TimCDec 24, 2006An altogether solid album with at least a couple amazing tracks. It's one of the better albums of the year.
AlexADec 2, 2006Interesting but soulless stuff. "Ultravisitor" was far much better.
RMOct 25, 2006For some reason this Squarepusher album gets a lot of criticism for not being original. But to be honest I cannot think of any other Squarepusher release that sounds like this (no tracks like Hello Meow, Vacuum Garden for instance). Obviously there are a few things which make Squarepusher Squarepusher, but it seems that a lot of the ranting is about how accessible this album is. And yet when he does release an experimental album like Ultravisitor, that received criticism from some for being too experimental. I think it was the right decision to make a friendly album after mainly experimenting from 1998's Music Is Rotted One Note (I won't mention the poor Selection Sixteen) because, as much as I have enjoyed his work, it is important I think to remind people why we liked Squarepusher in the first place. As for the album itself, I think all of the tracks are of a pretty high standard, with some better than others depending on perosnal preference. It is actually a consistent album and it is a pity that it is criticised because of its concept rather than content. He can do something new on his next album - give him a break and just enjoy the album (I like the Guardians attitude).… Full Review »
