I'm a bit confused by those who say this is slow (check out tracks 2, 3, 4, and 7!) but maybe less so by those who brand it repetitive. There's still a lot of real instrumentation there to keep it interesting, to my mind, but there you go. Also I don't think this album, or any of his other output for that matter, is really supposed to be contemplated with chin-stroking scrutiny.
Rather it is fun, original and diverse, this last being why it particularly appeals to me as my tastes are very eclectic. From the disco-style waa-waa noodling of Shrimp, through to the jazz-laden breaks of Beyond and Valley of the Sausages to the fat basslines ripping through the housy Sweet Smoke and Giffin and the distinctly British rap on Vibrate (my personal favourite) this album laughs at musical conventions whilst still sounding effortlessly integral.
I appreciate that not everything will be to everyone's tastes but the energy, ingenuity and musicality of this effort surpasses, IMHO, many of the other contenders in this (ersatz?)genre of chillout/coffee table/fusion/trip-hop/etc who sometimes seem to take themselves too seriously (Groove Armada, Faithless and Morcheeba spring to mind).
