Amen Andrews is an alter-ego of Luke Vibert, and if I had realised that earlier I would have bought this when it came out but I don't think this had any publicity, I only found out by chance after reading something about something else and it briefly mentioned this CD. After having been really impressed by the most recent Wagon Christ album and the Kerrier District album, I hoped this would be just as good, and it is. Each Luke Vibert name seems to indicate a different approach to electronic music and that is the case with Amen Andrews. some of the tracks on this CD are slower dubstep style tracks with very heavy slabs of bass, and some are early 90s jungle influenced tracks with lots of Amen-brother loops as the name suggests. overall it's like a cross between the Lover's Acid compilation and the Plug - "Drum and Bass for Papa" album, only heavier, and by 'heavier' I mean break-your-speakers type heavy. definitely recommended for anyone who has liked any of luke vibert's material before, especially the more drum'n'bassy stuff. 5 stars

You probably already know that this is Luke Vibert, friend of Aphex Twin, and the best thing to come out of Worcester (with the possible exception of Lea & Perrins Sauce) by another name.
His most well known pseudonym is Wagon Christ and this is basically a collection of tracks that he has released under his other names ("Amen Andrews" and "Spac Hand Luke").
All these tracks are deep, fun and sometimes jungle-y or even rave-y stuff. It's probably not a classic album but I'd recommend you buy it, especially if you like the Wagon Christ stuff. It's a welcome addition to any Luke Vibert or Wagon Christ collection.
As Luke Vibert he tends to be a bit deeper and acidy, as Wagon Christ he is a bit more fun and varied. It's all good.

Nothing particularly unexpected here, the production and musicianship is excellent but as a whole the album has far too few highlights. It is essentially Drum and Bass but in a rather self indulgent style. Recommend to fans of Squarepusher's more 'difficult' material but there are no big dance floor numbers on here, save perhaps for 'Inteligent' which is my personal favourite.
