There are two things you should know before buying this album.
Firstly, this is not an electronic album. I'm sure a lot of people will know Squarepusher as a Warp IDM arist often compared to Aphex Twin - that's not what we have here. If you're after more standard drum'n'bass, head for Hard Normal Daddy or Feed Me Weird Things. If you want slightly more mangled up drilly breaks, try out Go Plastic or Do You Know Squarepusher? This album could be loosly described as fusion jazz, with freeform jazz drums, guitar, double bass and electric piano all over the place, mixed in with some particularly odd squelchy synths.
Secondly, this record requires close listening. I had downloaded a few short samples of the album, so knew what to expect, yet I was ultimately disappointed on first listen. It seemed to ramble on without going anywhere. And it's true that a number of tracks have a very similar sound to them. But after a few close listens, particularly concentrating on the music, I discovered it was as great as I was expecting, and even better!
So if slightly messed up fusion jazz with the odd electronic moment sounds good for you, I couldn't recommend this album enough.

This album is the one that you WILL annoy the neighbours with - unless they are enlightened enough to have twisted avant-garde jazz, undanceable drum and bass tastes.
Precise bass and hectic but eclectic drums mix with guitars, and keyboards pushing in and falling out from the collages of sound that can only have been produced by a man on a mission to ignore as many of the rules as possible.
Warning! This is jazz that not trad., and drum and bass that will dislocate limbs if you try to dance to it...

Let me get this straight - this is no way in the same league as 'Hard Normal Daddy' or 'Feed Me Weird Things'. This album is entirely different, and, for the most part, not actually very good

There are 2 main things wrong with this album.

1. The lack of any long tracks. The longest track on here is however the best one, 'My Sound', but still short-ish at only a shade over 6 minutes

2. There are far too many short tracks which sound exactly the same

So, when it comes down to it, there is one gem in a confused, repetitive and sometimes very bland album which, at most, would make slightly interesting background music at a particularly dull houseparty. 'Music is Rotted One Note' is only lifted by the wonderful, yet simplistic My Sound, one of my favourite Squarepusher tracks which is the only reason why I don't rate this album worse

I was initialy surprised by the upbeat funkiness of the first track. This is not the work of a Warp records artist, I thought to myself. Then the second track came on, and as the discordant electric piano began to ride the shimmering drums (which all sound like they were recorded in a dingy bathroom) and the popping bass runs came tumbling out of the speakers, I thought I was listening to some long lost captain beefheart instrumental, where they ditched their usual swamp-blues and looked to miles davies for inspiration. Abstract is probably the best word to describe this album, which is a totally original piece of work. Not for the faint-hearted, but ultimately rewarding.

I absolutely love some of Squarepusher's stuff,particularly his first album Feed Me Weird Things and his masterpiece Go Plastic,but I find this album his least enjoyable to listen to.Don't get me wrong,you don't listen to Warp/Rephlex/etc stuff for easy listening (if anything you WANT to be shocked by someone like Aphex Twin),but I simply don't "get" Music Is Rotted One Note,although maybe the clues in the title..
