Great stuff. Anyone who bought Holmes excellent compilation 'Come Get It I Got It' already has a fairly good idea of what to expect, as several of the tunes were partially used there: large slabs of cyberfunk laced with soul, funk and jazz influences. It's obvious that he's chosen his collaborators well - Revron is a great MC with a boggly eyed 'rubber wallpaper and back-to front jacket' style (Don't Rhyme No Mo, Free Ass OC8)and Petra has a delicious loungecore voice that drips from your speakers ('Wooden Heart', '...Broom'). The backing music is superb - previous Holmes efforts established a groove and ploughed it (albeit brilliantly - Gritty Shaker, 69 Police) for 6 minutes, but here the music has evolved further and is more richly layered and textured. And its funky as hell...far funkier than 'Exit Sign'. All in all its further evidence to justify Alan McGees call for Holmes to be knighted for services to music.
