The first installment of Fear and Loathing launched straight into a full on techno assault, it made my brain scream the words "I HAVE MUCH CRY!". While this initially terrified me I found that the second CD in the package was a very tasty bass led journey through electronic house & techno. The downer about this was that I was left feeling that I had but 50% use out of the package due to my eardrums primal fear of the initial CD.
Now I didn't let this put me off the Luke Slater mix experience, hence I find myself here reviewing the 2nd in the Fear and Loathing series. I had good vibes about this mix anyway just from looking at the track listing. Plenty of good tracks and artists that I already knew and loved; Bola, Brothomstates, Nathan Fake, James Holden, Throbbing Gristle ... the initial signs were good. From the moment I stuck this mix on I knew that it was a much better structured mix than the previous installment. The first CD leads you via soothing ambience and some top moments in electronic house ... gently building you up for the 2nd CDs tech house moments. By the time we hit full swing techno at the end of the mix, I'm all nicely warmed up and loving it. Much more fun than being slammed straight into the old saucepan banging that Fear and Loathing 1 introduced you to!
Now if I can level a criticism at the mix its at the mixing displayed. It appears to be a cross between live mixing and digital editing. Fades between the tracks include all bumps, scrapes and slips expected with live mixing ... those who are of the pro-tools generation may wrinkle their nose at this. Also, it appears that there is some post mix editing since things like A Break In The Clouds breakdown being shortened and Matala Bobo's ending being rearranged are obvious to people who know the tracks in pre-mix form.

This is a great mix from Luke Slater. Proper techno, some great tunes on here. Its quite old now, but still sounds fresh.

3.0 out of 5 stars Patchy 9 May 2006
By JonnyB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What a shame. I own Freek Funk and worship that album, so thought Luke should be able to do better than this. It's praised for being "varied". I'd call it patchy at best, more like sparse. CD1 is only worth it for the last 5 minutes, which are incredible. CD2 starts off promisingly, slumps, has an amazing tune and then gets totally mindless, headachy pots and pans too close to your ears until another fine recovery in the last few tracks. Not worth bothering with unless you could sit through the likes of Hard House Update without getting a headache.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of innovative techno 23 Mar. 2005
By Brenden Steltz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great two disc set of some of the finest electronic music I've heard in years. I'm particulary fond of the Throbbing Gristle remix and the track by Chris McCormack. The Chris McCormack track nearly blew my mind the first time I heard it. Then it nearly blew my mind the next 20 times I heard it. It all fits nicely in a diverse, thoughtful, and surprising mix. As a long-time fan of electronic music I highly recommend this collection.
