Album Review

Always one to confound the expectations of the listening public, Amon Tobin's version of a remix album is only half true, the other side comprising a surprisingly focused mini-set of productions featuring Ninja Tune friends and well-wishers. (Fortunately, the title makes it abundantly clear what this record contains.)

Of the remixes, Prefuse 73's is the best, a balance of his b-boy cut-ups and the deep breaks of Tobin's original.
