Ape Sounds is the debut LP from Japan's Nigo, best known for his clothing label Bathing Ape--a cult product dripping with "Planet of The Apes" motifs and celebrated status as a hyper-cool brand. Not a regular musician, Nigo performs an art director's role (although he plays drums) on the album--guiding a creative team of Lavelle, DJ Kudo, Money Mark, Ben Lee, Cornelius and Takagi Ken (Major Force). The result is (at times) a self-consciously cool mix of punk, trip hop and knowing adult pop. Some of it's fun--"Kung Fu Fighting" combines laconic Japanese rap with a neatly orchestrated remake of a Bruce Lee soundtrack. Ben Lee's contribution "Free Diving" is breathlessly fantastic--a wry and urbane vocal walking smoothly over an explosive, pop-rock thrashout. Also good is "The Very Urgent Dub" where Money Mark brings sass to a Pablo and Maurizio referencing stoner anthem. Some cuts feel vague but whatever Nigo lacks in expression he more than compensates for with style.--Tony Marcus

Format: Audio CD
When I first listened to this Album, I thought great another let down. I left it for thirty mins or so and tried it again. This time it was different. From the subliminally catchy Simple song that one just cant help singing along to, to the deeply moody bass on monster. Freediving is just a brillant original track Too much's beautiful female voice is hypnotising Along then come a track reminiscent of the Sex Pistols. The scratch perverts do a wicked job on March of the general, even if you do not like hip hop, you'll like this. This Album has great Longevity, hey it's even got some samples from Planet of the Apes, and you can't go wrong there.

WOW, this album is a must have. It is so laid back but yet loud, and since its on the Mo Wax lable you just know its good. I like this because it is something i can listen to anytime of the day or night, with big beats and mellow sound. Real nice, this is the music you want to listen to on the train from your way into work and back from Dublin City (you would understand if your from dublin).
A real Must have. buy it

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool over Content 9 Nov. 2000
By Sainty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first review has hit the nail on the head. By using the same style, imagery and packaging, this looks like the next installment in the UNKLE project. Unfortunately for Shadow/Lavelle fans only 'March of the General' stands out (and it stands out a mile with a great use of Planet of the Apes samples). This is by no means a poor album - I would describe it as 'interesting'. It has added something to my record collection, but i need a few more listens to figure out what.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Bathing Ape really has no clothes 23 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the debut album by Nigo, the Japanese hip-hop producer who brought us UNKLE's "Ape Shall Never Kill Ape".He holds the title of "the Bathing Ape" and is responsible for the super-trendy Bathing Ape clothing designs. These are mostly t-shirts with the face of Cornelious or Dr. Zaius packaged in faux-graffiti style spray-pain can containers. the Bathing Ape fashions fly off the shelfs in specialty stores around the world. These shirts and the cans they come in are designed with input by legendary graffiti artists like Futura 2000 and Stash. Ape Sounds is packaged in a fold-out mini-LP case with familiar bathing ape art by Nigo and Futura 2000.
This album sounds like it was made by a musician who wants you to notice his outfit. Most of the songs here are low quality rock and roll with lame lyrics sung in either bad english or with endless repetition. "A Simple Song" has Money Mark singing the title over and over. Other tracks have Kan Takagi or Ben Lee on vocals with the same results. The standout track is "March of the General" which has James Lavelle(UNKLE) and the Scratch Perverts creating mayhem over some awesome hip-hop beats and plenty of Planet of the Apes samples.
This album's strong points are its great packaging and "March of the General". However, the lack of another good song makes it a two-star album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, diverse, and completely worthy. 12 Feb. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I might be biased since I received this for a gift, but I found this CD pretty damn cool. Unusual Ben Lee track and Julia Ferreira who I hadn't heard before. It's definitely a CD for people who like to be kept guessing "what's next?"
I'm not sure I'd pay full price for it, but worth a listen. Creative packaging [hey, I'm a designer].
4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and powerful 3 Oct. 2000
By Deborah Brandt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ape Sounds by Nigo reflects their diverse talent. Each cut is distinct from the next. Powerful and tight, with lots of energy and direction. Intricate and captivating, the subtleties in the background capture your attention and make you wonder what's next.
