5.0 out of 5 stars the start of something good, 23 Aug 2007
This review is from: Lifesblood (Audio CD)
The foundation on which later mastodon gems were built. Have always loved this band and this cd is one of the many reasons why. 'Shadows that move is an awesome track with brilliant grooves, and the epic, beautiful metal barrage of 'Battle at Sea' is definitely one of my top 3 all time mastodon songs. This ep is starting to become a rarity now so grab it while you can!

4.0 out of 5 stars Monolithic Darkness!, 6 July 2007
This review is from: Chaos Is My Name (Audio CD)
Basically, James Plotkin of doom officionados Khanate and female doom vocalist Runhild Gammelsaeter team up to create a dark, disturbing concept album based on "a tumultuous journey through the trials of the human condition". In other words, this is dark and unnerving, with ambient moods and chilling soundscapes being the central theme, occasionally broken up by slabs of distorted guitar riffs, odd rhythmic drum patterns and Gammelsaeter's raw, broken-glass-gargling type vocal contributions. Check this out if you are a fan of similar doom-metal acts such as Khanate, Sunn O))), etc. Avoid if you dislike non-melodic, experimental and generally disturbing music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn it Up!, 21 Mar 2007
This review is from: Ruff Draft (Audio CD)
This re-issue of Dilla's Ruff Draft EP, originally released on Mummy records, is everything you would expect from the fallen beatmaker-extraordinaire. Its rough, uncompromising and straight up raw, while still displaying Dilla's trademark soul and funk undertones - its these kinds of beats that keeps hiphop going! If you are a fan of J Dilla then you will no doubt have either bought it already, or you will have it on your wish list. And even if you are not familiar with the works of the late James Yancey, it really is worth checking out. The legacy lives on!

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof of genius, 18 Jan 2007
As other reviewers have already stated, this album is not for the jazz purist. However, I think it is harsh and actually quite narrow minded to say the album is poor. Madlib is a modern day musical Einstein when it comes to production, remixing and all-round musical creativity, and evidence of this is provided in the form of this album. Being that I am a fan of the Blue Note back catalogue and a Madlib devotee, this has to be one of my all time favourite albums.

He picked out some tracks from the Blue Note back catalogue that I was never too fond of e.g. Hancock's 'Dolphin Dance' and 'Stormy' by Reuben Wilson, and made them into compositions that came alive. Personal highlights for me have to be 'Distant Land', 'Mystic Bounce', and in particular the brilliantly relaxed 'Montara', the re-worked Bobby Hutcherson track originally off his '75 album of the same name.

I think that people who label this album as poor should realise that not only are the production, remixing and choice of original compositions all excellent, but that Madlib is expandng his creative boundaries and making jazz and soul gradually more accessible by introducing them, albeit in a remixed hiphop format, to a different audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars The empire strikes back..., 14 Jan 2007
This review is from: Mdz.04 (Audio CD)
This is a really really solid album. Goldie has never been afraid to put his label's name behind drum and bass that experiments and pushes boundaries, and he has assembled a true gem here. Tracks like 'Age of Empires' by Photek, '16 Stories' by Seba & Lenk and 'Prejudice & Politics' by Kryptic Minds & Leon Switch, are the kind of tracks that encapsulate that distinctive Metalheadz sound. The Goldie studio mix acts as another example of why this is a must buy for any Metalheadz fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, soulful, quality., 14 Jan 2007
I have always been a fan of Marcus Intalex, so I was eager to get this release as soon as possible, and upon purchase i wasnt disappointed. This album focuses on displaying really forward thinking, mature sounding drum n bass. Artists such as Klute, Beta 2 and Seba are all welcome guests and serve up some of the most efficiently produced, crisp sounding DnB tracks of recent times. A good buy if you really love well made, soulful and deep drum n bass.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention all Meshuggah Fans!, 8 Dec 2006
This review is from: Nothing: +DVD (Audio CD)
As a dedicated fan of Meshuggah, I already owned the original version of 'Nothing' that was released in 2002. I thought that the album contained some brilliant moments and some not so brilliant ones. However, it seemed as if something was missing - the guitars sounded different - they did'nt seem to have the same tuning or depth with which we usually associate with Meshuggah. The band have even said that due to time restrictions during recording, the album did'nt sound as they would have liked it to.

If, like me, upon this new remastered release of 'Nothing' you were thinking 'It probably won't sound any different', think again. The new version sounds so much better than the old. The heavyness has returned! The guitars seem to invigorate every aspect of the record. Even the drums sound a lot better, as do the vocals. Even if you already own the old version, you really need to buy this one. Thordendaal has finally brought justice to this album by adding new layers of additional guitars and trimming some loose ends, which makes this mix superior to the original. With the added bonus of a DVD, it just can't be ignored. Buy it Now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really the virus sound, but check it out, 21 Nov 2006
I knew this cd wasnt going to be the traditional output of Ed Rush and Optical, but seeing as they are such well respected and brilliant members of the DnB scene, i knew i shud check it out. Although the overall feel is more of a bouncy dancefloor sound rather than their favoured dark, funky tech stuff, some of the tunes, especially the Ed Rush and Optical remixes, are top quality. The Pendulum remix of 'Bacteria' is one of my favourite DnB tunes ever, and is one of those rare remixes that is better than the original. The DVD makes this good value for money, so definitely worth buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overrated, 21 Nov 2006
This review is from: Hold Your Colour (Audio CD)
Firstly, its interesting that a lot of the 5 star reviews came from people who dont usually listen to drum n bass. I bought this album after hearing Pendulum classics like 'Masochist' and the awesome remix of Ed Rush And Optical's 'Bacteria', which in my opinion is still the best thing they have done. After listening to this album all the way through, I was really disappointed with it. They seem to have opted for a more techno/pop sound with most of the tunes on here, with the exception of 'Tarantula' and the two better tracks off the album, 'Through The Loop' and 'The Terminal'. I was expecting a much heavier, darker sound from this LP. Overall, this is a good buy for someone who doesnt really listen to drum n bass or likes the lighter, more techno-type sound of the genre.
