C vs J... where to begin? I'll try my hardest not to become to personally biased with this artist as difficult as it may be. The first time I heard Whole Numbers I thought I finally found the answer. The answer to the perfect formula of abstract trip hop, ambience, intel, and signature by one single artist. I had no idea what was in store for me with his following and past releases, I could only compare it to a tech finding the end of the internet, a diver discovering the white whale or perhaps a ghost being put to rest in peace. It's not just this album in particular but all his works that deserve applause, but only should be heard by a public consisting of substance and is appreciative of musical detail and it's design. I can't help but think of the Never Ending Story in the book store, yeah I was once that little kid, thought I had read everything. Obviously you've been either told or stumbled across this album and by reading this please don't look at this as a reveiw or recommendation, look at this as a bloody demand...BUY THIS ALBUM! In close every style of music potentially has a time and place, Casino versus Japan is in a place of his own, Milwaukee (jokes, kind of). Now that wasn't very personal was it?
