5.0 out of 5 stars NOT just "another squarepusher album"..., 10 Nov 2008
This review is from: Just A Souvenir (Audio CD)
It would be (and is) a huge mistake to state that this album is "just another squarepusher album". I can't really imagine a less appropriate description. It would be infinitely more appropriate to describe it as a timely evolution and consolidation of his own sound. I can't think of an album which TJ has released which actually resonates the Squarepusher sound more prolifically. This, I think, is a very good thing.

I have been a fan of SP since Feed Me Weird Things and I can see the transmutation which has occurred. This guy IS talented and IS destined for bigger (but not necessarily better) things. It's weird that the first guy to review this album would mention the mercury music awards and such things... I don't know why that this is in any way important. The fact is that this album takes all previous SP albums and builds upon them with aplomb and does not need corporate endorsement at all.

If you own any (or all) SP albums then this is an album you should buy as a matter of course, regardless of any ill informed cynics. It's a genuine addition to his musical genesis and not an exercise in banality which has been suggested elsewhere.

Buy and be happy.
