4.0 out of 5 stars Definately a grower., 15 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Hello Everything (Audio CD)
I have always found squarepusher albums to be a bit hit-and-miss, usually having a few concisely brillient tracks, burried within slightly too much experimentation and jazz-infuenced experimental noodling. This effort is a nice step away from that, being much more consistant than his most recent work. Almost everytrack is enjoyable, with blissfully joyfull melodies and a lush, warm feel that pervades throughout. The few truely experimental tracks are thin enough on the group to be appreciated for what they are, and Tom Jenkinson's instrumental efforts are reigned in from excessive improvisation to tightly pre-meditated and nicely played facets of individual pieces, only adding to the warmth and uplifting effect of the album.

Some fans may be left wanting however, as there is a noticible lack of drum complexity. Most of the percussive work is either jazzy grooves with a real drumkit, or understated use of the amen with very little of Jenkinson's trademark micro-production. This does however give the 'live' sounding synth work more space to breathe.
