Album Review

It must be one of the most unlikely collaborations in electronic music, but producer Luke Vibert's collaboration with pedal steel master B.J. Cole actually turns out alright, though the fusion is not quite as surprising as it originally sounded. On most tracks, Cole's shimmering, fluid guitar lines are simply assimilated into Vibert's kitchen-sink production style, and the results don't sound vastly different than Vibert's last full-length, Tally Ho! (recorded under his Wagon Christ pseudonym). It's good to see an excellent producer pushing himself — and all of electronic music — into new territory; Stop the Panic just doesn't sound quite like the revolution it should be.

Customer Reviews

Kick back and hold on to your underwear.

From dissonant harpsichord-like sounds blasting away in songs like Dischordzilla to the gentle, soothing, and highly amusing steel guitar riffs in 'Fly Hawaii' this is an album that has it all. Personal reccomendations of Swing Lite-Alright, Fly Hawaii, Nice Cave, and This Stuff is Fresh. Get ready for a sonic ride.


Steal guitars,banjo'smixed in with hip hop beats to drum and bass.His songs are sad,haunting,to silly.Always a pleasure to listen to this guy,he always amazes me.

Vibert is a digital genius

I have had this cd since it was available for import - and now you can get it CHEAP. This guy is amazing - hopefully we will see some other stuff in the vein of Plug - Drum'n'Bass For Papa as well. Great stuff. Check out Start the Panic or Fly Hawaii.
