5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Shadow..., 24 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Deadringer (Audio CD)
This is a truly excellent record - easily the best cut-and-paste style sample-based album since Endtroducing.
Much more fun and uptempo than Shadow's stuff, this album also features some of the finest and most intelligent rap tunes you'll hear.
Head nodding stuff from beginning to end - undoubtedly in the top five of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars sublime electronica..., 6 Feb. 2002
This review is from: Black Buildings (Audio CD)
it's difficult to put into words what makes this album so special - as the moods and emotions of the music itself are so understated and perfectly judged... it's a lot more mellow than the music of the detroit techno masters, but easily the equal of any of Carl Craig's stuff in terms of melody.
The music was supposed to have been inspired by Detroit's architecture and it does sound like a film score in places, as it's so intensely evocative. Excellent, mature music that sounds just as good as background music as it does through headphones.

2.0 out of 5 stars mildly entertaining nonsense, 24 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Clouddead (Audio CD)
I had high hopes for this album after hearing doseone with boom bip on 'the Birdcatcher Returns' - really good abstract hiphop... but it failed to live up to them.
Call me old-fashioned but I quite like my music to make a connection - abstract is good but there is a boundary between oddly phrased lyrics that make you think and abstract ramblings of total drivel, and this album crosses it.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is it., 24 Oct. 2001
This review is from: Tragic Epilogue (Audio CD)
if you're looking for the next level in hiphop/rap - or just interested in any music that's being made right out on the edge, pushing the boundaries, this is for you.
Two years on this is still without doubt the most incredible and visionary hiphop album yet produced - the rhymes are pure abstract poetry, but unlike say, Clouddead, they make sense - it's not intentionally obscure, just extremely intelligent lyrics. They conjure up all sorts of images like the best poetry should, and the interplay between the music and wordplay is second to none...
this is the future of hiphop...
"application of technique shall... constantly expand"

5.0 out of 5 stars a high quality set, 24 Sept. 2001
Who cares how the tracks are mixed - I didn't notice anything jarring in it. The tunes are excellent and it's a very good soulful collection to chill to, including both old soul nuggets and new hiphop and electronica tracks - very very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars a pocketful of dope rhymes, 29 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Millennium Metaphors (Audio CD)
If you're reading this because you've heard their brilliant contribution to the Skitz album - 'Cordless Mics at 20 Paces' - then rest assured, the album is well up to that standard, stunning rapping skills and great, clever and funny rhymes.
Support UK HipHop, this, Skitz and Roots Manuva are as good as anything that anyone else can offer. It's real.

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly seminal, 29 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Blue Lines (Audio CD)
4 stars?!????
what is going on when one grumpy spoiler can reduce the status of a classic album undeserved 4 star rating - if you're reading this and you don't have the album then you're missing out on a timeless, definitive expression of British music-making... utterly brilliant, a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning - Genius at Work, 21 May 2001
This review is from: Bodily Functions (Audio CD)
Having read about the way that Matthew Herbert makes music out of anything that comes to hand, how he spent 15 minutes of a show in the Royal Albert Hall entertaining the audience by scrunching a crisp packet into a microphone, how this new album features percussion sounds from skin, bones and hair and extensively samples his newborn baby - I was prepared for the depth and variety of sound on the album and the detail and barmy brilliance of the composition...
What I wasn't prepared for was quite how purely melodic and emotionally captivating the songs on the album have proved to be... the vocals are hauntingly beautiful and the quality of playing on the piano and strings are also superb...
I can't recommend this album highly enough - I buy and listen to a LOT of music, and this is an album of the year for sure... combining the best of electronic music with some beautiful classical musicianship.
