It doesn't matter that the first time I properly heard this was stoned out of my mind after an afternoon of drinking... this EP is HEAVY, even if you're straight!

It takes the art of sampling/DJ-ing/turntableism (whatever you want to call it) to another level. You don't (often) hear the cuts or scratches, what you hear is a magnum opus of mind-bending aural magnificence.

Having read Eliot Wilder's 33⅓ book on the making of "Endtroducing..." (which is a pretty good read) it's clear that much of DJ Shadow's early work was done when he was feeling quite lonely (at least in musical terms) and sometimes depressed (personally). This feeling is exemplified in "WDYSLL".

That's not to say that the music isn't uplifting... it most certainly is but it has a general air of melancholy that I feel is unsurpassed in the realm of 'hip hop' music (as broad as that spectrum needs to be to encompass this).

Highly, highly recommended and TOTALLY unique.
