I do admit that a few on the tracks are quite repetitive and yes, the advert thing-I know. But don't let a hint of commercialism spoil your enjoyment of Mr McCarthy's music. All in all the album is definately worth owning. It's an uplifting mix of funky beats and happy sounds in true Scruff style.
Not heard any Scruff before? I recommend having a listen to a friends first. My flatmate hates this album, but then he likes commercial 'house' ; ) (miaoow) It does make me wonder though, without meaning to quote the Unreal album too much; "Do you hear what I hear?" You'll love or hate this album, have you got the ears for it?
By the way-if you are already a Mr Scruff fan and haven't seen him live yet-sort it out man, his sets are amazing. Laters : )
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).
