Finally, D&B with personality!

"I'm not a huge fan of drum 'n' bass. A lot of it sounds the same to me, unless it's D&B's evil twin, drill 'n' bass. Drill 'n' bass demigod Aphex Twin, however, cites his friend Luke Vibert (AKA Plug, AKA Wagon Christ) as a major influence. So when I found a copy of this album used, I gave it a try. Yeah, it has a lot of the trappings of typical D&B (breezy suspended-chord synth pads, marijuana references, "Amen" break run into the ground all the way to China). But Luke's personal brand of Austin Powers-style silliness shines through and makes what could have been an endurance test into a delight - nay, a classic. No collection of '90's intelligent techno should be without this album."
A classic of drum n' bass.....

"It's funny how much consensus their typically is in the drum n' bass community regarding what are/are not classic albums. Although normally subsumed into the second rank of performers by many (i.e. behind Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Amon Tobin, etc.) Luke Vibert (Plug, Wagon Christ) on this book puts together an album of uncommon ability that has managed to stay both current and, well, brilliant over a couple of years.....This is not dance music. If you generally have liked the d n'b / jungle/house stuff that can almost be danced to (Goldie and Roni Size come to mind) this is going to be a disappointment: it's a heady, minimalist album that relies on the listener pretty much just sitting and focusing. It's a brilliant album, though. If someone likes Photek's old stuff or Amon Tobin or even some of the other more jazzy Ninja Tune stuff (Cinematic Orchestra) this probably is a worthwhile buy....."
Take a journey with the man, the man among many men......

"The other day while I was driving, I was listening to Plug's "Drum and Bass for Papa" and I found myself cracking up. I thought, "You know, this guy's really funny, he's so.....agro-like." It's like, what exactly is he trying to convey with his music? What is Plug doing? And why? Some of the songs are so amazing, like , it's like drinking Jolt, running, swimming, playing badminton, loosing a game of chess, and solving a word problem. Next to his good friend Aphex Twin, (special note: I'm not actually comparing him to Aphex) this guy has to be one of the most crazed psychofunked musicmaking soul-brothers out there. Directions: Listen to his music once daily for emotional balance and eat Doritos simultaneously. Please clean ears before listening. Thank you."
