Cujo, el mejor lado de Amon Tobin
leim | Santiago, Chile | 09/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cuado compré este Cd, no sabia que CUJO, era otro de los alter egos de Amon Tobin. Lo desucbri cuando recibi el CD y ahi decia, produced and writed by Amon Tobin.

Lejos de alegrarme esa situacion, comence a esucharlo, y lo que a primera vista parecia un Drum & Bass normal, poco a poco comenzo a transformarce en una increible mezcla de Acid Jazz, con sonidos electricos y freneticos generando magnificas atmósferas.
Este disco es de 1997, pero sus sonidos son tan actules y atemporales que lo colocan a la par con los ultimos trabajos del mismo artista (amon tobin por estos dias).

Dos Pistas de este CD son las que me cautivaron por sobremanera, y que podrian escuchar, al primera es "3. The Light", con sonidos downtempo, samples voacales y loops repetitivos al mas puro estilo breakbeats, la segunda es "4. Cat People" igual casi downtempo mas frenetica y rápida que la anterior ambas crean una dupla bellisima.

Los sonidos de este disco son excellentes y sus mezclas soberbias, por eso tengo que dejar en calaro que CUJO, es sin dudarlo el mejor lado de AMON TOBIN.

(escribe en tu lengua, las palabras se derriten en tu boca)"
Crazy crazy good

"I usually skip to track three to start this album off. "The Light" is just a beautiful song. Tobin mixes together jazz and drum&bass like no one else can and was on the very top of his game here. This was THE record for me to get high to until I quit smoking. And it still holds up. Like Boards of Canada say, the music should be the drug. This was released in the US in a screwed-up form; look for the Ninja Tune rerelease and everything should be okay, okay? Now run along to school..."

"Before Amon Adonai Santos de Aravjo Tobin shortened his name to simply Amon Tobin, he released his debut album under Cujo alias (indeed borrowed from a Stephen King novel), on a small south London label, Ninebar Records. Soon after, Ninja Tune noticed the Brazilian born artist, and signed him in 1997 for his critically acclaimed Bricolage. The rest, as we say, is history. Covering Tobin's bio and discography is a lengthy task, so I'll leave the research up to you [and shame on you if don't know the artist already]. In 2002, Adventures In Foam was re-released on Ninja Tune, this time as a double CD, containing previously unreleased material. Here's a statement from the label: "[The] fact remains that "Adventures In Foam" was a really good record, one that deserved to be heard, so when Ninja were offered an opportunity to re-release it, they jumped at the chance. Not least, because a rather unscrupulous company in the States have been circulating a version of the record with a changed tracklist, different (and unapproved) cover art and mis-titled tracks". So this should settle it once and for all. If you first fell in love with Amon Tobin after hearing his Bricolage, full of jazz infused, Latin influenced downtempo and drum'n'bass breaks and broken beats, then you'll definitely enjoy another round of Tobin's signature sampling techniques. You'll even smile after recognizing familiar sounds and beats, later reused in his subsequent albums. Definitely still enjoyable after all these years, as a first or repeated listen. A must for collectors. Artist cloud includes DJ Food, Funki Porcini, Bonobo, Wagon Christ and The Herbaliser. Favorite unreleased track: The Brazilianaire."
