12 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Demob Happy on 18 April 2010
Format: Audio CD
At some point over the last decade David Holmes' brand of retro mishmashery seemed to fade from the zeitgeist despite the fact that the Northern Irish producer was reaching a wider audience (and no doubt keeping his bank manager happy) with soundtrack work. His turn to the movie business, principally for Steven Soderbergh, found an appropriate outlet for a producer whose jazzy, hipster vibes have always had a cinematic quality.

I found myself returning recently to that 1997 pre-millennial fave `Let's Get Killed' and finding that it still works very well. At the time, Holmes seemed a jollier, less cerebral UK alternative to DJ Shadow's murky vinyl esoteria, minus the state-of-the-hip hop-nation polemic. Both artists wore their record collector hearts on their sleeves, digging deep into the crate for rare grooves and forgotten pyschedelia with which to blend and splice impressionistically. Arguably (for this won't be a popular statement) 'Let's Get Killed' has dated less. Bar the James Bond tomfoolery, the album compares favourably to the prog excesses and more ponderous moments of `Entroducing', still cited as a great album of that decade (it is, of course).

Holmes was always more interested in cinema than hip hop, though, epitomised by the title of his debut "This Film's Crap, Let's Slash the Seats!" - an album much mined for its effectiveness as incidental music for television drama but somewhat dated now. Only the slow-motion farewell `Gone' from that early effort makes the grade here, David Holmes' rather premature `Best Of' compilation, `The Dogs Are Parading', and it blends in well.

However, `Let's Get Killed' is still the high point in a patchy five album career (not including the soundtrack work and compilations curated by him).

Excellent collection of Mr. Holmes finest tunes.
The bonus disc has some great remixes, some I'd never heard before. So a real treat.
If you are a fan this collection is a must.
