  • Summary: Tom Jenkinson's latest full-length attempts to incorporate more of his live sound into the overall feel.

  1. The middle of the album is as hard-edged and relentless as anything of Squarepusher's, if not more.
  2. 80
    This is like saddling up with a fearless, interdimensional astronaut; fasten your seat belts.
  3. Ultravisitor appears to be the first album when jazz can completely mesh with Squarepusher’s canonized style.
  4. Ultravisitor feels like another work in progress, another messy, powerful, occasionally remarkable, sometimes infuriating attempt to create a true, detailed, authentically multifaceted musical autobiography. [#241, p.52]
  5. The stylistic seesaw between hyperactivity and placidity is almost too much to bear -- and will surely frighten the pets -- but that may be the point.
  6. Though it might be a difficult listen in spots (especially for the rave-ier set), the disc definitely shows Jenkinson stretching his musical limbs, and it's a fascinating sight.
  7. A difficult, flawed record that’s predictably too long, making the highs all the more rewarding.
