5.0 out of 5 stars tom jenkinson pushes aphex twin off the top spot, 1 Oct 2002
This review is from: Do You Know Squarepusher (Audio CD)
Wow. This is a total must-have for squarepusher fans and new ears alike. CD#1 is very typical squarepusher, more schitzophrenic beats [faster than anything since big loada] followed by the occasional creepy minimal beatless music that wouldn't sound out of place in a david lynch movie. Tom uses more vocals than he usually does, giving a very similar sound to 'red hot car' in parts. Typically though, all the vocals are completely and gorgeously soaked in various fx. The album sounds a little more approachable than some previous efforts [some of the more 'difficult' tracks on go plastic immeadiately spring to mind]and the final track, a remix of the classic 'love will tear us apart' is amazing, although maybe a little out of place. Now we move on to cd#2, which, according to amazon is track 8, but is actually 10 live tracks recorded in japan last year. This is the CD that deserves 6 out of 5 stars. It is completely mind bending. Taking tracks from cd#1, big loada, go plastic and some new [i think] ones as well, Tom effortlessly brings the audience into a climax time and time again, following ridiculously frantic tracks with, well, basically noise, then yelling at the crowd at the top of his voice to 'get ready to go full speed' [he sounds like he's about to cough up a lung he's shouting so hard] before splitting the ear drums of everyone in the room with Anstromm-Feck 4, my personal favourite from cd#1. Genius. Listening on my headphones, it felt like everyone on the train to work was there at the gig with me. Absolutely fantastic.
