    This record is to be listened to as a whole from start to finish. It's a long collage of different mixes and sounds. If your into mixing and the like it's good but if you like a good structured song then this is not for you. I'm sure some people think this album is great but I think the album is over rated in general. I'll give it credit in that it is original and tries to break some newThis record is to be listened to as a whole from start to finish. It's a long collage of different mixes and sounds.

I'm sure some people think this album is great but I think the album is over rated in general. I'll give it credit in that it is original and tries to break some new ground and considering it's over 10 years old, it still sounds very fresh and modern but the mashed together style doesn't appeal to me for a whole album.

  1. A charming, witty pastiche of mashed up samples, beats, bangs, and bobs.... Truly a breakthrough in the world of dance music.

    When the technique works, the results are exhilarating. [9 Nov 2001, p.111]
  3. There's little doubt to Since I Left You's status as one of the most intimate and emotional dance records that isn't vocal-based.
