Why is this an 8.5/10?
>>
it's not. scaruffi and p4k (who originally gave it a 10) must have been on crack.

9/10

A Day in the Garden is a pretty chill track but i don't really get it either tbh. i prefer Squarepusher and less pretentious styles of jungle.
>>
Supermodified is the true 8.5
Brocolage is a 7
>>
>>59624624
all his nu-jazz/dnb albums are pretty bad (with except of supermodified). His best album is def Foley Room which is his more experimental direction
>>
>>59624624
because it reinvented jazz and paved the way for the likes of spring heel jack and such

>It was the 2nd of July, 1997, right around 8:00pm. I was traveling to Chicago with Pitchfork staff writer Swank Porterhouse. We were rolling down I-94 at ridiculous speeds; the sun was racing next to us, determined to get there first.
>Having nothing but 60 CDs in the backseat we were sick of listening to, I popped this future classic in the player for the first time. Initially, we were caught off guard by a warped string section singing sweet melodies a la Tommy Dorsey. That's when the unmistakably jazz riddim set in with a knife to our throats. The string bass pounded at a volume of ten, the saxophone smoothly keeping the cool and the beat of Chicago dead ahead.
>As the city loomed over our heads, Amon rolled out the perfect soundtrack. Insane sampled rhythms and loops, fireball brass sections and overpowering orchestras led the way and I suddenly found myself more immersed in the music than the incredible metropolis before me.
>On Bricolage, Tobin pours some amazingly real-sounding instruments out of his keyboard and sampler, making old jazz music with modern technology. Up there with classic albums by Quincy Jones and Miles Davis, Tobin is a true example of what can be done with a little equipment and a wealth of talent.

Beautiful review. Very enlightening.

>you now remember Ryan Schreiber talking about listening to In Colour in a car drive and how it gave him nostalgic feelings for those 90's years
>you now realize that he equated In Colour's basic pop shit with one of the most forward looking IDM records of the 90's
>>

not even about being a normie, it's just the wrong way to experience music, especially an album like that.
