5.0 out of 5 stars It just doesn't get any better...unless Amon Tobin does it., May 17, 2000
This review is from: Supermodified (Audio CD)
I've been absolutely overhyped about this release from Amon Tobin. If you've seen my reviews for his previous discs, you know what I'm talking about. Now to the point..."Supermodified" is Tobin at his most fudged up. If you're expecting another "Permutation" or "Bricolage," you ain't gonna get it here. However, Tobin does build upon the foundations of those two masterpieces. The jazz still informs a few tracks, but this is a completely different beast. "Get Your Snack On" bucks tradition (i.e. slow tune first) and sets it off with a fiery mid-tempo groove, and then Tobin hits us with "Four Ton Mantis," his best track since "People Like Frank." That is one heck of a stereophonic rush you're gonna get. I also like the absolutely THREATENING bass of "Golfer vrs Boxer" (I think he used a motorbike to produce that) and the redefinition of "jungle" music that is "Precursor" (which features Canadian beatboxer Quadraceptor). Also, "Slowly" ranks right up there with "Nova" as a signature Tobin slow tune. Those are highlights - but EVERY track on this will take you away, particularly "Keepin' It Steel (The Anvil Track)" and "Marine Machines." Not many people might know it, but Amon Tobin is one of the best - if not THE BEST - in this music arena. Do yourself a favour and pick up this album of the year (sorry, Kid Koala - but I still love ya).
