  • 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.
  6. 70
    A wonderfully challenging album like its three predecessors. [Oct 2002, p.98]
  7. 40
    There's little on OFOW that he hasn't done already. [Nov 2002, p.128]
