This review is from: Breakthrough (Audio CD)
There is much to like about this album, but each track seems to be cut short before being properly developed. The result is something that feels like a sketch book, where a lot of interesting things have been scribbled down and then everything has been thrown in, rather than refining and developing just a few of them into something more exciting. It could have been great, but instead is just a curiosity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kid is in rare form, 2 Dec 2012
This review is from: Kid Koala (Audio CD)
This is scratchy, bluesy genius from Kid Koala. He has put together a mix of blues samples, beats and scratches that manages to sound old fashioned in the best possible way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Style over content, 11 May 2009
After the beautiful and bloody brilliance of the original Afro Samurai I had high hopes for this, unfortunately what would have worked well as another mini-series lacks focus as a feature length outing. Instead of plotted episodes giving opportunity to flesh out the freaks, weirdos and ronins, ASR and its cast of one dimensional characters just rambles along through an exquisitely realised world from battle to battle without any sense of urgency and then suddenly the end; all of this to Ninja Ninja's increasingly annoying gibbering.

So much talent has been thrown at this and it is let down by a failure to develop the story whilst cramming too much into an hour and a half. Watch the original on repeat and wait for the inevitable third instalment.
