Definitely a great one. If you like any of Luke Viberts stuff you will love this one. I think it's even better knowing all the instruments on here aren't samples.

You know 5p4c3b0y I would have to agree! I actually saw them both live perform material from this album. They opened for µ-ziq I think. That was my first listen. I was standing there going now this is different and purchased that album. Looking back I always liked most of what Luke Vibert creates but this album has been a unique departure that I have come to like more with time.

STOP THE PANIC, Luke Vibert's collaboration with pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole, starts off on the right foot with the Western hoedown of "Swing Lite--Alright." "Dischordzilla" stomps around with thick slabs of sound, while "Start the Panic" mixes breaks, exotica, and hip-hop samples (though the vocals sound a bit discordant; on "Nice Cave" they work much better). The country plucking on "Hipalong Hop" adds some perky fun, but it's with "Fly Hawaii" that Cole's guitar really takes center stage. They take a relaxed approach with "This Stuff Is Fresh," which has a dreamy quality, while they're just having a laugh with "Cheng Phooey." The dance party gets underway with the electric bass underpinning "Party Animals," but "Watery Glass Planet (Pt.3)" throws a spanner in the works with a twisted, meandering track. "Songs Of The Night Life" harkens back to the opening, though with a shuffly beat that works quite well. A fun album, if with a few slight missteps.

Incredible fusion of Hawaiian guitar and breakbeats by two talented artists.

BJ Cole is an experimental Hawaiian steel guitarist. He plays the slack-key style of slide guitar but takes it to other dimensions; ordinarily he'd be playing with a combo more likely to suit Fred Frith or Hans Reichel, but apparently he and Luke Vibert got to be mates and decided to record some light-hearted fun together, with spectacular, cohesive and fun results, as the previous comment notes. breaks, d'n'b, hawaiian lounge and acid, like a mai tai in heaven.
