Some of the best downtempo trip hop I've heard. .

This album has the complete 14 minute version of "Indian Giver" that was sadly cut short on the "Chill Out or Die America" CD. Really love that song.

One of my favourite so called "Trip Hop" albums. Luke Vibert is a master of his game.
Often copied but rarely equaled.

Brilliant. 20 years on this genre bending classic requires a rerelease, I do believe.

Hip-hop, jazztastic electronica with a good dose of humour. It's enteresting to listen back and think about how Uziq, AFX, SquareP and Vibert were pushing each others sounds around back then.

THROBBING POUCH is Wagon Christ's introduction to the big leagues of electronic music, and it still stands up amazingly well today. "Reedin'" brings on the woodwinds in a whirlwind of good-natured fun, while "Down Under" retains some of Vibert's ambient vibe, but introducing some ethnic strings into the mix as well. "Rexcist" goes dark and deep, but "Floot" brings things back up in mood. "Pull My Strings" stays true to its name and brings in the violin samples, while "Spotlight" processes those easy listening samples into a mellow trip. But for me, the apex of the album is "E-Z Listener" which manages to incorporate an oboe into its funky, upbeat surroundings. "Ring Piece" brings the jazz up with a double bass and a some horn samples. On the bonus AT ATMOS disc (available with the limited edition of the album), Vibert returns to some of his longer pieces, like the ambient Middle Eastern oud-tinged "Hasjit" or the swirling layers of "Inside Out." But he also brings his proto-trip-hop sensibilities to bear to the longer "Yeah" and the jazzy "Free Bass," which merges a looped piano riff with a double bass and some test tones. A landmark album.
