As crate diggers go, few travel out there like Madlib. By pushing back sound barriers, the West Coast producer has forged his own critically-acclaimed niche, although whether the results make for consistent quality will probably depend on your state of mind (or the state of your stash). But whichever side of the fence you sit on - and you'll probably be on one or the other - Madlib has more in common with Frank Zappa than he'll ever have with P Diddy.
Quasimoto, who we were first introduced to on backpacker classic The Unseen, is essentially the producer's comic alter ego; a helium-voiced pipsqueak who stamped his own brand of Looney Tune madness over what many -mostly, goatee-bearded record shop employees - considered a highpoint of headnodding mixology.
But whereas The Unseen was fresh and endlessly inventive back in 2000, Further Adventures...comes across merely as half-baked. Frankly, it's a bit of a mess, and though there's plenty worth listening to musically, Quasi has precious little to say. Occasionally he's very funny ("Bullyshit") and occasionally he's sorely unfunny ("Bus Ride") but mostly he's delivering the sort of stoner rap that only a Beavis or Butthead could truly love. And at 27 tracks he really is spoiling us.
It's soon apparent that this is less an album than an extended skit. Ideas flicker aimlessly, like a goldfish on Ritalin, only to be punctuated by Melvin Van Peebles' rambling nonsense. By the time Madvillain finally makes an appearance on "Closer", the album's best track, it's far too little too late.
Ultimately, Quasimoto sounds like nothing more than a Mini-Me Eminem toking on Northern Lights. Aimless enough fun initially, but only coherent enough to produce something substantial about every twenty minutes or so. That's a strike rate of about three cuts over the course of an hour. The rest, however well-produced, sounds suspiciously like dicking about. --Adam Webb

The Unseen is arguably one of the best LP's of ALL TIME.
What we have now, is more of a follow-up to Madvillainy, which I hope is going to mean that sales of this will be rather good.
The problem though, is that as with Madvillainy, we have twenty-something 'tracks' filled with movie samples, noises and annoyances. The 'music' factor is reduced to an unfortunate minimum. Lots of start-stopping type tracks only serve to p*ss you off after one or two listens. Anyone thats heard Chippin' will surely agree with this sentiment.
Whereas the Unseen was a musical kaleidascope of some beautiful crate-digging, this just seems like a bit of a mess, thrown together to give us a sequel to our favourite album.
I won't list track by track reviews, I've only heard this LP twice, but its enough to form this opinion.
I'm sure you could have done better Mr. Lib.
'Bartender Say' is the highlight for me; 'Greenery', 'The Exclusive' and pretty much anything from the last quarter of the album also stand out. The only slight disappointment is a murky, out-of-place DOOM on 'Closer', who perhaps should have been kept separate from the Quasimoto project.
Once again, Madlib proves that no matter what alias or project, his presence is a mark of something interesting and of the highest quality. Highly recommended.
