4.0 out of 5 stars REMEMBERED WITH AFFECTION AND RESPECT
The final album from NEW MUSIK and perhaps the weakest of the three, but WARP is still a wonderful thing of its time.

The most serious negative - when compared with FROM A TO B and ANYWHERE - is the absense of a real drummer. Part-time or otherwise, Phil Towner's presence behind the skins on the first two releases helped to retain that vital element of humanity...

3.0 out of 5 stars 'Patchy Original Album Saved By Extra Tracks'
Without doubt, 'Warp' is the weakest of the three albums that New Musik released. This said, it is not without it's merits and is helped considerably here by the inclusion of some interesting and hard to get extra tracks.

So, why is 'Warp' the weakest New Musik album? In fact, there are a number of reasons. One is that some of the songs are simply not that...

3.0 out of 5 stars 'Patchy Original Album Saved By Extra Tracks', 14 Sept. 2008

This review is from: Warp (Audio CD)
Without doubt, 'Warp' is the weakest of the three albums that New Musik released. This said, it is not without it's merits and is helped considerably here by the inclusion of some interesting and hard to get extra tracks.

So, why is 'Warp' the weakest New Musik album? In fact, there are a number of reasons. One is that some of the songs are simply not that good. Singles 'All You Need Is Love' (2nd listed track of that name and a Beatles cover) and the title track are actually two of the worst songs on the album and both were awful choices for single release. Both have a very stark, metronomic drumbeat running throughout. While this is nothing unusual for a New Musik track, usually there are lots of other interesting things going on musically around that beat to offset the monotony. But these don't jump out of the mix at you this time however and by the end of both tracks you feel like pulling your hair out! 'Green And Red (respectively)' and, worst of all, the EXTREMELY droning and sluggish 'Hunting' are also pretty poor. In fact, the overall production sound is not up to Tony Mansfield's usual standard this time either and things sound weedy and tinny on a lot of this album.

So, that's the bad news. The GOOD news is that fans will like 'Here Come The People' (almost an instrumental), 'A Train On Twisted Tracks' (best thing on the whole album and classic New Musik), the other 'All You Need Is Love' and the slightly funky 'Kingdom For Horses'. As for the other original album tracks, they fall in-between the great and the not so great. All in all, the original 'Warp' album sounds exactly like what it is;- the work of two different line ups of the band muddled together.

But then we come to the extra tracks and this is where the desirability of this cd goes up. Both the single and 12" version of the first single from the album 'The Planet Doesn't Mind' are different (and superior) to the album version. 'Twelfth House' is pretty good, '24 Hours From Culture -Part 2' is experimental but engaging, and the remix of 'Here Come The People' is longer! HA HA All of these additions make this a worthwhile purchase despite the import price.

So, to sum up then, 6 out of 10 for the original album and 8 out of 10 for the extra tracks.
