5.0 out of 5 stars I Am A Teacher....Of The Drum, 22 Jan. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Endtroducing..... (Audio CD)
From the moment 'Best Foot Forward' introduces Shadow (aka San Fransisco born Josh Davis) as "just your favourite DJ saviour", you know it's going to be a rollercoaster ride. From the chilled out bliss of 'What Does Your Soul Look Like?' to the frantic beats of 'Stem', this is the sound of modern music being re-invented. It's not just his exquisite choice of samples, it's the revlutionary way he uses them to create completely new pieces of music. The standout track for me (and many others) has always been 'Midnight In A Perfect World', with its delicious female vocal draped over that fantastic hook which makes you weak at the knees every time you hear it. All that and a pounding beat added to the fray make it an absolutely killer tune. But having said that all the tracks on this album have a remarkably polished quality about them, even the slightly rawer 'Napalm Death', and Shadow has somehow managed to capture a spectrum of different moods and make them work on one album. There is no easy way to sum up this album, all I can do is plead that if you don't have it, you must buy it. It is the defining album of its kind for the nineties, and I believe it will in later years come to be regarded as one of the classics of all time.
