Is it all just a big mess?
on 27 May 2003
Is this album just a mess? I don't think it is the cohesive, quality album it could have been.
The first track with its drum & bass style, slickly produced beats is good. But not outstanding. Track 2, I struggle to understand. It doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the album- this track is virtually impossible to place into a genre, all I can say is that it is quirky.
From there on, the album continues into slick, downtempo, beats. "Half Man Half Granary Thorax" I like very much- very chilled out and mellow. This flow continues through the album. But I believe there are some weak tracks being "Wavy Gravy" and "On Yer Haunches". These tend to spoil the feel of the album- they just don't seem to fit in well.
Overall, a relatively classy act. But, compared to other artists in my collection it doesn't stand out.
