High quality Triphop. His finest moment.

Gotta echo the sentiments of the other reviewers here. This is an essential piece of mid-90's trip hop / downtempo and one of Ninja Tune's finest moments of their early catalogue. All at once Funky, drugged out, cheeky and sexy - this is a classic.

One of the seminal albums that kicked off the "sleazy listening" genre, Funki Porcini's _Hed Phone Sex_, is a sensuous piece of downtempo that helped put Ninja Tune on the map. The beats are slow and sexy, the samples are aimed to tickle and please, the jazz smoky and slinky. You can tell that Funki Porcini was having fun making this album, and his sense of dirty humor shines through, right from the opening interlude of "A Word of Vice." "Dubble" delivers the dub rhythm, as promised, which carries into "King Ashabanapal Pt 1" and finally treads lightly into drum 'n' bass. Funki knows how to mix things up too: while "The Deep" certainly dwells in that area for a while, halfway through, he throws in some horn stabs to break up the sounds. If there's anything more groovy and ridiculous than "Poseathon," I have yet to hear it. "Wicked, Cruel Nasty and Bad" has a certain wicked glint in its eye. But the album can do dreamy just as well: "The Softest Thing in the World (Motorway Accident)" could have almost been a Irresistable Force track if not for the jazz piano chords, and "Long Road" takes the album out on a blissful drift. Smooth as silk.

I'd have to say that this is definitely one of the most essential downtempo/trip hop releases of the 90's. Hed Phone Sex is an awesomely strange mix of warmth, melody, humor and melancholy. Though this is probably his most accessible release in my opinion, it still has that bizarre uniqueness that sets Funki Porcini apart from the rest of the field. This album seriously put a much-appreciated gentle smile on my brain back in 1995 that has fortunately never left.

One of the records at the beginning of the electronic music revolution determined my awareness towards music. Brilliant, atmospheric, psychedelic. It naturally balances between jazz, dub, trip-hop, and spoken-word-sample art. Should be an object proposed to every wanna-be downtempo artist.

The fusion of jazz cuts and occasional spurts of b-boy drums breaks in 'King Ashabanapal'.Plus many others including the awesome 'Long Road', a song that defines tranqulity, this is worth a listen even just for the comedy of 'A word of Vice'.

"Long Road" (C3) - a legend. The psychodelic deepness of the spoken words is singularely in its style. The whole album is great too.

The Track "Long Road" sends you with its psychodelic sounds
in the background and the slow speaking voice in another
dimensions in listening to music. It binds me until you get
addict, since then I know why to listen to Ninja Tune.
