    Don't hesitate to buy this amazing DJ Shadow album. 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

    By using his hip-hop chops to express some next school emotions, Shadow comes up with something that doesn't just sound new, it feels new. [Jun 2002, p.86]

    This is much more than the usual retro-action.... DJ Shadow remains elusive to the end. [Jun 2002, p.127]
  3. The depth of his production sense and the breadth of his stylistic palette prove just as astonishing the second time out.
