One thing to point out – I’m no music journo and I never really enjoyed writing about music so don’t expect any deep insights here ya get me? All I have is my instinct and my thirst for finding new veins in the rock face. But this album….this album definitely blew me away on all fronts and almost single handedly got me buying and hunting down tunes again. When I heard it I just knew something ‘new’ was going down and I suddenly felt I had a lot of catching up to do. Kind of on a par with hearing Underground Resistance for the first time, I felt the old obsessive trainspotter awakening again.
Andrew Ryce’s review on Resident Advisor is pretty much on the money in articulating the albums scope and power. Yes, I guess it is part “grime deconstruction” (the removal of “vital pieces” for sure) but I also agree it’s the “silence”, the “quiet”, the spaces left inbetween. More on Logos later….
