When I first heard the title track of this record when Jenkinson released it as the untitled 12", I thought we were all about to witness a complete turnaround for the crazy overlord of electronica... an abandonment of the inaccessible noisescapes which haunted much of previous release "Go Plastic" - in favour of real, concrete melodies and harmonies and even vocals being given the SP treatment in what could have been the record of the millennium. So when I first listened to the whole album I was somewhat surprised.
Squarepusher blows all expectations of his music to pieces here. The music is impossible to describe - in fact I can't even really say whether I like it or not. In fact the question "do I like this?" when applied to this record seems to call for a third answer: not yes, not no... something else entirely... In fact, the only conclusion I can draw from my repeated listenings of this record is that all attempts to classify, qualify, analyse or interpret this music are completely futile. This music is untouchable to the human mind - all you can do is listen, listen, listen, until you go mad, or until your neighbours come round and beat you with a big stick.
Having said that, I think a real high point in the record comes at the end of the penultimate track, Mutilation Colony. Having squeezed your brain through a technological juicer, Jankinson makes it suddenly apparent that what you're listening to started life as a recorded drum set. Then the whole thing goes completely wild and finishes with you lying on the floor in a foetal position not knowing what the hell's happened and where on earth anyone can really go from here... and then, almost gleefully, it launches into Love Will Tear Us Apart.

I won't lie to you, this isn't the easiest album to get in to. This is almost my first trip into the world of Squarepusher, my previous experience being limited to hearing "We Are Reasonable People", and thinking I must get this track. If you like Aphex, mixed with a bit of LFO, twisted together with the freakier bits of the Orb and a nice slice of Goldie - then this is for you. In fact that does it a disservice, since this is a music all of its own. Fanbloodytastic.

Ok, I love squarepusher. I would even say he's my favorite electronic musician in the world... even more than the genius, Aphex Twin! I'm even an openminded lover of artists from john cage to schoenberg to aphex's and squarepusher's most trying and experimental tracks. However, this album seems to me to have so much experimental stuff, that it drowns out and distorts any real, new musical message or argument. Now, previous albums of SP's were balanced, but this seems to be pushing the limits of listenability. The live CD on the album is it's highlight in my opinion as it demonstrates the excitement of seeing SP live. Being in the midwest of the US, I've never had a chance to see him live, so it's great to hear what it's like. The reverb quality of the recording is also very interesting in itself... makes it sound more real.... and the crowd, although sounding like it's somewhere in the 20's, seems to be lost in a universe of SquarePusher's making... they are totally under his control. In the first track, you know you are into something when some annonymous person screams out, "What's going on???".
i would give it an overall 5 if it weren't for the lack of more melodic oriented tracks (like the many on all of his previous albums). Perhaps with more time and listenings, his new stuff will grow on me and I will understand and appreciate it more... perhaps i don't know squarepusher after all. He's still the best out there. I recommend it highly. I just want to say too, that my fav album of his: Music is Rotted One Note... check it out if you haven't already --it may be one of the most important musical works of the century.

well... this is just very, very good. seeing as you're looking at the reviews of a squarepusher album, you are probably familiar with what mr. jenkinson is up to in general. If you haven't heard Squarepusher, then, well... there's really nothing that I could compare this to, although if you haven't heard Squarepusher, I'd go for Go Plastic or Hard Normal Daddy first. Not to say thier particulalry accessible, but this is probably not the thing to ease you into what he does. Like Squarepusher, like Go Plastic, then this is in much the same, albeit highly original style. And if you like Go Plastic, you're going to like this. A lot. A LOT. And the live disc is ace, too... even if it isn't Tom with a bunch of live musicians, which is something that I'm pretty sure would be utterly amazing, that is, if he could find enough musicians that would be capable of keeping up with the music he writes. Small gripe, really, when you're listening to something as good as this.

If you dont know squarepusher, think of Drum and bass mixed with a BBC sci fi sound effects cd, sped up 4 times, and constructed whilst on LSD, you may be half way there. Yet this is just one side to the man Tom Jenkinson (sqaurepusher.)
This album opens with the amazing "Do You Know Squarepusher" like some elctronica version of waht Jim Morrison was trying to do in the 60's with his poetry over music thing. Track 4 (Astromn Feck 4) really stands out, and almost matches "come on my selector" for hecticness. "love will tear us apart" had so much potential cheese factor, in theory, but to listen is another awesome experience altogether.
CD2 ("Alive in Japan") is even better, featuring tracks from Big Loada, Go Plastic, and Do You Know. After listening to the live cd I found listening to Go Plastic (personally, a dificult album to get into) a far more rewarding experience than I ever used to. Most hectic recording of SQP i have ever heard.
Amazing album from an amazing man. Buy It, party to it, and scream at everyone to "F***ing come on, Dance" at the most random hectic bits.
