I liked At The Controls so much I bought myself Propellerhaed Reason and a midi control because I just wanted to create stuff like that myself. Now Holden's new album has come out and it's a cracker. It has a very organic smooth sound which ebbs and flows and continuously builds up to these gentle cresendos. I found my self getting very absorbed by it, like in a meditation state, I guess a trance mesmerised state. And when this happens the music seems to take on an immense scale filling the whole room with sound even though I might not have my amp up very loud. It is a truly beautiful album, and it just really teases my brain with all these interesting little souds, wiggles, and zaps, etc. It has a continuous beat/ rhythm all the way through and it sounds seemless with all the tracks gently blending into each other. And I love the percussion on this album which really does captivate me. There is also some gorgeous deep synth bass on a few of the tracks which is pleasing and awesome. It gets very 'alien' sounding at times too - really strange and mysterious.

I sort of put this as post techno/ dance, like Belbury Poly, which is my prefered type of music nowadays. I got fed up with techno a long time ago prefering Four Tet and Caribou because they use real instruments as well (Although Belbury Poly are purely electronic, like this album is). It seems that holden has been listening Four Tet and Caribou as well as they are featured on this album. This album might suite eveyone because it is very cerebral, and not about hard hitting techno or rock. For me it is sublime, but for it to work you need to get really drawn into it, it is not background music.

This is a sublime mix by the talented Mr Holden: rich, complex, intriguing "big sound" electronica. James has the ability to put together extremely diverse tracks as though they always belonged together, and build a musical experience that is both absorbing and unique. It absorbs from the first playing, but I know it will take many more plays to fully appreciate.

I have only two complaints: one Mr Holden stubornly produces far too little music in my book. And I cannot say I am a fan of that socialist realism cover art.

I might edit this review after I have listened to the set more, but that would be only to add more accolates and encouragement to buy it. We must keep this guy in work folks, and nag him to produce more music. He is quite simply a huge talent in electronica.

He did it again! It seems that with every release he puts out, his sound morphs into something completely different. The love of my life is the idiots are winning and I had a hard time letting go. I am ashamed to admit that at first I was a bit disappointed to find out that he was moving away from that unbelievably experimental IDM sound or whatever it was called he created with that landmark record. That however did not last long :p

Instead of making a follow up he gives us a mix compiled from very diverse artists, something completely new and different! Again it's very hard to pin this sound down and perhaps we shouldn't even try. This sounds more organic than his previous work. More fluid. Very hypnotic and at times psychedelic.

It's hard to single out individual songs simply because the entire record feels like a whole. It's mixed perfectly together and almost impossible to tell where one song ends and the other begins. There is not a single showstopper on the entire record but there is one that absolutely stands out for me and that is Holden's own remix of Mogwai - The sun smells too loud. This song is,... on youtube I tried to sum it up as "tribal feelings. back to the roots. raw. powerful. life at its peak. struggle. beautiful." but really words can not describe it.

Other highlights are Ursula Bogner with Punkte, Grackle with Disco, Eric Copeland with Auto Dimmer and Maserati with No More Sages. For me those were all new artists I had never even heard of. Caribou's Lemon Yoghurt, Legowelt's Flight of the Jupiter and Kieran Hebden+Steve Reid's Departure were artists I had heard of before but not these tracks and damn they are all great too! Holden's very hypnotic Triangle folds is also one of the best tracks on there although I prefer it on it's own.
