5.0 out of 5 stars A prophetic title for perhaps the best album of the 90s, 1 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Endtroducing..... (Audio CD)
Some of the reviews on here pretty much echo what I thought when I first heard this record. It is a timeless album, it is a classic (despite it being sample based music) and whatever you listen to, it demands to be in your collection. There is a fine mix of funk (James Brown), chillout (prog rock samples!) and the best track of the lot, "The Number Song", featuring an utterly superb sample of "Orion" from Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" album. Thankfully, DJ Shadow retains his humility and refuses to spout pretentious "big-ups" to people he doesn't really like, and use stupid colloquial terms like "bangin' tune". That is the sort of guff that puts a lot of people off taking this music seriously. Seriously, even if you don't usually listen to this sort of music, do a System Of A Down and "Steal This Album", because it is a refreshing reminder that original and challenging (without being self-indulgent) musicians do exist.
