3.0 out of 5 stars Just another Squarepusher album, 21 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Just A Souvenir (Audio CD)
Yes he's a talented guy.

Yes it's all real instruments AND he plays them all himself. But therein lies a bit of a problem. The "solo project" problem - common to a lot of electronic artists. With nobody to temper Tom Jenkinson's great ideas it all sounds a bit disconnected (to me).

As Squarepusher LPs go this one is, on first play at least, one of the more accessible (see previous Amazon reviews vis-a-vis "increasing tendancy towards jazz-funk") - I would even go as far as to say it would be refreshing to see this get a nomination for the 2009 Mercury Music Prize. But on subsequent plays it leaves me a bit cold. The lyric "I am a member of society" can only raise a smile so many times (although it DID raise a smile - nice one TJ).

Not up there with his best (which for me would either be Go Plastic or Do You Know Squarepusher).
