Customer Review

on 8 March 2004
Ultravisitor seems like tom jenkinson's attempt to lift himself above the title of 'electronic producer' to the ranks of a truly great and classic musician/composer. The comparison to Sun Ra, Miles Davis and John Cage is not undeserving. his bass improv is incredible: he gets into quite a lot of it. his compositions are musically very complex, his skill at his instrument(s) is phenominal. melodically, this album is great. as usual the programming is amazing.
this album is sort of like music is rotted one note, in the fact that it has a strong live aspect. there is crowd noise sprinkled throughout the whole album, and it plays like one long show. at one point in the very punk-ish 'steinbolt', i forgot i was listening to a 'studio' album. it sounds like tom in concert.
one thing that's interesting about 'ultravisitor' is the fact that he seems to draw from the entire squarepusher catalogue, using samples from tracks 'exploding psychology' and 'come on my selector.' in the track '50 cycles' one wonders if tom is recreating, or sampling a bit from, 'f-train.' in any case, the vocal manipulation is similar.
more mellow, yet more harsh, than other squarepusher releases, and more grounded in technical musical composition/performance, this is a great overall album. it's very moody as well. one song is a gentle lament, the next is an intense breakneck punk'n'bass track. wow. squarepusher.
