5.0 out of 5 stars autechno!, 14 May 2003
This is a cracking little gem in autechre's huge back catalogue, mixing the ususal abstract melodies and noises with some absolutely thumping beats. Despite only being four tracks long this EP really packs a punch!
I would describe this as a must-have for any autechre fan not just the die-hards. In fact, 'second bad vilbel' is one of the best pieces they've ever released and almost worth the money by itself!
top material!
All Killer No Filler - Sum 41 CD ~ Sum 41
4.0 out of 5 stars Keep working at it!^_^, 22 Sep 2001
The rather young age of Sum 41 makes it hard to believe that this is the band's second album. These guys are probably the most energetic and charismatic band around today in the increasingly crowded world of pop-punk, so much so that it's safe to say that this record is actually exhausting to listen to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive..., 9 Sep 2001
If you do not normally listen to nu-metal or any music of that noisy, shouty ilk because you find it brainless and unstimulating then mudvayne will be a real breath of fresh air. Offering a unique jekyll+hyde vocal style with quiet and haunting vocals in the versesm, intercut with some crazy riffs and deep throaty shouting from the frontman. This gives a paranoid almost schizophrenic feel to the whole record. as a side note mudvayne seem to be the only band in their genre to actually claim to have any artistic merit at all, citing Stanley Kubrick as a major inspiration for this record. This album also has the cleverest name I have seen...
