5.0 out of 5 stars One in a Million, 14 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
'Feed me Wierd Things' is Tom Jenkinson's first full length offering (his only for Rephlex) and its importance and influence cannot be underestimated. From an obscure upbrining as a Jaco Pastorious inspired Jazz muso, who could have predicted how fundamentally Mr Jenkinson would stir the worlds of dance, Jazz, fusion etc. music. This album is perhaps his most important, and certainly his freshest, most varied and continually inspired. From the memorable opening of 'Squarepusher Theme' with its high octane, impossibly intricate drum programming and Jazz styled live bass we are aware we are listening, quite genuinely, to 'sound like sound never sounded before' (to quote Richard d. James). Almost every track is a new revelation, a new revealing of the possibilies inherent in jazz-dance crossovers, and Tom Jenkinson delivers what he promises. Tracking through this album reveals such variety of mood and substance: the faintly haunting 'Tundra', the jazzy kitsch of 'Smedley's Melody', the industrial tersity of 'Dimotane Co.' or the suburban gloom of 'U.F.O's over Leytonstone' etc. etc. etc... As a personal reccomendation try 'Kodak' which is one of the most perfectly crafted dance tracks I have heard in a long time. This album offers a glimpse into the originality of Tom's mind, but cannot predict the radical departures he would embark on with each new release. Even if many people who really should have heard this album have not, it has developed a strong following and is well on its way to proving a landmark of 90's underground music- check it

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're looking for Squarepusher........., 20 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
.....stop looking and start buying here. This is an incredible album. I know people harp on about Big Loada and all its' glorious blah blah blah... but it's nothing - NOTHING compared to this. I mean - listen to the first track - jazzy broken drum n bass with a fretless bass solo. What? Tom Jenkinson can play bass at incredible speeds - is fluid and fully versed in jazz phrasing. Combine that with some of the most advanced programming around and you have an album that will make you want to buy everything that this bloke's ever written. There will always be the comparisons to Aphex - but, to be honest - Squarepusher is a lot more....'charged'. Erm....I know that might be controversial - I like them both....look - the crux of this waffle is - IF YOU'RE ON THIS PAGE - YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY SQUAREPUSHER - SO START HERE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Journey Through Sound, 23 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
Have you ever wondered what it's like to hear the feeling of flying at speed through the most beautiful, wild, deserted landscape ? Buy this for Tundra and lose yourself in the haunting, nostalgic melody - it will stay within you for a very long time. When the ethereal, church-like organ starts up it's as if you stopped the engines and started to fly or free-fall into the Tundra, it's a very romantic moment... As the track fades away you don't want it to end, ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Squarepusher, 2 Oct 2008
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
I won't repeat other reviews in describing the nature of the music, which I'm no expert in. However I would thoroughly recommend this album as one to get you started on Squarepusher. I bought Hard Normal Daddy and Ultravisor first and found them harder to get into. Feed Me Weird things is more consistently appealing, with interesting fast jazzy beats and melodies. With the exception of a few seconds of noise somewhere on the album, I would even play it in polite company without fear of "that weird experimental track" having them complain. If you're wondering how to get into this genre of music, go for this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Number One Squarepusher Album, 19 Dec 2011
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
This album is quite simply the best album he ever made and nothing he made after this really hit quite the same spot! if fact this album is what electronica is all about and what made squarepusher really special for me like the other big electronica acts (AFX, Autechre, The Black Dog, Astrobotina, Plaid, B.O.C, Ect Ect) if you like drum & bass, techno fused with electronica then there are some very fat bass lines and pounding beats on here as well as a mixture of other complicated mind bending old skool electronica sounds that are just totally wicked! its one of those rare albums good form start to finish and there's something for everybody providing you like that sort of thing in the first place, so buy it if your lucky enough get hold of a copy and trust me you will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Squarepusher Fan, 8 Aug 2011
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
Hello, my name is Gavin. I am a Squarepusher Fan since 2009. Mental Health etc. Been listening to Squarepusher for a couple of years now. This guy is a genius in his own way. The stuff on this album is immense. Favs are smedleys melody, squarepusher theme and the Earnest song, but each song has its own merit.
Anyway Cheers

Gavin (aka Squarepusher Fan outside London)

5.0 out of 5 stars a masterpiece, 16 Mar 2008
This review is from: Feed Me Weird Things (Audio CD)
totally new to Squarepusher but having heard of him before, I found this album in a charity shop today and am so glad I bought it

all are good tracks but my particular favourite is the gorgeous Goodnight Jade, possibly on of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, but at only 2:45 it is far too short. Tundra and Windscale 2 are brilliant and I'll definitely be looking into more Squarepusher in the future
