For me it's simply his best album. Everything Prefuse 73 is about. Pure cut-up sampling madness, very versatile and funny but always with a genuine warm and organic touch. And all these small pieces and snippets are perfectly melt together, so it perfectly works as a whole.

Prefuse 73 Extinguished:Outakes (Abstract Hip Hop – UKLP/CD - Warp)

Razored-breaks meets the new digital abstract, in this alternative take on the ‘One Word Extinguisher’ album.
A new style always developing in the world of Prefuse 73, and the flavour’s strictly future. As dope as Hip Hop gets, yet totally different to that fake-ass bland talentless rap-spam spewed out by the should know better majors. In fact, Punk, Rock, NewWave & Soul have more in common –
Listen to this ; don’t look back / down....

Many people i've come across who like prefuse 73 have not actually listened to this. They really should. You should too.

Don't mistake this for things that weren't good enough for the album. These are simply things that did not fit in. When put together all these discards find themselves in their own harmony.

No time for rearviews, Vikings Invade the Mediterranean but don't leave & Whisper in my ear to tell me you hate me, are the most exceptional tracks this release has to offer, despite none of them being over 1:28 long.

EXTINGUISHED: OUTTAKES is a hot mess, one that only Prefuse 73 could present. Even though these bits were axed from his ONE WORD EXTINGUISHER album, he's managed to cobble them into semi-coherency. "Suite for the Ways Things Change" represents the whole, I think, the way it switches tracks, but still seems to be of a whole. The tracks are segued such that it's impossible to tell where one begins and another ends -- a benefit when dealing with such disparate elements. "Dubs That Don't Match" strangely does match, and "Between Man and Woman" begs for something beyond its short running time, as does "I Can't Get My Eyes Off." "3 Sounds from 94" sounds more current than the title would have you believe, while "Robot Snares Got No Cadence of Balance" similarly proves its title wrong. Cheeky Scott Herren... he really knows how to construct.

This is really an exceptional disc. Even though it's presented as outtakes and etc..., it works really well as a whole. It's just like this big soup of beats and all kinds of different styles. Great stuff.
