Product Description

When Danny DeVito commissioned Irish producer David Holmes to provide the score for the film Out of Sight, he chose wisely. Holmes's gritty, urban dance music, first exposed on the sadly underrated The Film's Crap Let's Slash the Seats, is perfect for evoking scenes and atmospheres, yet it's interesting enough to stand on its own. For this album, Holmes and a friend wandered the streets of New York, collecting voices and noises; Holmes then assembled them into an imaginary soundtrack with the structures of modern dance music and the sonic qualities of rock and dub reggae. Let's Get Killed is a disjointed cut-up session that brings the grit and excitement of city life into your living room without leaving a drop of blood. --Matthew Corwine

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. Work of genius. 29 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Why is David Holmes so relativly unknown, even after producing work of this jaw dropping quality, when his emulators, such as Fat Boy Slim get so huge? This album just makes old Norm seem so...crass. Subtle, delicate, groovy and oh-so-cool, this album is a film, it's a huge hollywood blocbuster without pictures. It feels not like a collection of seperate tracks, but a continual narrative. An album in the truest sense of the word. I came across Holmes by accident and now just want everything he's ever done.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELECTRONIC HENDRIX 17 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album for years and always go back for more. Constantly surprising, endlessly inventive, funky, funny and menacing all at once - reminds me of Hendrix in that way, if he'd had a synth, laptop and been born 30 yrs later. An under-appreciated classic - you'll wonder how you've gone so long without it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, mate 16 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is brilliant, plain and simple. A real mix of styles - some are plain funky (my mate paul), some are heartachingly beautiful (don't die just yet) and some make you want to laugh out loud with exhilaration (headrush on lafayette). All mashed together over a backdrop of the sounds of new york. Buy this.
And also buy his essential mix LP (it's on amazon, but not as david holmes. It's the essential mix 1998 one, I think, by various artists. The one that starts with contact by brigette bardot, anyway. That's even better than this)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Big Apple through the night 6 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's strange that on this, which is without doubt the best album I've ever heard, there is not a single track that would feature in my top 100.

But this is not a collection of songs - this is an album. As another reviewer has said, it feels like a trippy trip through the city at night, meeting colourful characters on the way. Some parts are funny, some dark. At the end you feel as if you emerge into a city morning, happy for it, the city goes back to sleep as the people take over, and life goes on.

Whatever you do, don't listen to any track in isolation, as the album works only as a whole, and, as I've said, it's probably one of the best albums ever made.

Can't recommend it enough to open-minded people who like their music strange and deep.
