5.0 out of 5 stars Time has been kind to this album, 11 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Risotto (Audio CD)
6 years later and their music is still being pinched. It just goes to show that people really don't know what's good for them. Fluke have been round for ages, not that anybody would know. The only time people would have heard Fluke is being nailed to the back of their cinema seat in the middle of some action epic. From the same school of music as the Chems, the Prodigy, Orbital and the Crystal Method, Fluke seem to have shunned the limelight of, quite frankly, being the best and the one consistent element of electronic music today. People in the industry, music and film, know and love Fluke for the atmosphere they create. Their music is completely uncompromising with pauses for breath being a rare but beautiful thing. Every track here has a cohesive element here. They are pretty all as good as each other. The time when my hair truly stood on end was the final track. Usually the final slot is taken by a slower, more introspective piece. Not here. Its like a messenger heralding armageddon, but much, much worse. Exciting is not the word for this album. I think the first track title sums up the album. A defining piece of British electronica that will be totally ignored and there is nothing we can do about it.

Well said,my sentiments exactly got some of their stuff on 12" in the old days.Like other comments have mentioned they are a bit like Underworld but with a bit more uplift.'Electric Guitar' is still a cracking tune and if you like Fluke you will like 'Paladian Dawn by Sunday Club' still one of my favorite tunes.

Wow! Someone commented on this old review! Only took 6 years! Listened to it again a few months back and it is STILL awesome, even though my tastes have changed quite dramatically since first reviewing this, quite frankly, timeless album. I've said it once and i'll say it again: Time has been kind to it. Thanks for tip, i'll be sure to follow it up.

Hah! Another comment on this old review! Thank you for the kind words, you have made an excellent choice. It's a great album to own the physical copy of, especially as the fantastic sleeve and packaging design was done by the now wound-down The Designers Republic. Have a good one!

Excellent! I definitely got my money's worth out of that album, make sure you check out the artwork in the sleeve, it's brilliant. Definitely worth checking out Puppy, but Risotto is my favourite. Happy listening!
