5.0 out of 5 stars Best abulm of 2003 so far
I havent had this CD for long so im still getting used to it. This appears to be Aaron Funks most accesable and possibly least harsh albums yet. Tracks like Gottrahmen could have been written by Randy Greif, and the drum patterns tend to consist more of squeaks and electronic slicing than the actuall distorted snares of his older works, and i have to say i like this sound...

3.0 out of 5 stars An ambient swamp
Sorry to rain on your parade people but this is a let down from Venetian Snares. Granted tracks like Suffocate and Dad are inspired moments but when I first listened to this I came to the conclusion that about half the tracks just aren't necissary. Icosikapient is the dullest track he's ever done and the Misfit's cover; She, well what on earth was that supposed to be...

Tracks like Gottrahmen could have been written by Randy Greif, and the drum patterns tend to consist more of squeaks and electronic slicing than the actuall distorted snares of his older works, and i have to say i like this sound as much as anything hes done so far. I think by comparison its probably closest to 2370894 in sound. Definately not as raw and sounds more produced than the printf and greg hates car culture era. But this is as awesome and forfilling as any album you could expect from the snares. I highly recommend it above any other electronic artist you could think of, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, 23 Dec 2003
This review is from: Winter In The Belly Of A Snake (Audio CD)
Being that most hated of entities on the electronic scene, the converted rock fan (although I have the good manners to hate Autechre, unlike all the Radiohead fans), my knowledge of this genre (glitch n' bass? :/) is still small, but WITBOAS is an utterly unbelievable, perfect masterpiece. Fragile, terrifying at times, endlessly inventive, stunningly intricate. Just buy it, god dammit :P You won't regret having waited 4-6 weeks.

This is worth it for the highpoints but for newcomers to Snares or people just conscious of their spending, there are better and more consistent Snares releases out there.
