I am sure Aaron lost some "true" fans through the release of Glue Funk Hits due to it's "catchiness". You can absolutely say this one is working in "commercial" manner, though most of the tracks are danceable breakbeat tracks. Nor the less this one was indeed a step forward in his discography, making his genius easier to understand for bigger audiences.

More chaos from Venetian Snares on HIGGINS ULTRA LOW TRACK GLUE FUNK HITS 1972-2006. Here, "Dance Like You're Selling Nails" takes some operatic vocals and puts them through the hardcore wringer before switching gears for a slightly cleaner sound break before bringing the vocals back. But the frenized chopped-up funk of "Banana Seat Girl" sounds completely unlike anything else he's done; "Make Ronnie Rocket" and "Cobra Commander" however, truck in the noise, which he has done; same with the blippy "Vokeheads." "Deadman DJ" has a hint of ragga and a Middle Eastern influence in its high-pitched melody, but don't expect anything to stick around except for the beats. "Walmer Side" has a mmore typical icy IDM-style melody going on, and "Dismantling Five Years" is surprisingly mellow, though "We Are Oceans" brings back the beats, more Squarepusher-like and less feedbacky at the start, though his trademark insanity crashes in by the end. A nice step forward, I think.

Love the album, the only thing that irks me is the fact that it says "1972-2006" when it was released in 2002. If it was a joke, it certainly flew past my head.

I have been searching for music similar to "Banana Seat Girl" for years without any luck besides maybe some free releases by The Gasman. If ANYONE knows of music with this kind of quick funk-slice breakbeat momentum or feel PLEASE COMMENT! I got so fed up I started trying to take a stab at it.

This release is an absolute masterpice of electronic music. It has harsh amened out beats in odd time signatures that Snares is renowned for, but with a more IDM feel than previous releases in my opinion. There is even a pair of downtempo tracks which showcase an entirely different side of Aaron Funk. The record is a testament to VSnares' production prowess, his stunning originality, and his ability to incorporate a vast array of styles and genres into one cohesive whole. A classic that will make it into the history books for sure.

Highlights for me are Dance... and We Are Oceans, which are respectively probably his most upbeat and beautiful works so far. The best marriage of classical and breakcore yet, excepting perhaps Squarepusher's Tundra 4. (Without meaning sound like a pretentious prick.)
