    This is a disc with massive high points and few low moments.

    It takes a lot of talent to make crate-digging sound so seamless, and even if the cracks show every once in a while, Planet High School is some of the best patchwork around.

    Despite the occasional sonic overload, Planet High School is a solid album and clearly a step in the right direction for Mux Mool.

    Planet High School is obviously not perfect, nor should it be, but it is a step upwards and onwards for Mux Mool.

    The album's ten dirty bass, hydraulically placed rhythms come off like a more focused, implicit version of the Minnesota-born laptopper's previous work.

    So maybe Mux Mool can't literally do everything--but for the bulk of Planet High School, he's got himself an engaging something.

    Mux Mool has managed to produce another album as solid as it is thwarted by its limitations.
