MojoWith The Private Press DJ Shadow ups even his own considerable ante. [May 2002, p.96]
Alternative PressIt was probably inevitable, but having raised the bar so high for cut-and-paste music, Shadow spends a little too long here looking up at it. [Jul 2002, p.96]

It may never be as great as "Endtroducing", but it still blew me away. His talent to sample music from other artists and make them his own is amazing. He flawlessly creates beautiful songs that flow together wonderfully in this album. The songs that I would recommend are "Fixed Income", "Giving Up The Ghost", "Six Days", "Mogrel...Meets His Maker", Right Thing/GDMFSOB", and "You Can't Go Home Again". Get up from your computer, run down to the the nearest music store, and buy this album!… Expand

You won't be dissapointed.… Expand

BobS.Jun 3, 2002Not quite as good as Entroducing, very worthy follow up considering the album it is following up though.
NobleL.Aug 23, 2002Just what I expected from Shadow ... the unexpected - 'You can't go home again' will be on my playlist for years to come.

I'd like to say that I You can hear him trying to "move on" to the next thing when really what everyone wants to hear is the same old. I'd like to say that I felt differently but my vibe has not changed to match his. Maybe that's what makes him a great artist? Or maybe the reaching just sounds pretentious. This really could be a Moby or Fatboy Slim album.… Expand
