This is the kind of album that makes me want to punch the creator in the face. In an entirely good way, to be sure. This album shouldn't be possible, it's unnaturally good. Amon Tobin must have signed a deal with the devil. Insane (...).
It has all the precision and mutations of it's Warp cousins of the time, but damn this man's taste in grooves. Such technical music shouldn't make me want to dance this much. I've heard few artists with such skill at manipulating drum lines who can also have such skill with an instrumental track. Portishead and Aphex Twin were probably cleaning their drawers from "Like Regular Chickens" alone. Blood stains and back alley mayhem. Asskicking has rarely been this cerebral. And it unfolds, one twist after another. For 70 minutes of debauchery and technology. Along with Squarepusher, some of the most intense music ever recorded. I'm not lying either. Even the heaviest of metal is overload. It's dulling. Yeah, you can hammer your guitar and drums hard. Great. It sounds like crap. Seriously. Technical, yeah, but apply it with finesse. Most drum/drill and bass, jungle, and hardcore techno will scientifically make you retarded. Yeah, the beat's hard, but it's a 3 second loop repeated for 4 minutes. My 13 year old cousin can do that with Hammerhead. But, back to the CD. "Reanimator" is insane. F*cking belligerently insane. HARD. Yeah, the twinkly noises at the beginning are cute, but yeah, this track will beat you the hell up. Relentless.Read more ›
"Why are there people like Frank?"
Loads of listeners called in to ask about the album; Tobin makes jazz listeners of the 90's very very proud. He puts Blakey on speed and produces physcially impossible drumming solos that bop-lovers only've wet dreams about. Tunes're melodic, if not too catchy. It's consistently tasty throughout.
Although I'm a complete novice in electronic music, after listening to this, I found myself growing impatient with Plug and Photek's repetitiveness.
If you like jazz drums, are open-minded, and think -- as i used to -- that all electronic music has thumping uninspiring beats, give this candy a try.

Amazing is right (this may be the first time I use this adjective). It's hard to believe that amazing music like this comes from the electronic genre. Read morePublished on February 1, 2008 by Private Quentin Tarantino Fan
This is easily the best introduction to Tobin's back catalogue. Some of his later releases are a better demonstration of the mastery of his production, but are nowhere near as... Read morePublished on July 31, 2007 by J. Zbar
Amon at his best, absolutely stonkin, great mix of heavy bass warped jazz and electronic fusion, mixed with more jazzy downtemp numbers, huge track is sordid, big nasty bass. Read morePublished on March 13, 2007 by iTcHy
This one is worlds better than Bricolage. This is a very nice blend of jazz and electronica. The first track is beautifully dark. I definitely recommend this CD.Published on August 28, 2005 by Paymahn Sadat-moussavi
Out of Amon Tobin's first three albums, it is extremely tough to pick a best one. If I were pressed, I would name this a very close second to "Supermodified" and just barely ahead... Read morePublished on April 17, 2005 by Kurt Lennon
