5.0 out of 5 stars Best electronic album of 2002, 20 Feb. 2003

This review is from: Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972 - 2006 (Audio CD)
I remember the first time i heard Venetian Snares... it reminded me of the first time i heard aphex twin or autechre right back when IDM was fairly new to me. His work is revolutionary, i can't remember being moved by music this way before... the rhythms so astounding, beats so voilent its easy to get lost in it all. This album basically takes the pee out of the british jungle scene, tracks like "dance like your selling nails" will make you laugh - with the opera vocals singing "rudeboy" and "jungle is massif" over baroque lute playing, which suddenly bursts into a rainbow of beats faster than you can keep track. Tracks like ronnie rocket are particularly noteworthy but all the tracks on this album are amazing. This is one of his more accessable albums and is a good place to start, if youve already heard of venetian snares then no doubt you will be buying this no matter what i say. GO BUY NOW!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mad, Angry and Intense, 20 Jun. 2003

I was delighted when I first heard about Venetian Snares, he had been described as "Like Squarepusher but faster and harder." However, this is not a good description for VS's music. A better description would be "Like Squarepusher but sliced to peices and thrown in a grinder." Venetian Snares pulls of a furious blend of intense noises very sucessfully, sometimes however, you can get lost in the Subject Matter. Tracks one and four are my favourites on this particular album, however I feel VS has done better on previous albums. This is the easiest to listen to though, so if you're new to the world of VS, or the world of intense drill 'n' bass i'd recommend you to start with this one. My personal favourite albums by VS are "Find Candice" and "Winter in the Belly of a Snake" simply because they are even more furious than this one! ~Geek

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - Aaron Funk at his best, 12 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972 - 2006 (Audio CD)
Well, what can I say, this is Aaron Funk well and truly at his best.
Forget the comparitively tuneless driving repetitive beats he often produces, this album is all about the tunes.

The opener, 'Dance Like You're Selling Nails' is fantastic and, like was mentioned before really put a smile on your face. It swiftly moves into the barmy 'Banana Seat Girl' which is....well, barmy!

The other noteworthy tracks on here are the brilliant 'Walmer Side', the serene 'Dismantling Five Years' and the explosively madcap 'We Are Oceans' which brings my favourite VSnares album to close
