Think you need to give credit where it's due, though. Maybe he is big headed but some of Holmes early trax are pretty inspired. Death Before Disco - Afro Indian is strong and his remix of Like A Motorway by Saint Etienne is an acid workout up there with the very best.

Wow, I just couldn't allow this to be the only dickhead review of Holmes' work. Unfair, obnoxious and bratty ( perhaps a London thing eh?). The music being my number one priority here, I treasure a majority of his efforts. While maybe not all his early trance-y techno material is perfect, I do find myself going back to his astral SOP 'Smokebelch II' remix quite often. By the time he dropped 'Lets Get Killed' he seemed to find his feet as well as his style that he has continued to develope. I personally love the way Holmes marries live-ish retro psych flute and funk with nicely programmed breaks, how he flawlessly weaves these elements together is distinct to him, second to none! (maybe some early Ninja Tune is within the ballpark but more cartoony) 'Bow Down To The Exit Sign' is excellent from start to finish. His sharp soundtracks have greatly seasoned many mediocre flicks, all the way up to his smooth, fantastic production on Primal Scream's 'More Light'. Speaking of the Scream and "appalling remixes", his rework of 'Uptown' from their previous album pours gas on any dancefloor! Haters and "me too!" lackeys bacdafucup and make way for Holmes to stand tall as he should.

Recorded like a tool; looked like one; talked like one. David Holmes was one of the least talented people coughed-up by the 1990s, and that's saying something. Appalling remixes too. It was especially amazing that a man who was so ignorant as to believe that the word "let's" has no apostrophe should include that very word in the titles of his first two albums.
