this album is a master piece, this is not hip hop (i dont think) it is one of a kind. but this is the most relaxing cd i've ever bought and the tracks are fantastically composed. at first i wasn't that pelase with it becasue it wasnt what i expected, but this cd is brilliant. truely one to remember. the crow is a prime example of the proffessional composition. if you feel like something very different, slightly funny and not completely beat based you'll love this.

The first half of this album consists of listenable but unremarkable jazz breaks (although it does contain Ken Nordine's highly distinctive voice which, for fans, is a must). However, the second half of the album descends into dark, highly atmospheric trip hop which reflects much of the work put out by Food since. If you like "The shape of things that hum" and similar releases, check this out.

This album is a stunning collection of jazz-tinged psychedelic hip-hop beat stylings, which completely fails to disappoint at any stage. "Break" is particularly fluorescently delightful, and "The Crow..." is as awe-inspiring as it is mysterious. Splendid.

Just couldn't get into this album at all. Other albums have been fantastic but this was just a bit 'nothing' to the point where it will soon be arriving in a charity shop near you!!

awesome cd takes u on a little journey, and a very pleasant if not slightly strange one at that.

not for mainstream listeners but if u have the ear for it this will be food for thought.

i love some of the tracks on here, and they seem to all awaken various senses, i think track 5 is just great.. the guys voice is just cool and the story he tells is intrigueing, on my top 5 list best dj food album i have heard.

The naff title and artwork may already have alerted you to the fact that this is a real curate's egg. Matt and Jonathan should have kept a tighter rein on their proteges who seem to have had half an eye on promoting their talents for potential film offers instead of really delivering. Too frequently, you find yourself wallowing in cheese in the form of cringeworthy gimmicks (tracks 3,4 and 5 are to be avoided) or cinematic light-jazz orchestral swathes reminiscent of incidental music from the 60s. The best tracks are close to the Coldcut standard, however, with carefully woven samples building a fascinating aural landscape. It's only right that DJ Food should develop beyond the functional tool it once was and the team forge their own musical identity. They haven't quite found it yet but tracks like 'Full Bleed,' 'The Crow' and 'Nevermore' represent a more focused 'Kaleidoscope' and point to a potentially bright future if they don't keep looking over their shoulders.
