It takes guts to break the mould,
This review is from: Rival Dealer EP (Audio CD)
Everything he's done so far is brilliant. Rough Sleeper/Truant was a big moment for me a year ago, and after two months of listening, this is just as good. I've seen a lot of reviews which have been very scathing about the very different sound palettes used, especially in the 2nd and 3rd tracks, but why should he be restricted to the same templates through his career? This is thrilling, highly developed music, and has a provocative feel which is only enhanced by the vocal samples (which I suspect have been very, very thoughtfully employed).
He's become a butterfly amongst the caterpillars with this release. No longer first among equals, but flying off into new worlds.
