This album would make any Skrillex fan shit their pants. It is a truly excellent fusion of gabber and breakcore!

10 years later, this release is still unbeaten for me in terms of combination of rhythmic complexity, violence, and musical dynamism (buildups).
Overall volume is still bigger than many recent releases in spite of the neverending loudness war, and you don't have a bass squishing the rest of mix.
My favourite tracks : Winnipeg is fucking over / Die die die winnipeg fuckers die / Winnipeg as mandatory scat feed

This release is the best you can get from snares in therms of pure violence. I love to listen to it even now five years later,- it didn't loose any of its charm at all. The fact that it doesn't take itself to serious, like most gabber releases do, just adds up to the fun. This is not a showcase of how cool you can programm music, this is a showcase of how you also can make it sound straight pure hardcore. Classic!

Funk's attempt at dancehall style breakcore/experimental gabber, though very listenable and particularly enjoyable, fall far short of artists such as Bong-Ra or Enduser who entered the scene with it and have developed their sound ever since. Each track though brilliant from a programming perspective seem to lack the incredible emotion (even the anger one would expect) that is found in the majority of other Venetian Snares releases. For the dancehall Funk's raggacore efforts as 'Snares Man!' is vastly superior and highly recommended.

personally, i think this albums funnier than it is angry. which is not to say it doesnt pound - it is gabba after all. the only thing i have against it is that the beats are a bit straighter than i expect from snares - he sticks in relatively repititive bass beats in more songs than i like, so its more pounding than spastic. that said, theres still plenty of experimentation (even some vaguely merzbow shit), some funny as samples and some mad bass. good shizz.

"Winnipeg Is A Frozen Shithole" is one of the most angry and harsh gabber material I've ever listened to. Aaron Funk probably doesn't like his hometown, because this collection -- besides the track titles -- is a pure statement of hate at Winnipeg. This album, more of an EP, is living proof that Venetian Snares is versatile. He doesn't want the listener to be accommodated to his sounds.
With "Winnipeg..." he leaves his mark on the gabber world in a very violent way -- stabbing and castrating the genre with sharp sharp, indeed sharp knives.
