For just about every artist who has a signature style, and makes more than a few albums, a bit of repetition is inevitable. Sooner or later, they will return to familiar territory. That's the case in Squarepusher's latest, "Hello Everything," which sounds a lot like his earlier work from the late 1990s.

But surprisingly, it doesn't feel like he's been here before. Instead it feels like a nostalgic mishmash of sampling and bass, but with an exuberant feeling that wasn't there in his previous few albums. This is Tom Jenkinson in a fun mood, settling back into familiar beats.

It opens with the slightly wobbly, energetic beats of "Hello Meow," and meanders down a string of more upbeat melodies, using all sorts of weird samples and beats -- the sounds of buzzes, bubbles, sharp drum machines and woozy jazzy downtempo, all sounding very catchy in an offbeat way.

Things change dramatically in the middle -- there are a pair of unabashedly spacey songs, which sound a lot like the background music for a sci-fi film. Then Squarepusher reluctantly switches to a more grounded sound, with swooshy synth, sharp beats, and fast-paced electronic soundscapes, before endin with the weirdly soothing ten-minute "Orient Orange."

Anyone expecting "Hello Everything" to build on the sound of "Ultravisitor" is going to be VERY disappointed -- only one song on here, "The Modern Bass Guitar," sounds even vaguely like it. Instead, the music sounds much more like his earlier work like "Music is Rotted One Note" and "Selection Sixteen."

It may not be a new sound, but it fits Squarepusher like a comfortable old sweater. He seems to be dabbling in various styles that he enjoys, just because he enjoys them.

I just wanted to say that the idea of this record sounding "unmastered" to people is an unjust accusation. I believe Squarepusher is just consciously utilizing the full dynamic range of his music---the tracks are NOT unpolished and unmixed, but rather crescendoing, decrescendoing, etc. much like that of classical music.

This was also the case in Ultravisitor and perhaps others I haven't heard yet. I'll bet it just seems unmastered to a lot of people because there's hardly any electronic music like this where songs would go from a pianissimo to a triple forte and other such dynamic ranges. In lots of electronic music (excluding early academic stuff), especially ones with club-oriented roots, things stay at about the same volume level, or at least you never have to strain to hear the music.

So as a result, because of the range of volumes on this disc, it pretty much restricts you to a marginal volume setting. Otherwise some parts would be barely audible or others might be way too loud. Therefore, using this as background music is pretty much not an option. I can't play it in the car with my girlfriend because she gets frustrated that she can't talk to me during the loud parts. But then again when did anyone ever expect Squarepusher to function as background music? He always demands our full attention!

I love Squarepusher, and I've been anticipating this release for some time now. The good news is this is a great Squarepusher album. He seems to be back in late 90s form for the majority of the album. Several of the songs remind me of songs from Hard Normal Daddy, based more around jazz and early 90s techno than some of the later releases. Chances are that if your interested in Squarepusher already, you'll like this album.

The bonus cd was a disappointment for me. It's a 3 inch cd, with tracks Melt 1, Melt 3, Melt 4, Melt 5 and Melt 6. These appear to be variations of the song Vacuum Garden from the main disc. Normally I'm all for remixes, but these tracks bored me. The original is very spacy, with a slow build over the course of the song that never really goes anywhere. On the album it serves as a transition and doesn't feel out of place. On the bonue disc, however, this slow build only leads into another slow build with the slightest of variations. Maybe the differences would stand out a little more with repeated listens, but I don't foresee a time that I'll have the desire to play that disc again.

Unless you're a completist that just has to own the bonus disc, I'd advise to skip the limited edition and go for the standard version.

Yeah!!! Tommy J. is back and in full throttle effect with "hello Everything". Some have accused the pusher for retreading old ground and not breaking any new ground on this release. I say so what. This stuff is still fresh and a very welcome return--exiting as can be.

"Hello" can be viewed as Tommy's showcase album, much like the cover that adorns this release, the music is a display of the versatility and ability of one of the most amazing musicians of our time. This is his most accessable and highly listenable release, not to say that it's watered down in any way whatsoever. It's experimental in places but not as extreme as the awesome noise fest that was "Ultravisitor". The melodies are bright and popping here too, which is funny coming from a guy who, maybe five or so years ago said he was through with melody altogether in a magazine interview. Well, I'm sure glad that he changed his mind.

This album is a fine mix of the electonic and organic and proves that at Tommy J. is still a force to be dealt with, with over a decade of excellent releases (and lots of 'em) under his belt. So don't sleep on this fine and fantastic audio delight.
