5.0 out of 5 stars Close your eyes and forget everything
This album will take you somewhere else. This is DJ Spooky's medicine for your ears and your brain. Paul D Miller's own style he calls "illbient" is a merger of ambience and music thats ill.

If you like this album, you'll love the "The Quick and the Dead". Also try and get hold of the mix he did for Nest Magazine.
An experimentalist at heart, DJ Spooky is a parallel to the sounds of DJ Shadow, DJ Krush and other diggers/producers such as Jel, Mr Dibbs and EL-P/Company Flow

Having bought this on the basis of comparisons between him and THE GREAT DJ SHADOW I was a tad dissapointed. This album seems to be somewhere between aphex twin's ambient works and Shadow's down-tempo stuff. Still recommended
