  • Summary: The Scottish electronic artist releases his debut full-length album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 9 out of 9
  2. Mixed: 0 out of 9
  3. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. His debut album is a brilliantly inventive collision of '80s golden-era hip-hop, Aphex Twin-style beats and pop melodies that wouldn't be out of place on an OutKast record. [Nov 2009, p.107]
  2. Sometimes needlessly complex and, at its worst, goofy for the sake of being goofy--proper boots-in-a-dryer bizniz with shrill flotsam swirling about--these tracks can be as off-putting as they are exhilarating.
  3. Hudson Mohawke, whose debut album contrives to be both idiosyncratic and soulful. The spirits of OutKast and Prince loom large, and, along with most of the albums here, it crackles with imagination.
  4. More than his emerging pop craft, what Birchard infuses his debut album with is a sense of fun and excitement.
  5. There’s a lot more going on besides, maybe a touchstone too much at times, but you’d have to have either incredibly specific or incredibly boring taste to not find some gold herein.
  6. If you're in the wrong mood it can be a touch wearing by the end, but more often than not this is 21st century funk gone right.
  7. Hudson can definitely do tweaked, but he has work to do before being transcendent.
