3.0 out of 5 stars No companion piece, just jetsom 5 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I will relisten to this EP in light of the previous review, but my first few listens haven't yielded even a fraction of my counterpart reviewer's satisfaction. Yes it's 'rave', but for me it smacks of recording bin doodlings than returning to one's roots.

Among Squarepusher's earlier efforts (Vic Acid EP for instance) there were some seriously pounding tracks that really ran with the idea of pushing the 'dance' music envelope. Often these sat comfortably beside Jenkinson's more fusion-jazz muso meditations (equally brilliant). To me, these and 'rave by numbers' (forgive the pun) workouts undo all that good work for what seems like an exercise in nostalgia.

The recent album, Just a Souvenir, offers a concise summary of what Squarepusher does, and it's well presented. No surprises but no turds either. Just a set of tight, electro-jazzrock pieces at a reasonable price. Not a lot in common with these six tracks, but I'd suggest you try there before you come here. That is, unless you're tempted by the previous review.

I dunno, maybe I'm way off the mark, but having been treated to so many innovative moments by the 'Pusher I start to get impatient when I sense water being trodden. You may feel differently; I hope so.

5.0 out of 5 stars I remember rave 20 Jan 2009
By Colin Mccartney TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Firstly Amazon's product description is inaccurate in my view - this EP has a completely different feel from Tom Jenkinson's last LP and therefore CANNOT be considered a "companion piece". Granted the artwork is virtually identical, but the similarity ends there. Jazz-tastic, goatee-stroking concept piece this ain't.

This is R.A.V.E.!

This reminds me of the type of gem the Nu Groove label used to release on a fortnightly basis back in the early 1990s. Familiar yet dangerous-sounding, Squarepusher mixes the melodic with the challenging and goes back to his pure electronic roots. The vibe is Luke Vibert, Aphex Twin, Joey Beltram, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Goldie, Carl Craig - without any hint of derivativeness. He pays homage to, rather than rips off these artists and on the last track - the wonderfully-named "Illegal Dustbin" - he samples the granddaddies of them all - Underground Resistance ("Live in Utrecht" if I'm not mistaken?)

Warp Records are off to a flyer in 2009. This may very well turn out to be single of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best work he's done in a while, but... 27 Feb 2010
By M. Gensler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was no doubt created because his album "Just a Soveneir" had way too much bass/guitar in it. This is great though. Fans of "Hello Meow" will love these happy little synth songs.
