Album Review
Reviewed 2004-10-04 
Excellent sample-art trip hop and electronica. All sounds found on the recording were recorded live on the streets of NYC. However, this is not a gimmick, as the end result is not an obvious sum of the parts. This is the real deal. For the fans of Matmos, People Like Us, Prefuse 73. -stirling

(((1))) Street vocal samples and street sounds looped in an irregular fashion that evolves to emulate the effect of walking down a busy change.
((2)) Beat make from street sounds (a la Stomp, but more artistic) Nice interspersing vocal samples.
3) Spoken word about baseball along with samples of children. (under 1 minute long!)
4) Crunchy beats, various notes create a basic melody.
((5)) ** FCC’s ** Hip hop! Beat made from horse hooves.
6) Another street collage with a heavy emphasis on bus sounds and horns.
7) vocals listing off where they are.
8) buzzing sounds, birds, swirl around.
9) A good light beat made with clicking sounds with long chords of music (how’d they sample that?)
10) short song playing with vocal samples (under 1 min long!)
((11))) **FCC “pissed”** hip hop! Great beat and lyrics.
