Tom Jenkinson is an awesome bass player. Really. You get to hear that much more in this album. There's something potentially very pretentious about "the aura" of Squarepusher, but this is just great music that'll inevitably - and rightly - forward the way people think about music, and what actually constitutes music.
Anyone into electronica will already know of him, but this is music for anyone who likes their stuff progressive, intelligent and interesting. And, ultimately, good.
If you see or hear anyone talking about the "audible agony of his sonic experimentation" or "the philosophically angular notes of his modular symbiosis", etc etc, wallop the person with the business end of a bass guitar, spit, then have a listen with a cup of tea and a cigarette. Great fun.
