If I had the time and resources to make a film, Making Bones would be its soundtrack.
Ryan C. Daley
I have listened to this CD probably almost every day for the past 6 months, and I am yet to tire of it.

There are no filler tracks what so ever and each and every track is fantastic in its own cool way.

This is one of the most soulful acid jazz abbums i have ever heard. Simply fantastic. These british boys surely know their way around electronic as well as organic instruments. The lady's voice on "image of you" and "seeing red" is simply to die for. Excillent live sounding sets that give the entire album a very retro feel are intricately fused in with elements of D&B and Hip Hop. There are no filler tracks what so ever and each and every track is fantastic in its own cool way. There is one track that is absolutely fabulus.."Suckerpunch"..wow...i dont what its about this one but its a rockin toe tappin groove that will hit you in the face and you wont even know it. Production is fantistic..these guys are just great musicians and i am definately gonna check out their other stuff. The overall feel of the album is very raw and hedonistic and yet totally smooth.

I purchased this disc on a pure whim. Unlike my friend who was irish, this band is from England. However, there are several similarities. Both are well packaged, spirited, somewhat funky, and know how to get a groove on. while I am not fond of rap, I found the addition of MC DET to be a nice touch. With the exception of the first track, his rap is more subdued and he isn't rapping about murder, rape or other acts of violence. If there's a downside its the inclusion and possible over use of electronics which, at times, sounds a little dated. Buy it and dance the night away.

If I had the time and resources to make a film, Making Bones would be its soundtrack. Listening to this album and you find yourself within the inner ear of an encyclopedia of inspiration-its sources and results. Making Bones is jazzed up with improvised and inherent energy and yet so undertoned and nuanced by the gods of chill that you can listen to it while waking or sleeping. It is a bellicose album for the passive, the peaceful search for meaning in chaos and deconstruction. Amongst the sounds of bass, guitar, horns, drugs and the minimalist use of samples, these label-dodgers, artful in their undertaking, reproduce the sound of electronic music on live instruments and take the listener past so many different styles-- so many stories-- the majority of which are pure instrumental.
You never miss a voice.
I'd opt for this as a soundtrack, my choice for an album for the next century.

This was the CD that introduced me to the trip-hop/acid jazz genre, which I'm now into very heavily. The soulful singing of David on many of the tracks gives it a more Portishead-y feel, while the amazing rap on other tracks brings in a Tricky-esque element. This is a great CD for listeners who like the blend of jazz and techno/electronica roots of trip-hop. It is Red Snapper's most middle ground CD, as it was preceeded by more jazzy, instrumental tracks, and followed by an almost completely electronic one. I have listened to this CD probably almost every day for the past 6 months, and I am yet to tire of it.

Move over Blue Lines, Dummy, and Maxinquaye, you have company in the Trip Hop Album Hall of Fame. Making Bones is jazz-ier and drum 'n bassier than its brethren. The bass and drum loops are heavy, sharp, and striking. MC Det (MC-ing on 3 tracks)and Allison David (crooning achingly on 2 others) seem born for this style of music. All together, the atmosphere is smooth, brooding, and dynamic.

The things that are done on this album are incredible. That's straight up. What is even more increble than that is the music is performed in the most honest way. Live baby! It is hard to imagine it with the first listen that a drummer can play that fast, that consistantly. It's got to be a DJ spinning some phat beats right? The beats are for real and the jazz influences are blatant. Medeski, Martin, & Wood fans be on the look out. Jazzy drum n' bass has been taken to a whole new level and Red Snapper is to be given props for it.

When listening to this album you find yourself within the inner ear of an encyclopedia of inspiration-its sources and results. Making Bones is jazzed up with improvised and inherent energy and yet so undertoned and nuanced by the gods of chill that you might either listen to it while boxing or composing, waking or sleeping. It is a bellicose album for the passive, the peaceful search for meaning in chaos and deconstruction. Amongst the sounds of bass, guitar, horns, drums and the minimalist use of samples, these label-dodgers, artful in their undertaking, reproduce the sound of electronic music on live instruments and take the listener past so many different styles-- so many stories-- the majority of which are pure instrumental.

I'll have to admit that I'm not at all a huge fan of rap, so the tracks that are dominated by MC Det's vocals are hard to stomach for me [#1,6,9]. I like the music to "The Sleepless," but when he starts singing, I change the tracks. "Crease" is creepy techno song that'll get your head bouncing. "Image of You" and "Seeing Red" are superb due to Allison David's beautful voice. "Spitalfields," "Bogeyman," and "The Tunnel" are all great songs too. For all trip-hop fans, especially Tricky fans, this album is for you.
