Prefuse 73 - Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian

Forty-nine minutes. Twenty-nine tracks. Yes, that's right: forty-nine minutes (48:38 for the pedantic) and twenty-nine tracks. Hence nearly every "track" sounds like nothing more than a clip found on another Warp artist's recording studio floor. Trust me; scooping the hair from a barber's shop floor and stuffing it inside your CD player would probably result in a noise just as involving.

While previous album Preparations included an early airing for the currently hot School of Seven Bells, there is nothing so distinguishing here. Like a man with ADD, Prefuse 73 (a.k.a. Guillermo S. Herren) jumps from random idea to random idea (each labelled with a pretentious title), creating a jumble of electronica and hip-hop beats which may occasionally - very occasionally - induce brief toe-tapping or wobbling from side to side. There are certainly no concessions to the casual listener and quite probably none to anyone who can't see the emperor's new clothes.
