial terms like "bangin' tune". That is the sort of guff that puts a lot of people off taking this music seriously. Seriously, even if you don't usually listen to this sort of music, do a System Of A Down and "Steal This Album", because it is a refreshing reminder that original and challenging (without being self-indulgent) musicians do exist.
