This is receiving a drubbing from certain sections - it's no Endtroducing!

It's still run on hiphop beats and there are plenty of samples, but he's used his own synths to come up with something that's quite 'experimental' on first listen. Arrangements are sprawling, so it's going to disappoint people who prefer their stuff cleaner - probably best to listen before you buy if unsure.

Fans of OG Shadow should be happy with the rap tracks, 'The Sideshow' (with Ernie Fresh) in particular, which has a 45King-stylee sax sample in its middle. Another early highlight is 'Bergschrund' (with Nils Frahm) - I'm getting an AlternativeLightSource vibe from it, together with hints of (*shudder*) dubstep. It's much better than that might sound. No Sleaford Mods harmed the making of this record.

Either way, people with subwoofers should be happy as it's a booming production. Definitely one to be going through repeatedly, as it's not a particularly immediate record. I already like it, so **** from me.

CD is a three-panel card sleeve, with an ickle booklet and some childish ephemera (mountain sticker; press-out card man-with-crown).

He's on the UK/Euro circuit from July if you fancy catching him live.

PS. Check links below for upcoming glitchy nonsense!

>>> If this release leaves you with a hankering for oldschool breaks, try the two recent KDef&45King collaborations. Vol1 is gorgeous!

I you were mad keen on infographics you could try to represent DJ Shadow’s repertoire in the form of a Venn diagram. You could draw circles for hip-hop, dance, rock and electronica, among others, and have hours of fun seeing how these circles overlap (pre- and post-Unkle, for example), which combinations have been most successful and whether there is anything that sits right in the middle. If I had done that (which I haven’t), the bit of the Venn diagram that would interest me most would be an overlap between hip-hop and electronica, and that’s essentially what we have in The Mountain Will Fall. People who prefer other areas of that diagram might well be less pleased. Not only that, but this is hip-hop in a full breadth of interpretations. More traditional vocal-led hip-hop forms (Nobody Speak, The Sideshow) mix with ambient tunes (the title track, the menacing Depth Charge, the gentle jazzy Ashes to Oceans) and leftfield, glitchy, lo-fi etchings (Three Ralphs, Bergschrund, Mambo, the ’lumpy‘ California), as well as others that are somewhat in between styles (Pitter Patter, Suicide Pact) or that manage to be all styles at once (Ghost Town). Stick that in your diagram … somewhere? Even though it is too varied to come across as a consistent piece of work, it’s still a terrific album, especially if you can put aside any expectations from previous work that might ‘inform’ your enjoyment, and instead bring a new set of ears to something that is both an essence of hip-hop and seriously experimental. Whether it’s a step out or a step forward is debatable.

Well, its not too bad, needs a few listens but has some heavy beats that progress through the tracks ie i love the last minute or so of Californa. Lacks the magic of his best work

Dj Shadow has something about him that exudes originality. This album , whilst not a classic , is still really good. The title track is really engaging and energising and Nobody speak is such an original track with a great sample running through it. Bergschrund is amazing and is beautifully engineered synths and beats. It is pure genius and I challenge anyone with an ear for ambient/ techno music not to like it. Ghost town and suicide pact are also great tracks. They are dark and haunting but take you on a musical adventure and get you sitting up and listening. Buy this album !

‘The Mountain Will Fall’ is the sixth album by DJ Shadow. 2002’s ‘The Private Press’ is the last album that many of his fans feel lives up to his genre-defining combination of hip hop and electronic dance music, 1996’s ‘Endtroducing’. The album starts with a lush instrumental, which temporarily suggests he’s going in a strange direction. When the beats, beeps and scratches come in, it’s clear that he was tricking us. Overall ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ showcases its best tracks in the first half. His collaboration (‘Bergschrund’) is stunning. ‘The Sideshow’ and ‘Ghost Town’, with its downbeat, Trent Reznor-esque piano breakdown halfway through, are other highlights. ‘Three Ralphs’, with its hip hop and movie samples (“ready to die”), breaks down into spaced out electronic dance music. ‘Depth Charge’ starts with a harsh guitar before assorted beats and eerie sounds (air raid sirens, church bells, piano, voices) accentuate the aggressiveness of the mix. Unfortunately ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ drops in quality after ‘Mambo’ before the aforementioned ‘Ghost Town’ and ‘Suicide Pact’ close the album. After inspiring many people with genre-defining exploits, DJ Shadow sizes up against his modern contemporaries on ‘The Mountain Will Fall’

Lovely collection of tracks that feel a bit like a mixtape. No new ground covered as such- but thoroughly entertaining and refreshing to see a broad range of influences and passions from this US boy.
