This is one of those albums which everyone should be given a copy of at birth; my introduction to the world of Tobin which jointly with his other albums occupy my all-time favourite albums (defeating the two year reign of Massive Attack's Mezzanine!) is perhaps an insight into the dark depths of Tobin's mind. The mood is sinistre pretty much throughout whilst the tempo changes from tranquil (Slowly) to frantic (Boxer vs Golfer). Although all his stuff is fairly genre-evasive, Supermodified is certainly less drum'n'bass-y than his previous efforts; and as the title suggests, the production is heavier, thicker, which gives the music the atmospheric, brooding sound. I think I marginally prefer his other albums to this one but it all depends on mood; Permutations is probably the most accessible and a recommended starting place. But whatever you decide, definately try one of his albums they are all incredible - so original and yet kind of intuitive in that, particularly with Supermodified, you can really relate to them where other electronic music lacks that human edge. My personal favourites are Deo, Slowly and Rhino Jockey. By the way has anyone heard "Adventures In Foam" under Tobin's Cujo alias? Oh and one more thing, play this on loop all night and through dreams or that state of half-sleep/half-awake you'll have the strangest thoughts, trippy or what?!

This guy is seriously cool, and incredibly talented.
As has been said numerous times already, Amon Tobin's music cannot be easily pigeon-holed into a particular genre. As a guide, just realise that Tobin is the biggest selling Ninja Tune artist. Given that, you will know to expect top-quality beats.
Part Drum & Bass, part breakbeat, part hip-hop beats, and always catchy, Supermodified has a bit of everything. This album, more than any of his others (except "Chaos Theory") really creates that oft described "cinematic" atmosphere. You can't listen to 'Four Ton Mantis' and it's steady build to crescendo without imaging it being the title track to some hi-tech thriller movie. The experience is recreated in many of the other tracks, such as 'Rhino Jockey'.
'Deo' is another standout track. Try listening to this slow-tempo number without waiting in anticipation for the chime-esque effect that occurs every so often during it. It's just brilliant.
'Slowly' again shows that Tobin can slow things down from his often break-neck speed beats. Cool jazz and some fresh beats has never sounded so good.
In conclusion: Perfect, absolutely perfect. Chill-out to it, get psyched-up by it, do anything with it on. It's just brilliant.

This remains the definitive recording of the sweet beat. Better focussed than Permutation and Bricolage and, in intensity, streets ahead of those who've recorded any work since. Aching and longing and soaring spirituality combine in a performance that will stand forever as one of the all-time greats. The sweetness manages to live quite happily in this exalted company as Amon makes a comparitively unscary composition into something that terrifies even the ear and lodges in the memory. The recorded sound needs no allowances made for its ambiguity. A recording to treasure and play for ever. It should be in every collection!

After buying the album for no other reason that I was attracted to the cover, I couldn't believe it when it also turned out to be one of the most versatile albums I own. With it's dark beats and mood it is definitly music for creating ambience. Tobin pushes the boundries of genre, by creating what can only be described as a classical-electro style. Taking you through a ride of throught provoking tracks right from the start. For people looking for something different then this is for them. A worth while addition to any record collection. Only down side is that it does take a few listens to truely appreciate how good it actually is.

Amon Tobin knows how to blend electronica and Jazz. One of Ninja Tune's most famous children strikes directly in our brains with these dark underground jazz sounds floating on subliminal electronic echoes and creating a melancholic ambience... if you liked his previous work, this one will amaze you!
