  • Summary: Fog is 23-year-old turntablist Andrew Broder, and this is his debut album, a cut-and-paste mix of various sounds combined with guitar and vocals.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 11
  2. Negative: 0 out of 11
  1. It's Broder's careful balancing act between the traditional and the abnormal that makes his music so interesting.
  2. The Wire
    80
    This isn't really the future of HipHop, but as a fleeting reverie on its conflicted present, it makes for a fantastic detour. [#217, p.55]
  3. Mojo
    80
    Challenging and sometimes extraordinarily beautiful. [Mar 2002, p.108]
  4. The restless Broder can’t see the problem with shredding flavours as disparate as folk, rock, post-rock, the avant-garde, hip hop, electronica into a powerful, sometimes jarring, sometimes bewitching pulp, and neither should any music fan. Listen and free your mind from convention.
  5. Magnet
    70
    It isn't always pleasant, but it's always surprisingly pretty. [#54, p.88]
  6. Alternative Press
    60
    This disc contains some intriguing moments. [Apr 2002, p.74]
  7. Surprises are around every turn.
