4.0 out of 5 stars Pining For The Past
Believe it or not, this is Kieran Hebden's seventh studio album under the guise of the seminal Four Tet brand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay - not great
A reasonable selection of songs but not as good as their other albums. Didn't really get into it as much.

Believe it or not, this is Kieran Hebden's seventh studio album under the guise of the seminal Four Tet brand.

As the title suggested (and the advance single 'Kool FM' confirmed) Kieran takes us on a nostalgia tour of UK bass music; inspired by a combination of pure reminiscence and also time in the studio with Burial.

The result is analogous to the sound of neurons re-firing in the brain old memories of a fuzzy pirate radio station. It's an uncharacteristically gritty and often dark affair that proves Kieran isn't worried to try out new things.

Ironically however, this isn't of course new. In fact there are a lot of other artists pushing future garage and bass music very steadily indeed. Avid fans of Four Tet will also be themselves yearning for the past for the classic symphonic tapestries of Rounds or Everything Ecstatic - they are left wanting.

Pleasingly, the production quality remains high. And it is testament to Kieran's ability that even when trying new sounds and techniques he still manages to maintain a unique artistry that remains ultimately satisfying.

Listen to: "Parallel Jalebi", "Ba Teaches Yoga", "Unicorn"

5.0 out of 5 stars This album changed 2013 for me!, 27 April 2014

An amazing amazing record. Got this on vinyl the week it came out and still listen to it so often. I saw Four Tet live for the first time upon this release and this album added such a unique twist to his live sets and DJ sets. It is really different to his previous work which we've been used to for the previous years but I'm excited for the new direction. (I've since seen him 7 times since getting this record and always enjoy it massively when he drops Buchla in the clubs!) Definitely a stand out track from the album. the closing track "your body feels" is also one of the most stunning ambient tracks I've heard in a long time. Would highly recommend.
