        It remains one of Squarepusher's finest albums. Quite a change from his celebrated 1995 EPs. "...Theme" and "Kodack" are solid as expected, but it's when Jenkinson goes deep with "Theme from Ernest Borgnine" and "UFOs over Leytonstone" he surprises.

          Feed Me Weird Things" by Squarepusher is a groundbreaking release in the world of electronic music. The album showcases the artist's mastery of complex rhythms and intricate sound design, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with electronic music. The tracks are experimental yet highly listenable, with a strong sense of melody and structure. The production quality is top-notch, with a wide range of textures and sounds that keep the listener engaged. Overall, a must-listen for fans of experimental electronic music and a timeless classic in the genre.

            Just a small head to head comparison, and that on Tundra, as three users have commented on that track.
            I did listen to the remaster on headphones and I could hear no clipping or any other anomaly to speak of.
            However, comparing it to the original vinyl from 1996, the remaster has a more pronounced / separated drum sound, as if not only more separated, but also louder than the original mastering. The bass on the other hand is much richer and full on the original as opposed to the remaster, where it hasn't been as cared for as the drums.
            To my ears, the original sounds better than the remaster.

                anyone here (with high-end system) ending up purchasing another copy - copys because of the noisy parts included ? I am asking myself is it worth buying another one !

                  Extraordinary lp.

                  Quality is good, but a little background noise is audible during the quieter parts.

                  Can anyone confirm this (maybe it’s only my copy, and other presses are deadly silent)?

                    So, a bit of back story. I have been attempting to get more into the streaming thing rather than playing my self made recordings of my vinyl in my car. Driving back from Glasgow a couple of nights ago, wondering what I wanted to listen to, it came to mind I hadn't listened to my old fave Squarepusher for a while. I looked him up, but this album isn't on Spotify yet.

                    That surprised me, as this was his best work in my opinion. I think I listened to it non-stop in '96! So I had to give it a spin when I got home, and also check out the Discogs entry. First of all, listening to this again after some years, it has not lost any shine. Some amazing tracks on here. Listening to the intro of Tundra sent huge fuzzy shivers down my spine. Squarepusher Theme, North Circular, Theme From Ernest Borgnine, U.F.O.'s Over Leytonston - all amazing. The Swifty is still my personal fave, dub jazz drum and bass, amazing playing and programming and feel.

                    Another shock is this hasn't been reissued on vinyl to date (Sept 2018). This release is for sure up there for me for a top 10 album to put on a good vinyl system, crank it up, sit back, and soak it in.

                      This is prime time Squarepusher. Hard Normal Daddy and Feed Me Weird Things are two albums that I don't think in all these years Tom has surpassed (and both have, let's say, questionable names for albums, don't you think?) . His newer works just don't reflect his creativity in the correct way. FMWT is a bit darker than Hard Normal Daddy but does not lack in the insane drum programming and Amen chopping. The track Tundra is my favourite Squarepusher track to date, at the time I'd heard nothing like it. Around this time Tom had wanted to bring drum 'n' bass / jungle to a much darker psychedelia and nothing screams his motives more than Tundra. This gloomy vibe is not continued so much throughout the album but this allows for tracks like Theme From Ernest Borgnine, which has a much lighter lead and almost flowing drums - I always feel like this track describes an escape from a gushing river. Fantastic album. If you find it for a good price on vinyl grab it and run.
