5.0 out of 5 stars Non-electronic electronic music?, 7 Nov 2003
This review is from: Music Is Rotted One Note (Audio CD)
There are two things you should know before buying this album.
Firstly, this is not an electronic album. I'm sure a lot of people will know Squarepusher as a Warp IDM arist often compared to Aphex Twin - that's not what we have here. If you're after more standard drum'n'bass, head for Hard Normal Daddy or Feed Me Weird Things. If you want slightly more mangled up drilly breaks, try out Go Plastic or Do You Know Squarepusher? This album could be loosly described as fusion jazz, with freeform jazz drums, guitar, double bass and electric piano all over the place, mixed in with some particularly odd squelchy synths.
Secondly, this record requires close listening. I had downloaded a few short samples of the album, so knew what to expect, yet I was ultimately disappointed on first listen. It seemed to ramble on without going anywhere. And it's true that a number of tracks have a very similar sound to them. But after a few close listens, particularly concentrating on the music, I discovered it was as great as I was expecting, and even better!
So if slightly messed up fusion jazz with the odd electronic moment sounds good for you, I couldn't recommend this album enough.
