Oh yes you want this,
This review is from: One Word Extinguisher (Audio CD)
I must confess I made a bit of a leap into the unknown with this album. I am a serious fan of their label buddies Aphex Twin, but I knew before purchase that it would be vastly different. I was not disappointed. In this album this listener is presented with a mix of electronica, hip-hop, chilled synth, some really ecclectic sounds that I just can't categorize, and wierd vocal interludes. I think the best way to describe this would be some sort of thinking-man's DJ Shadow. When you have moved on in your taste, and listened to that genre to the extent you have had enough, then this would be a great advance. Its pretty chilled out, but provides some really interesting listening, rather than simply melting into the background. The album is hugely varied, with some dub-fuelled human beat-boxing going on, though its not as dark as something like Deadly Avenger.
I would thoroughly advise what is simply a very good album and a pleasure to listen to, plus the cover is nice!
