Most charming Black Dog's album for me. No techno and stuff like that from their previous works. A bunch of beautiful nostalgic tracks i.e. Tzaddi, No Lamers, Crayola and of course Euthanasia. This is what I call near-idm mixed with ambient and classic electronica of mid 90s.

<I>Music for Adverts (and Short Films)</I> is the first post-Plaid Black Dog album, and their last one for Warp. And though the tracks may be intriguing, they’re all terribly truncated (hence the title of the album). “The Wind Spirit” and “Jordan” put us deep in the Middle East, first rhythmically and then musically. Ken seems to be bursting at the seams with musical. Indeed, a majority of the tracks seem to be leaning towards that geographic region of the world; albeit with the Black Dog’s unique sense of melody. There’s also the dark funk of “Edgar Allan” and the desert-wandering dirge of “Darkness.” It’s not often that I say that tracks go on for not long enough, but there you have it.
