"I purchased this disc on a pure whim. Unlike my friend who was irish, this band is from England. However, there are several similarities. Both are well packaged, spirited, somewhat funky, and know how to get a groove on. while I am not fond of rap, I found the addition of MC DET to be a nice touch. With the exception of the first track, his rap is more subdued and he isn't rapping about murder, rape or other acts of violence. If there's a downside its the inclusion and possible over use of electronics which, at times, sounds a little dated. Buy it and dance the night away."
A Beginning or fin du siècle?

"If I had the time and resources to make a film, Making Bones would be its soundtrack. Listening to this album and you find yourself within the inner ear of an encyclopedia of inspiration-its sources and results. Making Bones is jazzed up with improvised and inherent energy and yet so undertoned and nuanced by the gods of chill that you can listen to it while waking or sleeping. It is a bellicose album for the passive, the peaceful search for meaning in chaos and deconstruction. Amongst the sounds of bass, guitar, horns, drugs and the minimalist use of samples, these label-dodgers, artful in their undertaking, reproduce the sound of electronic music on live instruments and take the listener past so many different styles-- so many stories-- the majority of which are pure instrumental.
You never miss a voice.
I'd opt for this as a soundtrack, my choice for an album for the next century."

"Move over Blue Lines, Dummy, and Maxinquaye, you have company in the Trip Hop Album Hall of Fame. Making Bones is jazz-ier and drum 'n bassier than its brethren. The bass and drum loops are heavy, sharp, and striking. MC Det (MC-ing on 3 tracks)and Allison David (crooning achingly on 2 others) seem born for this style of music. All together, the atmosphere is smooth, brooding, and dynamic."
