5.0 out of 5 stars underrated?
If you come to this album expecting twisted drill'n'bass you will be disappointed.. but to my mind this is the best constructed and simply the most intelligent of squarepusher's efforts. Beautifully melodic yet fairly heavy electronica contrast with improv jazz snippets: you will need an open mind to deal with the transitions but ultimately (unlike most other warp...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sitting on the fence
Good points: Square Rave, Dedicated Loop, Tomorrow World, these three being excellent danceable yet mellow tunes with a depth of sound that was lacking in the Big Loada/HN Daddy-era. The clear sound and slightly more ambient feel than on previous 'Pusher releases.
Bad points: Out of 17 tracks, about ten of them last under a minute, and are completely pointless...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sitting on the fence, 5 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Selection Sixteen (Audio CD)
Good points: Square Rave, Dedicated Loop, Tomorrow World, these three being excellent danceable yet mellow tunes with a depth of sound that was lacking in the Big Loada/HN Daddy-era. The clear sound and slightly more ambient feel than on previous 'Pusher releases.
Bad points: Out of 17 tracks, about ten of them last under a minute, and are completely pointless. Notably so is Tesko, which consists of twenty seconds of Tom Jenkinson doing a Mr Bean impression.
For £7 you might as well buy it if you're into this sort of ambient/jazz/drum'n'bass fusion, but don't expect too much, although the tracks mentioned earlier are well worth it, there's little of interest after track 5.

If you come to this album expecting twisted drill'n'bass you will be disappointed.. but to my mind this is the best constructed and simply the most intelligent of squarepusher's efforts. Beautifully melodic yet fairly heavy electronica contrast with improv jazz snippets: you will need an open mind to deal with the transitions but ultimately (unlike most other warp releases) this record works as an album as opposed to a collection of potential single releases. One of my favourite 'electronica' albums, I rate this as highly as aphex's selected ambient works for its breadth and melodic sensibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars it tastes good to me, 2 July 2001
This review is from: Selection Sixteen (Audio CD)
selection sixteen was the first squarepusher cd that i bought i loved this cd right away. this was a good intro to squarepusher because it is not as crazy as some of his other releases. some of his other disc are sometime to much for first time listeners this one seems more electronica influenced it is really teched out yet also jazzy.

4.0 out of 5 stars come on (my selector), 28 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Selection Sixteen (Audio CD)
its not that bad, in fact its one of my favourite squarepusher albums, i agree the album doesn't maintain the same quality throughout, he has chilled out with the drum programming which i found a nice change, the length of tracks is rather annoying but some of the tracks are just so good you overlook these small glitches, "Time Borb" is one of my favourite tracks of all time, its only about a minute, but the jazziness and the programming is just unbelievable, his brothers mix at the end is also quite enjoyable, a definate purchase
