  • Summary: This is the fourth album for the London-based, Brazilian-born jungle/breakbeat producer and DJ, following 2000's well-received 'Supermodified.'

  1. The focus on a single mood occasionally threatens to lead only to a creative dead-end, but Out from Out Where arguably betters its successors by coming together as a single work.
  2. Tobin's definitely out to have some fun with this record, though the immense density of these soundscapes prevent them from being reduced to chop-shop filler.
  3. He's constantly finding new ways to micro-manage rhythm without losing the beat. [Listen 2 This supplement, 11/2002, p.15]
  4. Probably his most varied release yet.
  5. The album maintains a consistency that was sorely lacking on Amon Tobin’s previous records. However, in doing so, the album sacrifices the innovation and uncontrolled experimentalism one expects from Tobin.

    Admittedly, the album drags in parts, but Out Where is still a success. [Oct 2002, p.88]

    There's little on OFOW that he hasn't done already. [Nov 2002, p.128]

    the sounds are so intense. the mix of subtle melodic lines blended wih split drum hits everywhere just makes you want to go crazy. All the sounds are so intense. the mix of subtle melodic lines blended wih split drum hits everywhere just makes you want to go crazy. All tension and building within this album is worth it alone! In this new he even leaves hyper drumming once and a while and insert them with baked up synth sounds that move sooooo good. highly suggested! check his other albums Expand

    This is without doubt his best work. He has done an axcellent job of using sub-bass sounds to give it a feel almost as much as a sound.
