Spot the sample game! So many breaks from this album ended up on the best of the golden age of hip hop but it's way better than that - in my opinion these songs stack up with the best James Brown has to offer. All funk no filler, your head nods from start to finish and for the heads a bonus break mix from Funky Drummer. Worth it.

If you know Dan Sartain's previous stuff then this is like an album full of PCB'98 which is a good thing. If you don't go back that far then think the Ramones but without the Republican politics. Ultimately, great shot in the arm punk rock n roll but it's all over in 20 minutes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 28 Oct. 2012

This is a bit of an amateur effort in my opinion. Some interesting buildings chosen as case studies of the most misunderstood movement in architecture but the text doesn't really shed much light on the ethic/aesthetic behind the buildings or give you any sense of how they work for the people who use them. I also have a big issue with the photographs which seem to come from the author's personal collection and are really no better than point and shoot holiday shots - often half the buildings are obscured by shade and none show the interior of buildings which are not open to the public. Overall, not great.

Beach boys + Dan Sartain = Mrs Magician. Great start to the record with Nightlife with probably 5 other crackers set up for the summer. Unfortunately one or two filler tracks, but another great addition to the Swami crew.
