Ive never heard Squarepusher, like im familiar with him name because im a big fan of AFX and BOC. His name was always interesting so i decided to check out his stuff, and so i started with Alroy Railroads Tracks.

Holy shit

The sounds I hear this moment are like no other, it has a nice beat and rich in keyboard beats. He can make the scenery with soft noises and make you think a certain thing. I live how this album is related to the Metro City Scene of Subways and Trains.

The trip is amazing. The first 2 song and the last are the jazziest ones.
The middle is where you start losing yourself in the electric life.

Central Line (4 stars) - Love the keyboard it makes you feel like in a subway station with fast beat. Easy Going Song

Sarcacid Part 1 (4 stars) Jazzy drums. Super fast intro but calms down very smooth. This is the calmest jazz song on the album FACT

Sarcacid Part 2 (5 stars) Whoa.. The subway train tooks it dark turn into a soft non jazzy ambient electronic fast drum atmosphere. The song fast drumming with the soft backround. Emotional Tune.

Nux Vomica (5 stars) Healing you with a simple bell beat intro rich in synth. Then the drums start taking its toll. The metro train chutes come back with beat and with crystal keyboard noise.. It sounds so beautiful. Sounds like diamonds and crystals.

Toast for Hardy (5 stars)- Jazzy song drums but the electronic noises arnt too easy going with the scene. It turns the scene into a Strong Deep Metro atmosphere. The first 2 are easy going but this last one is hard drums and hard going yet simple in a beautifully organized way.

An emotional album
Strong in atmosphere
A must have if you enjoy jazz and electronic drumming

This EP, with the exception of "Toast For Hardy," is the absolute best thing Tom Jenkinson has ever made. Jazzy amens, soulful melodies, it's all here. We start off with Central Line, a seemingly simple piece that, in my opinion, is Jenkinson's best song. The piece starts off with a very catchy bassline and soon a wonderfully-crafted amen is thrown into the mix. Then come the solos...

Next are Sarcacid parts 1 and 2 and Nux Vomica. They're more of the same thing as central line, but trust me, 20 minutes of the same stuff is a good good thing.

Last is Toast For Hardy, which I'm sorry to say is a throwaway track. Boring.

Track this one down at all costs. See also: Bubble / Squeek and Vic Acid.
