  • Summary: Why yes, yes we do. His real name is Tom Jenkinson, he dabbles in experimental electronica (a la Aphex Twin, who signed him to his first record deal), and this is his sixth album. Included among the seven new tracks here (totaling just 35 minutes) is an unexpected cover of Joy Division'sWhy yes, yes we do.

    Iconoclastic and visceral, Squarepusher is punk rock 2002. [Nov 2002, p.132]
  2. His most diverse collection of songs to date.

    Fans of Squarepusher's trademark schizophrenic d'n'b beats will enjoy the title cut.... Other tracks completely disintegrate into severe experimentalism, changing from music to art-sound installations. [Oct 2002, p.81]

    Rather good fun. [Nov 2002, p.116]
  5. Though the focus on range and experimentation is fascinating for those who've already heard Squarepusher doing the standard drill'n'bass rigamarole, the randomness evident on productions like "Kill Robok" makes the LP about as infectious as a surgical bandage.
  6. 60
    Somewhat of a Squarepusher overview: digitally diced, partially digested, and sometimes brutally regurgitated, of course.
