On David Holmes' second album, the first to be released in America, he explores with even greater depth his fascination with original soundtrack material. Recording snippets of conversation on the streets of New York with his DAT recorder, Holmes returned to England and weaved the vocal samples around his amorphous embrace of several electronic styles, including big beat techno of the type favored by the Chemical Brothers, intelligent drum'n'bass (as on the title track), and the gentler soundtrack-feel of ambient-house. The effect created is like that of a soundtrack, and even though Let's Get Killed isn't attached to a film, it flows with energy and grace.
Best David Holmes Album Period
Amazing tracks broken up with conversations recorded while wandering the streets of New York City while he was on an acid trip. This is the one.
Let's Get Fantastic!
I can't believe I'm the first to say something about this amazing album. It's really this simple: It was great when it first came out and it still is all these years later. Do yourself a HUGE favor.
How Hip Can You Get?
I've been listening to this cat for years and didn't even know it until today. "Rodney Yates" is such an ultra hip track. I can just picture sitting down in a lounge on the lower east side of New York sipping an extra large Martini with lots of olives. This is the s*%t!
