    Just listened to it a while ago.Lovely laidback jazzy loops drowned in a dubby and downtempo atmosphere.Lush ,now old school album.

      High quality Triphop. His finest moment.

        One of the seminal albums that kicked off the "sleazy listening" genre, Funki Porcini's _Hed Phone Sex_, is a sensuous piece of downtempo that helped put Ninja Tune on the map. The beats are slow and sexy, the samples are aimed to tickle and please, the jazz smoky and slinky. You can tell that Funki Porcini was having fun making this album, and his sense of dirty humor shines through, right from the opening interlude of "A Word of Vice." "Dubble" delivers the dub rhythm, as promised, which carries into "King Ashabanapal Pt 1" and finally treads lightly into drum 'n' bass. Funki knows how to mix things up too: while "The Deep" certainly dwells in that area for a while, halfway through, he throws in some horn stabs to break up the sounds. If there's anything more groovy and ridiculous than "Poseathon," I have yet to hear it. "Wicked, Cruel Nasty and Bad" has a certain wicked glint in its eye. But the album can do dreamy just as well: "The Softest Thing in the World (Motorway Accident)" could have almost been a Irresistable Force track if not for the jazz piano chords, and "Long Road" takes the album out on a blissful drift. Smooth as silk.

          The Track "Long Road" sends you with its psychodelic sounds
          in the background and the slow speaking voice in another
          dimensions in listening to music. It binds me until you get
          addict, since then I know why to listen to Ninja Tune.
