Although I bought "Music is Rotted" first, this is the album that made me an obsessed fan.
This album changed my life. I was visiting a friend at MICA in Baltimore, and we were walking through all the different student art studios, and this kid was blasting this album while painting. Hearing this album for the first time was like scuba diving for the first time, or flying in an airplane for the first time... it changed the way that I looked at the world. After I heard this album, I only wanted to hear music and make music like this. This album is probably my most significant influence in my musical taste, and I even have the album cover tattooed on my body.

ps. When youtube first debuted years and years ago, Squarepusher was the first thing that I searched, and I found this 1996 german tv interview with him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96PfTcGHZ4Q and in it he was recording to a f'ing REEL TO REEL, and my obsession was only more intensified.

Would be worth it for the Enhanced CD version of the "Come on my selector" video (which the first time I viewed it scared the living SHIT out of me).

The only thing missing here are the tracks "Vic Acid" and the G7000 mix of "Fat controller". Other than that, what more do you want?! You have the headbanging ecstasy trip that is "Big Loada" ("Massif" is definitely a top 5 for me, and OMG "The Body Builder"; plus "Full Rinse" definitely gives the term "rinse" an extreme workout), "Port Rhombus" (which is his best track to date, by far), & 2 tracks from the "Vic Acid" ep!

What the hell are you sitting here for, contemplating these words? Why are you even reading them? Buy this now!!!

Kinda definitive. if you like your beats not overly-glitchy then buy this, Port Rhombus is possibly the best tune ever, Problem Child is funky as hell, although some of the breaks are repeated a bit much. Masif (Stay Strong) is top also, some crazy bass workouts. he uses a lot of retro computer game style sounds which is allways good. better to get the US version otherwise this might be a bit weak. peace.

This is an excellent album/EP in it's own inconsistent Squarepusher way; however, I would say that I prefer the tracklisting of the original Warp (UK) release. I'm glad Nothing put Big Loada at all and it is nice they add the Port Rhombus EP but the album to me feels best starting with Journey to Reedham... for some reason this feels crucial, but then, I owned a copy of the British version for over a year before I purchased the American version.
