CD Reviews

5 Stars for a tremendous...but now 'Out of Print' title....

"Another of those albums that has long been seeked out by music enthusiasts, and thus has been out of print & unavailable to buy. Considered to be his best work, musically this really is everything and the kitchen sink...not insofar that the music is swamped with samples and sound, But insofar that `Trip-Hop, Techno, Eclectic Breakbeat, Electronica, intelligent Drum `n' Bass all pass through these doors with an unrivalled adeptness, that it's hard not to believe that it's a collective of artists all contributing. Listen to the blissfully subtle beats of "Scrapes" that gently twitch into melody, and morphing smoothly into atmospheric techno...before warping & disfiguring into rasping samples, with the atmospheric elements still clearly audible in the background, producing a decidedly skilful sound, yet superbly short, `Wagon Christ' is a genius and his albums are more than worth the (considerable) effort of trying to track down, if you're into the IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) genre."

"Luke Vibert (a.k.a Wagon Christ) put this record out in 1994, yet its still lightyears ahead of most trip-hop/idm albums today. DJ Shadow, Amon Tobin, and Prefuse 73 definitely borrowed a lot from this break-through recording. Not even Vibert himself has topped Throbbing Pouch. If you like (good) music, get this album. It's some of the best music I've ever heard."
Sit back, kick off your shoes, and try to relax a little.

"One has to remind themselves that this is from 1994. I find it surprising how long other artists took to even catch up to the intricacy of this sound. The strangest part about going back to the earliest w.c recordings is that they dont sound outdated, they sound better!

Most great artists always produce their most emotional material on the first albums. I think their is a preconcieved notion that electronic albums should be better, or more evolved then the last... Well, that is wrong. When I first heard this album I never respected it for what it is, and what IS it exactly? Eclecticism. Music that is produced without limits or boundries.

From this point on, electronic musicians have unlimited sounds to work with... so Luke breaks out everything but the kitchen sink and crafts this album. And the result? Stupendous!!!

Their are no cliches beats here, no predetermined genre, no 4 to the floor beat... this music is something that evolves as you listen, a salad bar of melodies.

As for "best" material, which is probably what you think im getting at mainly... this may not be, entirely, the "best" w.c songs. Yet, it is without a doubt, the rawest, most visceral outing of wagon christ."
