Really great as background music. Haven't given it a dedicated, attentive listen yet.

From Kurtco
Shadow did an absolutely masterful job and you really feel his love for music, the hours of listening spent studying each sample and then assemble them to make something totally new, something unique. The ability he has to apprehend the music he listens to is simply phenomenal. Between "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling / Transmission", "Organ Donor", "Midnight In A Perfect World" ... we are constantly transported to another universe, in whatever something we would never want to leave, as if everything was better around us. It is a pure auditory orgasm. Since I know this album, I listen to the day, the evening, while I sleep ... And I think it will last a very long time. With this album DJ Shadow shows that he is as much an absolute mad of music, that he is conjurer: a mystical collage, fascinating.

10/10

One of the best albums ever produced, DJ Shadow is quite literally a genius when it comes to sampling and mixing.

I’m very glad that sampling has allowed people to compose great music without having to access a huge studio. But I would be more awed by sample-based music that doesn’t sound like it could be replicated by a huge studio other than the scratches and voice samples. That’s what makes electronics in music so great right? The fact that you can do new things with it.

What more can I say? Right, trippy beats... Aphex Twin was simply first... and better. Right, lengthy drum loops... The Chemical Brothers were simply first... and better. Right, the first album that is completely made with samples... is that really a landmark? I sure as hell don’t want to know what the first album sounded like that was completely made with synths.
There is really no reason to think this is a masterpiece... unless you haven’t heard any other sample-based music, or unless you’re incredibly America-centered like most reviewers when they reviewed this.

I totally get the comparisons people are making to jazz.

From JulianR
This is such a cool album. I just feel cool listening to it. Its simply so unique and out there. Its just bursting with creativity; it feels like a whole new take not just on hip hop or electronic, but music in general. It would be the post-rock equivalent of the genre, I suppose. Other than a few just plain odd samples and the awfully dated sounding intro, its one helluva listen, though it does take a couple listens to appreciate fully.

Also shout out to the number song, the most underrated one on the album and an absolutely fun track.

It's an impressive assemblage, but not something that really delighted me in any meaningful way.

What a record. Such a wide range of amazing samples put together that somehow feels like I'm being taken to some sort of future.
