    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

    bought the album today.. woah! some critics say that amon must have had a bad day when writing this album (because of the melancholic style).. damn. he's had the best days ever when producing this awesome album. can't find that kind of stuff anywhere else. amon plays his own game! excellent!

    outrageous lp. much darker and demanding that its predecessors. amon keeps on evolving and is now in the league of his own. the ultimate electronica album of tha year. dont believe the critics, cause they sniff their yesterdays heroes - amon is the man of the past, present and foremost of tha future.

    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.

    Excellent album. Great follow up. More than worth the price of admission.

  1. Like listening to DJ Shadow after vast amounts of Angel Dust, 'Out Of Nowhere' is a sonic Hall Of Mirrors that bulges and bristles with restless inventiveness and illustrates an impressive attention to detail.

    Taking sound collage to seamless, organic perfection, Tobin arranges his samples like he's conducting a living orchestra. [#11, p.144]
  3. 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.
