This Will Make You Look Over Your Shoulder At Times.....,

This review is from: Absence (Audio CD)
I do agree that this is not easy listening and you need to put the work in for it to pay off. A simple statement could be something along the likes of Chuck D (Public Enemy) rapping over something from Godflesh or Nine Inch Nails but it's often more challenging than that.
2 tracks stick out; Asylum which is VERY heavy & aggressive and boasts some of the best scratches that I have ever heard on any Hip Hop track, and Opiate The Masses which boast a savage anti-religion stance and again more great sampling.
The rapping is good (although slightly one dimensional) and all the DJ work is of high standard. Yes, I would have liked some more sampled guitar work but it's a minor quibble.
The theme to these ears is urban decay. Walk through any subway at midnight or any run down estate with this on your I-Pod or MP3 player to get a real feel of the unease that this music suggests!!
