AMON TOBIN: Hard Sequencer Swing | Seattle Washington | 04/29/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Rarely does an album come along that breaks new boundries and pushes the envelope. The first time I heard this album I was for lack of a better word I was speachless. Truely beatiful textures and tones are only complimented by the hard breaks and inovative drum work. In reading some interviews I learned that all this album was made with Qbase on an old mac and a sampler. The planing and time this must of took blows my mind. So many time in the recently developed and some what pretensious DJ scene, one must listen to album after album to find any thing original and fresh. I was quite inspired to hear Amon Tobins album. Bricolage is evedince that music will still continue to evolve and progress as an artform. The technology and talent equation sometime is often subtracted by hype and divided by ego. I am glad to see that a few individuals are still able to equate technology+talent to = music."
Soulful electronic engineering

"Who said that electronic sampled music couldn't have soul? I suppose I should describe how I got hooked onto Amon Tobin's work. Oddly enough, I listened to the Amon Tobin collection in reverse (Supermodified, Permutation, Adventures In Foam, Bricolage, respectively) While Bricolage doesnt quite match the mixing and production of Supermodified, the hybrid flowing rhythm and layered beats are just unparalleled. Jazz, Rock, Electronic, Dance, Jungle, Ambient. It's honestly way too many influences to be classifiable and that's a tribute to Tobin's unique style. Music at its best."

"If you've perchance stumbled across this page and haven't heard this CD, its actually much more of an improvement for the world than sliced bread.....Amon Tobin and his Ninja Tune labelmates have reinvigorated not just the electronic scence/sound, but are pushing ahead jazz-- which is a move that no one would think could happen. Tobin samples from among the widest spectrum of sources that any compositional artist has, and then combines this with occasionally pounding but occasionally subtle backbeats that results in a music that is both human and non-human, live and contrived....Just do yourself a favor and buy this CD-- and all of his others (including Adventures in Foam-- recorded under the name Cujo). Honestly, I wonder if anyone has ever listened to Tobin and not thought him brilliant?"
