Product Description

BBC Review

Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian is album number five for Prefuse 73, aka Guillermo Scott Herren. With 28 tracks lasting a total of 48 minutes, it sounds like the future on fast forward. Picture a mixtape mash up of psychedelic hip hop with only the briefest of pauses for breath.

After three short switchback tracks, NoNo is a restful patch of crooned breathing. However, it's only 14 seconds long and over before you know it. Straight after Herren serves up an intense slice of stop start beats - appropriately titled Punish - that ends with violin wails and multi-tracked voices.

There's a scene in the 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth in which David Bowie's lost alien sits surrounded by a huge bank of televisions, all tuned to different channels. The cacophonous result isn't that dissimilar to first impressions of this album. It feels like it's necessary to focus on individual moments to get a sense of what's happening, but those moments are succeeded by so many other shard-like sounds that it can feel like a challenge to keep up. Surrender is probably the best strategy. The only alternative otherwise is flight.

The other 70s reference is Dan McPharlin's cover - a Roger Dean homage mixed with just a dash of Studio Ghibli. The otherworldliness of the image further underlines the sense of a world gone mad from sensory overload.

It wouldn't be a Prefuse 73 album without some lovely beats under the ever-changing soundscapes: the fleeting Get Em High, the clockwork skronk of No Lights Still Rock and the stoned Regato are high points. Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian may be a challenge, but it's one well worth facing. --Colin Buttimer

1.0 out of 5 stars The end of the road 9 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
Its over, its been about 3 releases in a row that have been progressively worse, all the sounds are the same, nothing new, this time with about 25 tracks out of 28 being about 60 seconds long which hides about 4 or so tracks that have any substance.

Not quite sure where Prefuse is going, but certainly not going to buy any more. If you have heard good things about Prefuse 73, then get (in the following order...)
Vocal Studies
One Word Extinguisher
Surrounded by Silence

Leave the rest. I am a great believer in "killing your idols", whereby you buy an LP blind because of the artist on the front. This has been a classic case of this with me, so Prefuse is added to the list.

One star for the cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ampexian 2 Mar 2010
By Faux
Format:Audio CD
For the complete listening experience, I will return to this record more often than his last two full-lengths, but I think he still has some room to grow and it is for this reason that currently a Four Tet or Towers of Asia record is a great deal more satisfying.

Apart from 'Sleep Method Suite' I think I have everything he has ever released under his many names/projects and Herren's music has been the backdrop to the last 10 years of my life. Its such a shame but I agree with the previous reviewers in that this is a poor offering which should really have been edited down to a EP length CD. As with many of his releases it gets more interesting further into the CD you go, in this case starting with the beautiful 'Simple Loop Choir' but just as I thought it was turning the corner it ended! Perhaps he is just fulfilling contractual obligations to Warp and has better stuff waiting for release on his own or another label. I live in hope, and if you check out Vocal Studies (Prefuse 73), Rolls and Waves(Savath and Savalas), The Singles Collection 03-05 (Piano Overlord), Agony Pt1 (Delarosa & Asora) you will understand why these reviews are like they are! Update December 2012 - Just had to add that after re listening several times recently I've revised my rating and have realised I didn't give it long enough, this really does grow on you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless 22 Oct 2009
By Capster
Format:Audio CD
I can only agree with the first reviewer. The last three releases can probably be best summed up as 'pointless' ... and yes, this release is pointless.

'Vocal Studies & Uprock Narrative' and 'One Word Extinguisher' were great, 'Surrounded by Silence' was nice, but things really started going down hill after 'Security Screenings'.

I am not sure why albums are released under Prefuse 73. Does anyone really think that we want to pay money for this? It's not even a question of taste, more one of whether any effort went into making this at all. It's more like a collection of 'bits' that weren't going anywhere musically, and then bunched together to make this album.

Saying that, it's probably not as bad as 'Security Screenings' but enough is enough. Big let down and a bit of an insult to paying fans. Next time make an album that people will actually want to listen to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overly savaged 16 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
First things first, I'm not commenting on this because I particularly like it, but instead because it's current average rating of two stars is too damning.

Amazing how everyone is jumping off the Prefuse 73 bandwagon, and onto the Flying Lotus bandwagon for example, and yet I can listen to either of them at the moment and think they are OK; no better or worse.

Yet having said that I do agree with the criticisms; this is not a patch on "One Word Extinguisher" by the same artist, and the album cover IS probably the best thing about it!

Pretty average album: but still worth three stars.
