  1. 80
    [A] brilliantly arranged debut album. [Oct 2005, p.84]
  2. Unfortunately, the record fails at times to live up to its largesse.
  3. 60
    There is far too much going on at times. [Oct 2005, p.96]
  4. 60
    By turns, it's both sublime and downright ridiculous. [Oct 2005, p.116]
  5. Jackson’s debut album is not always a success, as Smash’s panoptic detail eventually turns homogeneous.

    One of the best albums i've ever heard. Rich and tasty, flavour of trance, a bit of pop as well.. Fresh 'n nu. Everything else is bullshit

    I fell inlove with this album. Jackson and his computer are now one of my favourite artists.

    i read an article on him the other day where he said something to the tune of "i make music that matches with what's in my gut," and this visceral slab of dirty design is just that. not to mention a wonderfully crafted, visually engaging, and bizaarely sexual record to boot. top 5 of 05. Expand

    Dark, glitchy microhouse in the vein of Akufen. Warp Records finds another prodigy.

    I'm fixed. Looking backwards, this sounds like Justice,... FRESH!
