I have to admit that this album came pretty surprising to me. It is very warm and (as people previously stated) very accessible. I enjoyed every second of it. The single "Welcome to Europe" quickly became one of my favorite tracks from Squarepusher. Every other song has a distinctive feeling and sound. I definetly enjoyed this "grown up" yet still "playful" album and recommend it to every music lover who enjoys jazzy, yet modern music!

It's the most accessible record, the most jazzy and also the most coherent I've ever heard from Squarepusher.
Without a doubt, this is the album to first listen to for anybody who wants to discover this multifaceted artist, some of his other releases are quite inaccessible.
Please Squarepusher, come to perform at "Jazz A Vienne" Festival !

It may be easy to dismiss the free mini CD that is included with this. However, when listened to at ridiculously high volumes on a proper home theatre setup with subwoofer, it is extremely effective and superb. Not for the headphones whatsoever like the LP can be. If you have it collecting dust on the shelf, please do yourself a favor and give it another try with the volume flirting with its maximum limits

This album blew me away when I first heard it. A very surprising and my favorite Squarepusher release ever. I love the fusion of mad drum and bass with tuneful Jazz. Also thrown into the mix are plenty of abstract ambient elements. Truely magnificent!

It keeps you on your toes right through the 3 beautiful slabs of vinyl. You are never sure what will be comming next, sometimes I feel like I'm being slapped round the face by it. So complex all the way through I never get tired of listening to it.

Now then. This is rather special. Ever bold time traveller Tom Jenkinson spoils the avid listener with a tantalizing array of undefinable acoustic-electronic landscapes. There are serious splashes of Doctor-Who era-type eerieness (Welcome to Europe, where Kraftwerk met drum 'n' bass, fabulous), the disorientating yet beautiful sound of choirs from space (Planetarium), tender Fender jazz noodlings on Circlewave 2, downright odd forays into choppy bleepydom inbetween the big, melodic chunks and my personal favourite, one very cute lullaby entitled "Bubble Life." Those finely crafted trademark bass lines are everywhere, slapping the electronic instruments into shape to produce warm, gushing melodies that almost manage to break the icy soundscapes... ace.

Clearly not Tom's best work, but there's still some solid tracks on here that will bring back good memories. Planetarium is a belter, Welcome to Europe is also good. Modern Bass Guitar is nice, but sounds like a strange mix of Anstromm Feck 4 and Come on my Selector...

Fans of Tom's jazzy / electronic stuff will also be at home here, with a few tracks containing 'Music is rotted one note' era type stuff.

Not nearly as groundbreaking or well constructed as Hard Normal Daddy or Go Plastic and the free 3" CD is rubbish compared to the last one, (Square Window).

This is Squareepushers best album to date. What makes this a favourite of mine is the melodies and comparative so pace of most of the album, it simply makes it much more accessible. Yes his other stuff has melodies, but this is just, well, more! Favorite tracks are the opener Hello Meow, a stomping track, The Modern Bass Guitar, which is a classic Northern Warp beautie. Keep up the good work Tom.

This is a very funk album and quite good. Although Im familer with Squarepusher, and have heard all of his music from his different albums Im not really an expert... and i don't own any. But with my groowing interest in Aphex Twin(AFX) and Luke vibert i thogh I'd buy my first Tom jenkinson CD. And it was a great pleasure. although I can see why many aren't calling this innovative or groundbreaking like Feed me weird things or I care because you do I don't think that's any reason to dislike it. I mean, how far can you really push a genre... and honestly I think it reached it peak way back with Do you know squarepusher. Just because he added a "jazzy" flavor to it on Ultravistor, doesn't make it any more innovative... it's the same thing just with a slightly different tone.

Tom J has reached his experimental limits, but not his Musical limits, and this music sound much more melodic than anything I've heard from him to date. hello Meow is a real great, and the single "welcome to Europe" is very fun. So maybe it's not the most innovative peice of work, but so wasn't Chosen Lords and that was still kick ass. It's nice to see an Artist go back to his roots, and still be able to do it better...

2006 sees TJ returning to a more "mellow" sound, if you can describe any of his music as such. After 2 albums of skitter-freakery and 1 of him spilling his brains out onto the canvas(so to speak), we have Hello Everything, an album full of jazz bass, relatively straightforward drums, and overall, it's a very good album.

Straight-up jazz numbers like "Theme from Sprite" and "Circlewave 2"(a worthy followup to its namesake on Ultravisitor); the "Central Line"-esque "Hello Meow"; early Spymania-like tracks such as "Rotate Electrolyte" & "Planetarium"; "Plotinus", which would fit right in with numbers like Big Loada's "Massif" and "Port Rhombus"; "The Modern Jazz Guitar"(the requisite 200+ BPM freakout), and it all ends with "Orient Orange", which sees TJ doing SAW II-era Aphex(and somehow doing it better, which is saying a lot...SAW II is still #1 in my ambient list).

Pick this up, turn the speakers up, and transport yourself...
