What? Not a good producer? Have you not listened to this whole album? Have you never heard ANYTHING off of Endtroducing?! EVERY track is bomb on the private press. "6 days" is my particular favorite, with "Mashing On the Motorway" a little bit behind. If you enjoy ambient beats, trip-hop, or anything of the sorts, I highly, highly recomend this.

I like this album, its good to put on in the background while reading. But I have to admit that Shadow is a better DJ than he is a producer. My advice would be to not bother buying this CD but to buy the Mashin' On The Motorway single which has the best tracks from the album on it. Standouts are Six Days and Right Thing / GDMFSOB.

The Private Press is one of DJ Shadow's best moments, the tracks are moody but fresh. Tracks like You can't go home again and fixed income are gems. Well worth listening to, as like all Shadow's back catalogue.
